Valley State of Mind - Comments to Daily News Article
Hear, Hear! We moved to a North Hills
Mid-Century Modern with our 3 year old daughter from a cramped Westside
apartment last year. We have a large lot, a dozen fruit trees, pool and
a quiet neighborhood. It's so different than I'd imagined. Who knew?

Hi there! I lived in the SFV for 28 years. I grew up in Reseda and
lived there for 24 years, then bought a wonderful condo in Encino back
in 2001. In March '05, I sold my condo and moved to Washington state.
My husband who is in the Air Force got orders, otherwise, I wouldn't
have moved. Anyway, my mother who lives in Reseda, is always sending me
coupons and articles from the newspaper and she just sent me your
article! It literally made me cry. It is everything I have been trying
to say for the past 28 years. I absolutely love the valley and when I
lived there, I rarely went over the hill. Los Angeles is great but
everything I needed was in the valley (work, school, my family,
friends, great restaurants, awesome dive bars, parks, festivals, Candy
Cane lane, etc.). I hated going to Sunset when I wanted to party. It
was overcrowded and overpriced. I found so many awesome dive bars in
the valley (Fox Fire in Valley Village, The Rock in Tarzana) where I
had some really memorable nights. I went jogging everywhere (Woodley
Park, Wilbur Park, Reseda Park, Balboa Park, Ventura Blvd) and never
had any problems. I grew up in one of the most diverse places in the
United States and because of that, I am a very open minded individual.
I am grateful for the valley and I am so glad that I am not the only
one who sees it. Thanks for such a great article! I can't wait to move
back there some day. I really really miss it!
If you'd like to try some other good places to eat, go to "City Wok" in
Studio City for the best Chinese food, "Winnie's Sub Shop" in Reseda
for amazing subs (It's on Lindley, just south of Sherman Way), and
"Micks Sub Shop" in Encino (On Lindley just north of Ventura Blvd).
