What neighborhoods are most affordable? From East LA, SE Los Angeles, NE Los Angeles?

1. Hazard
2. City Terrace

And how would you compare East Los Angeles to Santa Ana and those areas?

East LA is less dense than Santa Ana. Less diverse too.

I'd think the only fun things to do, in order, are:
1) eat Mexican food
2) look for filming locations from Blood In, Blood Out
3) leave East LA

LoL. Thank you for the response.

Less dense, hmmm wow, then Santa Ana must be real dense because I remember I was on whittier in the Montebello area and I remember how dense the population was and all hispanic of course not one black or white person in sight. Im sure one appears now and then though LOL. Anyway Im comfortable in these sides of town.

*I noticed the narrow and curvey roads in the neighborhoods. Are you familiar with East LA? It must be tricky driving around up in the neighborhoods. I noticed you said eat mexican food what places would you suggest? I know theres this one taco stand off of Hazard Ave. and Dozier. I know that alot of people like Northeast LA too. I know that Montecito Heights is a real nice location in the East Los area but its not a bad neighborhood and Im sure there are some parts that are in East LA that are better than others even though looks may be decieving. [Which is interesting because I noticed that alot of the worst parts of town have well taken care of properties and good structured homes LOL.]

How would you break down and compare the different sections of East, Southeast, and Northeast LA ?

Wow, I was wrong, East LA is quite a bit more dense than Santa Ana (16K/sqmi to 11K/sq mi). Both areas feel like they have a lot of people in a small area, in parts.

I'm not terribly familiar with East LA, I know the curvy roads, but a lot of areas in So. CA have them, and they aren't that big a deal. I wouldn't know how to properly break it down either, I've only been there as a visitor.

I don't remember any names of places to eat there, but Mexican food is abundant and cheap, but typically hay que ordenar en espaƱol, however.

OK. Here are a couple of things, but, they don't happen every day, so you'll have to check ahead.

Self-Help Graphics is a community art center that offers art lessons and lessons in printmaking. It especially tries to advance new Latino art. It also sometimes holds exhibitions.

Bred Street Shul is an impressive old Jewish temple and school that's being renovated as a community center. It holds open houses from time to time.

A company called LA River Expeditions is trying to put together the permits to let you raft the LA river. They might be doing tours later this year.

There are often mariachi bands at Mariachi Plaza.

It is a bit hipster, but, Eastide Luv is a decent bar.

Casa 0101 is a theater and a theater school. It is a good place to take an acting class.

Good to read about the part of the other side of East LA that alot of people wouldnt even think exist. Could you give me your defintion of a hipster. To me that means someone thats kinda punk rockish and into the arts, or something along those lines.

el tepeyac isnt really that great. you can find better fare in most of the trucks around the east side.
as for what its like. east LA or the east side is varied. you have east LA proper (east of lorena st, or is it indiana?) you have boyle heights which is just east of the river(a north and a south part). you have el sereno (very hilly), you have lincoln heights, montecito (which isnt as much eastside as it used to be), city terrace. lots of areas. then you have areas like montebello or mntry park that are east of east LA and some times considered east LA.
as for most affordable? i think they all are. it just depends on the area and quality of the neighbrohood. i would say that that east la proper might be cheaper than Byl heights, and thats because of the changes occuring in BH. it is being [slightly] gentrified and a lot of the older homes are being bought and returned to their former glory. its still not a 90's silver lake tho...
you can live in hazard, right by the projects. or up in city terrace. city terrace has nicer homes in the hills, with great views.
el sereno would be just as nice. more diverse and nicer (see hillside village). "east la" is varied.
