"A very busy area of town"
I used to work in Glendale and it's always seemed to me to be a busy, sometimes dingy looking area. There are a multitude of businesses here, everything from restaurants, to doctor's offices, to retailers. Driving through is always a mess as there's always traffic and it doesn't seem to matter what time of day it is. There isn't an abundance of housing, mostly some large apartment buildings. There are few single family homes, but I personally can't imagine any family wanting to live here. It's just not a family friendly place in many areas. I just think of traffic and businesses and some I wouldn't even want my kids to see the signs on.
