Where in the Los Angeles area should I look for an older home (before 1930?) to buy. My wife and i are retired and she likes to garden. I like access to public botanical gardens, art museums and good libraries. Have car but hate driving.

It's either Arcadia or Pasadena.

Pasadena has the museums and public transit.

Arcadia has the arboretum and safety.

pasadena, but its pricey. mid-city, but its "transitioning". highland park, best bang for your buck. the all inclusive "bang". like bang bang. HLP might have the wider choice for pre 30's house also. for pre 30's house you have to look closer to LA (central), but its not always the safest. whats your budget?

Hancock Park or south around that area you'll find beautiful pre 1930s homes on larger lots. I think the location to the many art museums, libraries, gardens can be done by public transit.
