Just curious to anyone that is familiar with the area where the 5 & 110 freeways meet. How safe is the area late at night?

I'm talking about the opposite side of the freeway from Dodger Stadium/Elysian Park. Southeast of the freeways.

It's hard to tell what the area is like from Google maps. I'm mainly talking about Lacy Street, Artesian Street, Humboldt St, Ave. 26, etc.. Anyone know where I'm talking about???

I just want to know what the area is like and how safe it is. Walking around late, parking cars etc. I plan to be going down to that area sometime soon...

Thanks in advance!

-J.

Looks industrial but a lot of the homes a couple blocks east of there have bars on the windows.

It is a mix of industrial, old homes and chic new lofts and condos. The North Central Animal Shelter is located on Lacey Street right next to the 110/Avenue 26 onramp. Probably mostly deserted at night.

The area EAST of the 110 Freeway and SOUTH of the 5 Freeway includes the "Cornfield Park" which is an old railyard turned into a park a few years ago. It's a 32-acre parcel which includes walking trails and bike paths. Pretty quiet even during the day there. At night I am sure its closed.

It's a little bit SOUTH of the area you are referring to but Lincoln Heights is immediately EAST of the 5 Freeway and 1-mile SOUTH of the 110 Freeway.

I had no idea there is a TV series set in Lincoln Heights. Not sure if it is still on the air but it was a few years ago:

There's a few projects in the area but nothing I'd be scared to walk by at night.

I'm not sure if that would be Lincoln Hts or Glassell Park but near the river is mostly industry except the new parks. On the other side of San Fernando Rd is residential but gang activity was common at one time. I don't think the area would be considered safe but there are much worst areas in Los Angeles. The Gold Line goes through the area btw.

It's still on here in GA SoCal35 but as much as I loved my 8 years in LA, I can't get into watching Lincoln Heights for some reason.
