Parts of Hawthorn are fine, others arent. When I was in high school I had a summer job at the Thriftys (now Rite Aid) on 132nd and Hawthorn blvd. and it was a fairly nice area.

Vincent and Jules was robbed at the restaraunt on the northeast corner Hawthorn and I think Rosecrans by Honey Bunny and Gringo in Pulp Fiction.

As long as youre south of El Segundo Blvd and west of Western you should be okay.

The "Hawthorne Grill" of Pulp Fiction fame was actually Holly's back when I was child (I remember eating there), a Googie architecture landmark that unfortunately went the way of the bulldozer. It was located on the corner of Hawthorne Blvd. and 137th Street. There's some sort of auto parts store there now. There's still another similar place further North on Haw. Blvd. called Chips that has a similar 50s/60s feel to it.

Depending on when you were in HS, I may have met you in person if you worked at that Thrifty's...I used to frequent it a lot, esp. in the summer months to get ice cream. Today it isn't anything like it used to be - very seedy these days.

Far too many of those Googie places were torn down!
