Northridge, CA

Pluses:  Northridge is actually part of Los Angeles rather than a separate municipality, just like most communities in the San Fernando Valley. It's a middle to upper middle class suburb with attractive residential neighborhoods, California State University at Northridge, very convenient shopping at the large Northridge Mall and elsewhere, a reasonable selection of restaurants, industry, and better-than-average schools. And, you can usually find parking when you go shopping or out to eat. It was NOT the location of the Northridge earthquake of 1994. It was discovered later that the actual epicenter was just south of Northridge in Reseda, but by then the name had already stuck. Northridge did, however, sustain the most damage.

Minuses:  Traffic, just like the rest of S. CA. It's about 25 mi. to downtown L.A., so it's quite a commute if you work downtown. Housing is expensive.

A good place to...  Live and rear children.
