Burbank local government responses are horrible. The landlord of my old building has turned this bldg. into a boarding house. The effect on Burbank will be terrible.
All of what was going on was sent to city officals when they could have done something but choose not to act.
I assume all of Burbank will suffer higher crime rates and the police will have to deal with entrenched hostiles in what was an old but peaceful neighborhood once. This is the real crime, government that does nothing to help nd turns its back on people who are trying to live decently.k
Burbank has it's own schools, police and fire departments and city services. Response times are excellent. Parks, streets, sidewalks and parkway trees are nicely maintained. This gives the residents a high quality of life.
too much 5-0
pull you over for no reason
but its a very beutiful place
With all the railroads and the 5 fwy, its like the LA version of Fontana.
I was born and raised in Burbank. The upside is a very good quality of life. The downside is high housing costs and the lack of diversity. I moved to the high desert so I could raise my family with the same small town values that existed when I was growing up.
Burbank has the feel of a small bedroom community and I have wonderful memories living there. However, with Lockheed gone, change in demographics, a more left leaning political landscape. All Burbank has left is remnants of the past., Burbank is no longer the place I want my kids to grow up and I have moved out. California is a mess.
Burbank's a great place to live. There are so many people that were born here and still live here. I see people I know everywhere - that small town feeling. Great schools, low crime rate. Great restaurants and shopping. The AMC Theatre is one of the busiest in the nation, that's because everyone comes to Burbank to play. Your close to Downtown LA, Dodger Stadium, the LA Zoo, Universal Studios. And we have the beautiful mountains to look at and hike in. LOVE IT HERE!
Burbank is a good place to live becasue its safe. the downside of living in Burbank is that its really strict.
Grew up in Burbank in the late 40's thru early 60's. It was the epitome of Mom and Apple Pie>>>Ozzie and Harriet.........etc. Going to the Bazaars at St. Finbar's..........being in the Ground Observer Corps and watching for enemy aircraft from the roof of the City Hall on Sundays. Walking across the pipe over the L.A. River up into the undeveloped section of Forest Lawn. Renting horses from stables like Ride-A-While and going across the horse bridge into the hills for hours...........it was a magical place and time to grow up. Saw my first concert at The Olive Rec. Center....Fats Domino!!Always love ya' Burbank!!
Burbank is not a good place to live..too expensive and you really get nothing for it..I moved to Texas and I love it.
To clarify, The Times has requested an electronic data feed of crime reports, which are public record, and has not yet received one from Burbank. In many jurisdictions, commercial services contract to place crime data on a public facing site. While there are crime maps available for numerous areas, the feeds that have been used to build them have not been made available to us. In many instances, those sites are using proprietary software to process the public data. With the LAPD, for example, The Times uncovered numerous issues with the map made available to the public by their previous vendor. We now receive a date feed directly from the department. Once we got the feed, we manually processed thousands of addresses that commercial mapping programs failed to locate. Our hope is to do the same for Burbank and the rest of the jurisdictions in L.A. County.
Correction to LA Times - Burbank, Glendale, Pasadena and other surrounding cities do provide their crime data in a useable format. Have you seen Crimemapping.com? Isn't it misleading to say these cities aren't?
It is not a good place to live. My apt., if not as expensive as some because it is soooo hot. That the Board of Health puts up with this is disgusting. T he bldg is becoming a slum and no one give a damn. Things are falling apart. Rent is not that cheap. Eveyone is entitled to ventilation,heat and hot water. Not only is the water a trickle because of lack of water in this area but even though the Board of Health said the water was hot enough, its not. They seem to think "poor landlord" in these tough times = not poor tenant who really is being taken advantage of. Health is at risk here and just like all the stuff that goes on in LA, people think they can brainwash you just be talking.
God forbid you talk back - must be crazy or just a crackpot.
Does anyone know that one small piece of land that is owned by Burbank but is West of Clybourn? When did that annex to Burbank and why? The OLD old maps of "Providencia" AKA Burbank show that piece being apart of NoHo/City of LA.
