I just learned in an International Business course that in some asian countries eye contact is avoided; until then I was thinking that most of my neighbors were just jerks. Most of my extended neighbors are still very snooty, just visit the grocery store, gas station, gym and so on. Smile people, life is great. Walnut is nice overall, heavy police presence at night, the banks and stores have no bullet proof glass, lol. There are also wide bicycle lanes and cool trails. Let me state again that I loooove the cycling here. Oh and no street parking. I give Walnut 8.5/10 a solid B
I am from Europe and I love LA and the most beautiful neighborhood for me is Walnut. I would like to live here sometimes when I am older and I want to know whether Walnut is a safe and quiet neighborhood.
Thank you in advance for your answer.
Just because Walnut is 56.2% Asian (80%? exaggerate much?) doesn't mean that it's not diverse. Taiwanese, Chinese and Filipino cultures are diverse... and Walnut is roughly as white and Mexican-American as any of the Asian ethnicities. Just go to the Donut Tree and observe the local retirees and tell me it's not diverse.
Also, I administer the Facebook Walnut page:
Walnut is a nice community, but it is no longer diverse considering the fact that the population is over 80% Asian.
Diversity, Diversity, that is what you will find in the United States and that is exactly what Walnut means to me. It is refreshing to see all Americans living side by side enjoying life and the beauty of Walnut.
Walnut is a great little enclave just 20 minutes from downtown with convenient access to the OC. Charlie Beck lives out here, I believe. Though it can get a little hot in the summer, there is little to no traffic, the neighborhoods are safe and schools are fantastic.
