They Really Do Walk With Their Chins Higher Up in Downey

Mark Jimenez

I’m an IT engineer. I grew up in Long Beach, but I live in Downey. I wanted to buy a house that was close to the Metro within my budget, and I found it in Downey. They say that Downey is the “Latino Beverly Hills.” Downey residents really do walk with their chins higher than anyone else in the area.
