I am originally from Palm Springs but moved to Riverside for about two years and I am now planning on attending Cal State Dominguez Hills. I would like to know what areas that aren't too far would be good to rent an apartment. Right now my max for rent would be $1000.

I've heard to stay away from Harbor Gateway and was looking at a few places in West Carson near Torrance. What are the areas like Gardena, Lawdale, Carson, Hawthorne like? Input would be very helpful and greatly appreciated.

$1000 is plenty to get a studio apt in Torrance. Stay away from Gardena. There doesn't seem to be a lot of single dwelling housing in Carson. Hawthorne is shady in parts.

Do you have a car? I would consider Long Beach. It's a great city and $1000 could even get you a place close to the water.

Not all of Gardena. Better within city limits (90249 and 90247 generally) than within the areas of the 90248 zip code that are actually LA city or unincorporated LA county, and better south and west than north and east.

North Torrance and adjacent parts of Gardena. You can find a nice, small, clean, dated 1bd/ba apartment under $1k in that area.
