What boundaries are you referring to? Crenshaw Blvd runs a very long way(from Wilshire all the way into the hills of Palos Verdes)

Crenshaw has some VERY rough areas such as Baldwin Village, also known as "The Jungle", but overall the area is mainly middle-class.

really? are you talking about the stretch along crenshaw, between jefferson park and inglewood? that's pretty much all ghetto, with a few nice streets tucked in if you know where to find them.

not incidentally, no one i know considers the jungle a part of the crenshaw district...despite what wikipedia says.

I'm talking about the area that's around Stocker St and Crenshaw BLVD, Slauson Ave. and Crenshaw BLVD, and Imperial Hwy and CrenshawBLVD.

Since I am most familiar with Crenshaw into Inglewood, I'll limit my response to that stretch: First of all, the Jungle does not now nor has it EVER been on Crenshaw. From Wilshire to Country Club, Crenshaw on the east in Koreatown and Hancock Park on the west; from Country Club to the 10, Crenshaw does a wonderful job of hiding very affluent homes (Windsor Square, Victoria Square and Wellington Square); on Crenshaw itself through that stretch and on through Jefferson it can be very rough and dirty. After Jefferson it cleans up as it goes into the retail district and the most influencial black neighborhoods in Los Angeles: Leimert Park. Unfortunately, just before Slauson all the way to Florence is the exact opposite: roughest, dirtiest parts of Crenshaw-Hyde Park. After Florence you're in Inglewood and it becomes a clean nice neighborhood again.

this is very accurate. (out of reps for you, but +2 in spirit.)

So is Crenshaw/Imperial a slum? Also, is Crenshaw/Stocker St. a slum? I'm wondering because Stocker's my last name.
