Used Google street view
I will be relocating to Long beach California this summer and am currently searching for an apartment.
The problem is I have never been to long beach and have no idea what part of town would be best.
Thankfully we have google. I can find apartment complexes then cross reference their addresses on google maps and street view. I can see which neighborhoods have chain link around their yards and which have expansive lawns… always an indicator of the neighborhood’s priorities 🙂
