its interesting actually feeling my brain re-adjust (virtually) to a fully pedestrian scaled environment (from a streetcar/automobile scale that may or may not accommodate pedestrians well) looking at these.

I would love to own a home and be able to walk to an area like that once I have kids and all that...

Seems like a perfect mix of urban but doesn't have a chaotic vibe to it...or stressful environment may be a better word choice.

yeah, it's actually not chaotic at all, except when the streetcar tears peoples car doors off. but it's no philly or queens in that way.

welcome to my world.


live on a quiet kid-friendly street like this: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.9657...7i16384!8i8192

then walk a couple blocks over to a commerical street like this: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.9655...7i16384!8i8192


it's "urbanish" and walkable, but car ownership is not onerous (car use can be another issue).

it has a nice mix of SFH's, 2/3/6-flats, & corner apartment buildings (lots of unit type diversity).

it's certainly not the east village, but it's also certainly not schaumburg.

it's just a nice creamy family-friendly middle. and you can buy a family-sized home without being a millionaire!!!

it's not for everyone, but i feel really lucky that my family ended up in neighborhood like lincoln square.

I live about an 1/2 mile from this stretch of Ventura Blvd and pass it every day. If you go a few blocks east, you will have your Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, Starbucks, Coffee Beans, Lexus, Porche, Lamborghini dealerships and just about any type of fancy restaurant, and bar/lounges you can think of from every ethnic background. It is really only a small stretch thats like this, there is a lot of money in the mist of this spot.

I will admit for Woodland Hills to be such an exclusive area, the portion of Ventura Blvd running through here is rather ugly. By the way I live near those highrise buildings to the left in that scene. That’s the Warner Center which is a major business district in the west valley.
Yea, the houses in the South San Fernando Valley are insane. They just get overshadowed by the more famous, glitzier areas further south.

I work in Encino btw.

What a wonderful neighborhood. St. Louis really has some great neighborhoods. I've only been through the city a couple times, but the whole area around Wash U and Forest (?) Park is just awesome.

The apartment streets around this area pictured (https://www.google.com/maps/@38.6578...7i13312!8i6656) remind me a bit of what you'd find in the Cleveland Heights/Shaker Square area of Cleveland.
