1250 Long Beach Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90021

The rent being $650 for a 2 bedroom seems SKETCHY.
Los Angeles apartment For Rent - 2 bedrooms (broken link)

How is this neighborhood for two single males in their early twenties? I am looking for a nice and safe place to live.

You found the exact opposite. This is a very bad area of Downtown/East L.A. For a two bedroom in a decent area, you are looking at a minimum of $1500.

Okay, thanks. Do you know of good locations in Long Beach that I can look at? I've heard downtown LB is being revitalized, is that true?

Downtown has. If you want to move to Long Beach, stick to Downtown or the beach. The rest is very hopscothy. Do want you did here and post the address. You definitely do not want 90805 or 90813.

425 E 3rd St, Long Beach, CA 90802?

For 1300 for 2bedrooms, seems a little bit more reasonable.

This is a nice area. You are downtown, walking distance to the Pike, Shoreline village and of course the Mall.

Would you recommend any other good zip codes, so when I go out to LA next week I can just go to those places?

90803? 90808?

Those two zip codes look okay. I would strongly recommend sticking to 90802 or 90803. But you should be okay with 90808.

LB breaks down generally like this:

90803 - beach (Belmont Shore / Heights, Naples, Peninsula, etc)
90802 - downtown
90807 - burbs (Bixby Knolls, etc)
90815 - burbs (East LB)

If you want walkable and nightlife you should live in 90803 or 90802 I would think.

90808 is a great area (mostly residential w/some apartments the closer you get to Long Beach City College and/or Long Beach State University). Prior to moving to SC..this was the zip code we lived in and we were less than 4 miles from the beach (grew up in LB)..you may also see some rentals in an area called Los Altos (this area is fine...just another area of Long Beach).

90840 is also another zip code you should check into (Long Beach State University area)....safe, several apartments by the univ., and even closer to the ocean.


Best of luck to you!
