"Quiet Street below Airfield Flight Path"

Ferne Avenue is a short street (less than one-half mile) in a small neighborhood tucked between an office park and Cerritos Avenue, one of the busy east/west thoroughfares in Cypress. I work in a nearby office and enjoy walking through the neighborhood. The houses are older (built in the 1960s) but each house on the street is beautifully kept up and has a well-manicured yard. The majority of the houses are single story.

This is a very quiet and pleasant neighborhood. However, it is 1 mile from the Los Alamitos Army Airfield and right below the incoming flight path. In recent years incoming flight traffic has been light and noise hasn't been a problem, but it can be very noisy during a ramp-up of military activity (such as occurred after September 11, 2001).

The schools in the area are good, and Cerritos Elementary School is within walking distance. To the south of Ferne Avenue, what were once strawberry fields along nearby Katella Avenue are now office buildings. Some of the businesses in the area include Mitsbushi, Siemens and Yamaha. Because of all the offices, there are plenty of good places to go for lunch in the area. Major shopping areas and malls are located just a few miles away in neighboring Seal Beach and Cerritos. Also, Knotts Berry Farm Theme Park and Soak City Water Park are about 4 miles away in nearby Buena Park.

My only slight complaint about Ferne Avenue and the surrounding streets is that there are no curbside trees, and the sun can be relentless in Cypress. Locate about 8 miles from Seal Beach, the temperature in Cypress can be 20 degrees higher than along the coast. Most of the houses on Ferne Avenue have large front yards and relatively small backyards, so there isn’t much room for a pool. Chances are good that Ferne Avenue residents drive to nearby beaches to cool down during the warm months of summer.
