I went to this mall for the first time this past weekend and I just don't understand why it attracts so many ghetto types. Isn't Culver City supposed to be a upper middle class city and yet this mall just wreaks of ghettoness? I saw a bunch of guys wearing their pants so low that you could see their underwear and boy so many single mothers pushing their welfare babies throughout the mall. Long story short I will never be back as that is an invitation to be a crime statistic. Do you guys have positive things to say about this place?

Love how you just magically come to these conclusions just because you saw a female with a baby. That's clearly all the evidence you need to pin-point their marital and socioeconomic status.

Remember kids, when you assume, you make an A** out of you.

I don't know about that. This is an area I try to avoid.

Just because there are a lot of black people at the mall doesn't mean it's ghetto. I used to go there all the time when I lived in Playa del Rey and Marina del Rey. It attracts a lot of people from Ladera Heights right next door which is the black Beverly Hills, so don't assume they're on welfare. They're probably richer than you.

Ladera Heights is 71% black with a median household income of $117,925.
View Park-Windsor Hills is 86.5% black with a median household income of $81,214.

A lot of people from Westchester shop there as well which has a median household income of $77,473.

It used to be a dump, but Westfield has turned it around. I've never had any problems there. I'm usually one of the few white people there, but I'm not racist and I couldn't care less. I'm treated with respect by employees because I treat them with respect. The stores have nice clothes. The shoe stores there are great. The food court is good. I've never seen a fight or anything like that there. Literally the ONLY reason I can think of that you didn't enjoy your time there is because a lot of blacks and Latinos shop there. Culver City itself is only 48% white. It's nearly 24% Latino and nearly 11% black. Are they not allowed to shop at the closest mall to their home? Why can't the residents of Inglewood and Baldwin Hills (where incomes aren't that high) come to a mall in another city? They don't cause trouble just because they're minorities.

Don't feed the trolls.

Clearly this mall is not ghetto and to even suggest as much is more telling of the sheltered, bigoted person who would make that conclusion.

Clearly anywhere that isn't majority white MUST be full of ghetto poor people.

It's an upper middle class city because it is the line held by white folks while those east of LA Cienega fled in the 60's. Being a border town with no then new indoor malls on the other side of Los Angeles own Mason Dixon line made it the go to shopping area for those now segregated because no white folks were left.

Even after the smaller Crenshaw Baldwin Hills mall and other locations were built the refurbished medium sized mall located on major crossroads always drew a mixed clientele. With the hyper aggressive Culver City PD policing the place problems have been few over the past 40 years.

Now some still live a life afraid of their shadow and can try the Century City, Torrance or Santa Monica traffic but I doubt if that will shield them from Latinos and Black males wearing the dominant fashion of the past 20 years or shield them from women shopping without their husbands as if we were in Saudi Arabia

If you think it's ghetto now , you should of seen it back before it was Westfield and when it was called the Fox Hills Mall...before Culver City was known to be trendy or a cool place to live ..
