Tell us what Huntington Park means to you

  • What makes this a good place to live? What are the downsides?


10yrs living in HP thanks to God with out a problem. However the economy is driving crime up. I see people more active at night. TEENS. Which means that sooner or later there will be problems. I hope not. I think HP PD has done a great job as of today.

I grew up on Hollenbeck St near the railroad tracks. It sounds weird but I kind of miss hearing the train pass by in the night as I went to sleep. I remember doing "mandados" with my Dad as he was speeding down Randolph trying to beat the train to avoid sitting in traffic as it passed by. HP will always be the same. A lot of hardworking families just trying to make ends meet and hopefully able to give their children an opportunity to succeed. HP has it's share of violence but nowhere near as much as it's surrounding neighbors like Maywood, Bell Gardens, and South Gate. A lot of good memories as well as sad ones.

I lived at Arbutus St. 'xing Gage avenue a few years, at the begining '90s. Main atraction was Pacific blvd.

Even I took my marriage pictures in the City Hall, a colonial building style with beautiful gardens.

Friendly people left me nice mementos. It seems that time stop in this city like in any small town and nobody wants to express ideas or comments; maybe they're still reading "La Opinion".

Conclusion: It's a nice immigrant community.
