Thank you.

In my personal opinion...

I agree and know these two better. And yes, you've got your Laderas in the right order. Lower Ladera has newer, bigger houses and may have circular driveways. Old Ladera is basically stucco ranch houses, no different from those in Rancho Park, Culver City or many flat parts of the SFV.

Having been away from LA for a while, I know that black professionals were the dominant demographic in View Park, Baldwin Hills and Windsor Hills. Are there any whites or other races (Asian, Hispanic) that are currently buying into those areas?

Upper Ladera
View Park
Lower Ladera
Windsor Hills
Old Ladera & Baldwin Hills (about the same)

What some do not know is that VIEW PARK is one of the most well kept secrets of LA, and has some of the most breath-taking views in the entire city of Los Angeles. The location is 10 minutes from down town, LAX, the Marina, beach, West LA, Bev Hills, Westwood, etc. View Park also offer more land than Ladera with very large lots/back yards.

The homes are classic and have much character, and range from about mid $400's to over a Mil.

What streets are seen as "Old Ladera?" I've only heard upper and lower. And I also thought upper was nicer, maybe because of the folks I know who live there.

The homes in Lower Ladera are nicer in my opinion.

Old Ladera is the little area east of La Cienega and south of Slauson.

It's been quite a while, but I grew up in "the Dons" and it was very nice. Up the hill from us was Ike and Tina Turner.

Very nice area!

The demo is about 70% AA, and 30% white, Asians and Hispanic, but that number is changing fast due to whites buying into the area. I think they see that the area is prime, centrally located, beautiful views, and homes, the value is there, and they are getting more bang for their bucks.

The whites that moved away 40 years ago are now coming back (fast!)

No they're not. I love these areas. I don't think whites are moving in that fast. I think they will remain african american for a long time.

My day-to-day observation is that the area remains predominantly AA, and there has not been a mad rush of white people moving in.

It is still predominately Black, but growing up there 40 years ago the only white folk that I knew by name were school teachers and now it is not strange to see actual white people in the local shops and walking on the streest. While 40 years ago only half of the kids who lived in the Dons went to the local schools, Hillcrest Elementary in the Jungle, Audubon Jr High to Dorsey the real test will be if any of the kids of the white folk moving in end up at Dorsey High
