Tell us what Paramount means to you

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


Very low violent crime. Diverse neighborhoods, and very good schools (Paramount High School among the best). Can't think of any downsides except I live in an apartment building that has hardly any visitors parking and no street parking!
