Rb blvd pretty much anywhere in that part is safe. Basically the closer it is to the beach cities, the safer and nicer it is. I would stay away from lawndale. I grew up near torrance, so i know that area pretty well.

I wouldn't live anywhere east of western avenue either.

Default I agree with the above

I agree with the above, for all of the same reasons. I have lived in the South Bay in four different houses over the last 55 plus years, so I too, know the area well.

Lived there my entire life and I concur. Stay west of Crenshaw Blvd if you can. There are tons of apartment buildings in West Torrance along Anza Ave, in the Emerald Ave/Spencer Street area, from Anza Ave on the west to Prairie Ave on the east. You may find a studio or one bedroom for up to 1400 in that area.

Lawndale is weird. It is just across Inglewood Ave from Redondo Beach and the difference in housing and atmosphere is like entering another world, a not good world. It's not the worst area and I've had plenty of friends who've had to live there but it's definitely not pretty or upscale by any means. I'd stick to West or North Torrance or North Redondo Beach in my searches for an apartment if you can swing it at all.

It is where your weird friends' scary friends go to score drugs to sell to the rich brats to the west. (No, really)

If you need to go lowball, you might go down PCH towards Lomita.
