"Noisy doesn't even being to explain it!"
This neighborhood is in an ideal location. It is close to the 57 and 55 freeways and also offers various side street routes if those freeways are congested. It is walking distance to the grocery store, which is contained in a strip mall which has some great little restaurants. It is even super close to the great school high school, Esperanza. The houses are large and original and filled with friendly and social people. At the end of the day, though, none of these positive factors make up for the fact that it is right across the street from the train tracks! The train is so loud that if you are on the phone or watching tv, you have to stop your conversation or pause your show until the train passes. This is even with dual paned windows shut tight! You might not think that is such a big deal for the few times a day the Metro Link train passes by, but, that track is also used by cargo trains that run all the time. To make matters worse, there is an intersection right there that the trains have to honk their horn at. If the rumbling of the train does not startle you, that horn certainly will! And, for some reason, trains park in that area and idle. I'm not sure if they switch carriages there or what is going on, but, having a train idle outside of your home for an hour is not cool, no matter what the time of day!
