I love the neighborhood I live in...very quiet and family oriented. It's beautiful, well cared for, not too far from parks, grocery stores, and other shopping. Beverly Hills is awesome!

After coming from the Dyckman Projects in NYC this is truly HEAVEN.

Beautifully serene, relatively safe, and a prestigious & astute investment. Yet insincere and superficial. Individual sense of privacy does not translate to friendly neighbors or sense of community. Love the area, tolerate the people,

I have no idea what Joe and Tom are talking about. I lived in BH and every part (except maybe the very southern part) is very glitzy. Denver hit it right on.

I moved to the 90211 zip code area last summer for my son's high school education. It's worth every penny. I had lived in Windsor Square and in some ways both areas are comparable. But BH has certain advantages: more small businesses, a community vibe, and the cleanliness is remarkable. Why live anywhere else?

BH is the most walkable neighborhood in LA, and the pedestrians- both locals and tourists- give it a different feel than any other hood in the county. Get away from Rodeo and Beverly and you would not suspect were in a famous place- its a quiet, lovely, and mostly modest place to live

Beverly Hills has a great small-town feel to it. Your neighbors are friendly and local shopkeepers will greet you by name. People have the idea that BH is all about the glitz- Rodeo Drive and Neiman Marcus. It's that but it's also Crescent Drive and Mom-and-Pop stores like the BH Market and Pioneer Hardware. There's a reason that families stay here for generations.
