"I hate to give this secret away"
Okay, this street makes me happy. I can use it to ninja my way into downtown without going through the hassle on Broadway/Long Beach Boulevard/PCH etc. Coming off the 710, if you follow the split to the left and exit onto the right, you'll bypass a lot of the headaches getting into the area. Vibe-wise, I dunno. It seems like a fairly well off neighborhood, but the LBC obsession with shabby chic makes it hard to tell dirty and trashy from chic. Some of the houses CAN'T be cheap, but it's not really my style.
