"Dull Residential Neighborhood"

Vineyard is a lower middle-class neighborhood on the western end of Glendale near Griffith Park. It is just south of the Ventura Freeway. There are a mix of older Ranch style homes and boxy apartment buildings built on the narrow lots that used to hold more classic homes in the neighborhood’s earlier manifestations. In some of the neighborhood’s southern portions there are some new constructions, mostly of pastel colored condos.

This is largely a residential neighborhood, with more than a tenth of Glendale’s population living here. On the eastern end of the neighborhood is Columbus Elementary School, a solid though not a great school by Glendale standards.

San Fernando Road, that forms the western border of the neighborhood, is mostly an industrial area filled with warehouses and office buildings. The nicest lane is W. Broadway at the neighborhood’s southern edge—it is leafy and pleasant. Unfortunately, other than the Armenian Dance Center, there is not much all that interesting going on W. Broadway, unless you think old folks homes and law offices are interesting. There is also a childcare center, but overall not much else.

Overall, this is a pretty dull neighborhood by Glendale standards. There are, however, some nice cozy houses and newer apartments in some nooks so it might be just right for someone looking for a less expensive area to live. (Average rents are around $1,100.)
