The Wrigley neighborhood is a nice neighborhood. It has lots of charm and character and it is nicely situation to the 710 Freeway and 405 Freeway, which can be a big plus if you have to get on both of those freeways to get to work.
I feel it has a mixed and somewhat eclectic feel to it. The people are very mixed and the neighborhood also changes depending on where in Wrigley you decide to buy. I have sold several houses in that neighborhood and my clients are quite happy with their purchase.
Definitely the homes and neighborhood improves when you keep moving North beyond 21street and beyond Willow.
Homes are also affordable. And tend to increase in value substantially if you make some nice improvements with the years you spend there.
If you have any questions or want more info, give me a call and or visiting my website.
