I wouldn't be too sure about Azusa.

Azusa is changing with it's effort adding density to its new Gold Line stations. But even new single family homes north of the 210. Home values will increase and rents will price out unwanted thugs to Barstow.

NE Azusa is pretty good near the colleges and downtown. The SW part of Azusa is not so good... wouldn't recommend that part with so many nicer areas close by.

Lower income renters near the Azusa train stations are going to get priced out hardcore. Azusa is one of the last afforable places to rent in the area.

Azusa is home to the Azusa 13 gang, some of its members were implicated in vicious hate crimes against African Americans a few years back.

Some parts of SGV are relatively safe, others not so much, just like with anything else.

If you mean east Los Angeles as in the area just east of downtown, then yes, it's ****ty and relatively dangerous. If you mean east Los Angeles as in everything from downtown to Pomona, then no. Sure there are crappy parts, but it's not inherently dangerous.

SGV for the most part is safe. When people talk about east LA, they're talking about the area east of downtown (Bpyle Heights, El Sereno, Lincoln Heights, etc.) which is poor and not that safe. It's not the worst part of LA though (crime)
