Question Areas to avoid in Los Angeles?

Hello all,

I'm a new member and all, well, I'm in San Diego and lots of superstar NBA players have been hitting up a summer league in Los Angeles. They are playing in The Drew League, which play their games at Leon H. Washington park in their gym. I think the gym is in Watts,CA I usually avoid Los Angeles, but I might want to drive up there and check it out. My only concern is if that area is okay and safe...

Thanks.

As long as you don't go wandering around the neighborhood after night fall you should be good.

I would stick to the west side and mid-city/Wilshire. Avoid downtown, Hollywood (unless you like touristy stuff), the east side.

Downtown should not be included here. Downtown is much better nowadays. Anyone who doesn't like it has old conceptions and views. Now, many hip LA residents go downtown for eating; then again they always have...
The Pantry, Nickel Diner, Philippe's, I could go on.
Downtown is also a cool place for the architecture. Now, many people actually live in Downtown, as well.
Basically, any idea of downtown being a bad area are mostly garbage.

Avoid South Central LA, Watts, Inglewood, Compton, some parts of the valley.

It's like a French woman tourist who came to visit Soviet Union... she fell down into the sewer hole and when they pulled her out, she asked "Why didn't you put red flags around this hazard?" In reply, she heard: "Didn't you see red flags when you were crossing the border?"
