I've been in Alhambra and never moved away since high school. It's an active community with lots of fun events and good restaurants. I've grown to love this city, especially it's not just for Asians. Nice cities are surrounded by it, and it's not too far from LA.

City of Alhambra is located south of Pasadena and North of Monterrey Park.
+ All the city surround Alhambra except in the east side is safe...
+ Most street is clean
+ Crime rate is very low similar to Monterey Park.
+ Housing price similar to Pasadena but far better public schools
+ Great variety of restaurant, main street mostly Western and valley mostly Chinese and Vietnamese.
+ Alhambra Act (City Bus) only cost 25 cents. 50 cents cheaper compare to Pasadena Art Bus.
+ Parking is not problematic like Pasadena, no street meter.
- Traffic near the freeway is horrible seven days a week during daytime.
- Not enough well know franchise business.
- Overnight parking in the street cost $$$
This is great city for just any aged group, however Alhambra might not be for most working family as it used to, housing price has jump 300% in 15 years. I doubt many people wage raise 300% unless they did something special. I do wish the city would do more to keep the housing more affordable but clearly, that is not their priority.Recommended for:

I am here SO often for the Asian food and plus it's on the way from work to home.
SGV - Alhambra, Monterey Park, San Gabriel and Rosemead... Chinese food central
Lots of fooooood! As for entertainment... if you are a foodie, then this is your entertainment. I remember the high school days in Hacienda Heights hanging in Tea Station and Honey Badger and such...
Exactly the same.
Only problem: Parking
