I've seen lots of threads on this forum with people asking questions about what certain neighborhoods look like, or what a specific address might look like etc...

If you are looking for apartments, real estate, offices, etc.. in LA, the "street view" feature on Google Maps is very handy. I've recently been looking for office space in/around LA and found this a big timesaver. I can take a peek at the building and the surrounding area without having to drive there!

For example, if you want to see if an address is really a housing project in Watts without actually going there, you can do so. (see attached image)

Google Street View along with Google Earth and Microsoft Maps aerial views have made doing preliminary real estate research from the desk much easier. With very little effort you can "fly" over a property and then "drive" down the street and take a look.

There's also Tiger Census maps. Unfortunately, the census data are old, like maybe a decade, I forgot. But you can get demographic information (%owner occupied, % over 65, median income, etc.) mapped out.
