I don't have maps to refer you to, but I used to live not far from that area and I would not choose that neighborhood unless you are looking for adventure. Drive around the area and you will notice that a large fraction of the businesses, apartment houses and homes are protected by iron bars and fences. There's a reason for that.

I think this shows that 2-miles is a LARGE area. Parts of downtown (skid row) and areas on the outskirts of downtown are sketchy. But plenty of neighborhoods in downtown LA are considered relatively safe and even up and coming (South Park, Little Tokyo, etc). Lots of people with means to live plenty of other places have been moving in over the past three years.

Thanks for the tool...it is pretty interesting.

It's a nice area, if you stay closer to Los Felis than Hollywood Blvd. I lived on Edgemnot in 1965 and it was lovely. Almost always headed for Los Felis, though. Not likely to be real cheap, though.
