To the OP: there aren't any. When you mentioned 'everyone walking down the street with everyone' I pictured New York City, with every ethnic group in the world hustling and bustling, riding public transit, bleeding into each other. The layout of Los Angeles just doesn't provide that. LA is a collection of very distinct neighborhoods with their own identities spread out over a massive area. JM1982 is right about weekday/daytime populations varying greatly from actual residents. People moving to LA choose where to live based on the character of the neighborhood rather than proximity to work. And if you want a poorer, working class neighborhood in LA it will certainly be almost monoracial Hispanic or black.

OP, if a rough neighborhood doesn't bother you, Long Beach would be perfect for you. Near the border of Cambodia town and Zaferia district it's a good mixture. Mexicans, Asians, Blacks, a few Whites, some Indians, gay, straight, bi and crazy. It's a "poorer" area so a lot of people do have to walk and take public transportation. It's by no means K-town but it doesn't have K-town prices either. There are a few dive bars and every night there are people pub crawling down Anaheim st. That area is a 7 min drive to DTLB and a 7 min drive to 2nd st(night time college bars)

There's Latino neighborhoods that approach 100% Latino populations, there's Asian neighborhoods that are around 70-75% Asian in SGV. There's basically nowhere in LA with a white non Latino population over 50%...maybe a few of the beach cities.....and no where with a greater than 50% African American population.

Most diverse places are probably Long Beach, Lakewood/Bellflower/Cerritos, Culver City, Gardena/Hawthorne/North Torrance, Downtown, K-Town, and Pasadena.
If you take it by zip code, there are a few that are over 50% in African-American/black population (as of 2010):

Here there are:

90008 (LA) -- 69.9%
90043 (LA) -- 65.9%
90047 (LA) -- 65.7%
90056 (unincorporated area of LA County known as Ladera Heights) -- 71.7%
90302 (right at 50%--Inglewood, North Central section)
90305 (Inglewood, E section)--87.7%

Note: none of these are considered LA's poorest areas. 90056 is WAYYYYY up the scale for income and home value.

Not sure but think that Carson 90746 is over 50% black.

Spot on for the areas mentioned above, though, as far as diversity.

However, some of the areas above may have this as a fleeting diversity--meaning that some people are biding their time until they can move to another place.

Although a byproduct of the postal service's provided zip codes as a handy guide for collecting data since they are not gerrymandered like political divisions the zip code lines run through neighborhoods. I think the demographics of the local high school would provide a more true picture of a community's diversity

Not in LAUSD areas, given that catchment areas are completely meaningless in LAUSD and have no relation to the actual demographics of the school.
