I have a question about Culver City. I've read many posts with people saying stay east from Culver City and don't go west but east is closer to Baldwin Hills (aka The Jungle). I'm not a big fan of BH plus my ex boyfriend lives there.

So being closer to BH is a lot safer than Culver West? and what is this Studio Village area I'm seeing on google maps? I've never heard of that area before.

On this map I'm seeing more gangs closer to the east side than the west of Culver City.

Thanks

neither extremes of culver are very nice, east or west. however, i would rather live in the eastern portion of culver city as you'd be further from the projects (mar vista gardens) and closer to the downtown area, arts district and helms bakery.

stay in the middle!

For some reason I'd rather live at the west end of culver city becuase you're really close to mar vista and venice. sure the gardens are there but the blocks really depend. for example I have friends who live in oakwood venice and it's not the old oakwood. there's still an element of danger there but it's much better

I agree. I just realised the Italian restaurant I went to a couple years back was in Mars Vista and not Culver City and I remember really liking the area.

Im being that opposite of argumentive...just curious...i thought the jungles were considered baldwin villiage, not baldwin hills...thought the hills were the expensive area, and the jungles were below that(so to speak)

Yeah I think you're right actually.

Here's where you ought to try to live -
- west of City Hall
- east of Sawtelle
- south of Culver
with a few exceptions

Which is far enough away from Mar Vista Gardens. The Arts District and Helms Bakery area is so overrated...the housing stock around there, on Ince and Higuera and such, is not very nice. Furthermore, there is real industrial feel on Jefferson, and even on Washington, east of that area. Culver City may be its own municipality and has a good school district, but it has traditionally been a working class enclave surrounded by LA zip codes. Studio Village, IIRC, is a very Brady Bunch looking complex of owned townhomes in a convenient location.
