In Los Feliz: YES.
In East Hollywood or Koreatown: NO.

Some definite sketchiness as you move closer towards the 101; I'd avoid that if I could. As for the part of Ktown you're moving into, though: it is one of the safer, and IMO, has the most whites/transplants (if that's what you're seeking, of course) and best residential architecture. If you could swing it, I'd say go for it.

Beverly and St. Andrew's (one block from that address on Kenmore) is a pretty heavy drug and prostitution corner.

Hmm..not to nitpick, but the address posted by the OP is a whole mile from there (meaning you have to pass both Normandie *and* Western to get there; I doubt she'd be walking a mile), with Google Maps putting it as a 20-minute walk. Still, though, there are some definite QOL issues in and around that area, but nothing like those in relatively close Westlake or even some of the rougher parts of EHO.

BTW, for what it's worth, here's a photo taken maybe 3 weeks ago from the area in mention:

From the picture I am noticing some nice looking buildings. That is a plus

Also noticed fences surrounding the yards from one end of the block to the other end, or at least as far as I could see. That is a negative. You need to ask why are their fences.

Also noticed that the first building had a car in the yard. Is that a parking place because on the yard would seem to be somewhat low class. Negative to me

On the wall of that first building is a for rent sign posted between the 1st and 2nd floor. That is a negative because from its location it would mean that it is not taken down much. That would lead me to belive that people don't stay long, in that building at least.

On the second building you will notice the multi colored flags. That leads me to believe that they are looking for tenents as well. Is this another building that people don't stay long in?

Not a lot of parking in the area, plenty of cars on the street. That is a negative.

The kind of cars parked. You have a work truck, a couple of vans, an suv and a pickup. I am thinking large families in small apartments. Why do you need a van unless you have lots of kids? Not that kids are a bad thing, I have 6. But then we don't live in a small apartment though. Kind of a negative to me because where will those kids be hanging out?

The grass between the street and the sidewalk is not kept up. Looks bad meaning that the city is not taking care of this part of town. Negative if you ask me. Maybe the building owner is supposed to take care of the grass. They are not doing it either, so still a negative.

Other than that everything looks great. Enjoy your new place.
