Most people will advise you avoid living in NW Pasadena, which is loosely defined as North of the 210 and WEST of Lake Avenue and EAST of the Rose Bowl.

The east end of the city is very safe, not sketchy, and more residential.
The far west part of the city (west of rose bowl, arroyo areas) are very pricey and residential.
The entire southern part of the city (basically south of Del Mar Blvd) is quite nice, and residential.
The closer you are to the 210, the worse it is in almost all parts of the city.

For a young, single person, I'd live in Old Town Pasadena in a condo... this area is along Colorado Blvd on the West end of the city... or in the South Lake Ave/ Caltech area.

As far as parking, there is no overnight parking on the streets. So cars must be garaged or driveway'd. There may be some special parking districts where you can get an overnight permit.. not sure about this, though. Because of the parking rules, all apartments and condos are required to have a minimum number of parking spots for residents.
Overnight Parking:

There are some areas in the 91107 zip code (Southeast Pasadena) not officially incorporated in the city of Pasadena (I think the city is actually East Pasadena) where you can park overnight. Example: the intersection of Rose Villa and Berkeley. The street pavement will change color slightly and the road signs' background will change in color. I've parked overnight in this area countless times without receiving a ticket and the neighbors all confirmed overnight parking is allowed (you'll see plenty parked overnight here.)

This is true. Only the areas within the city have these parking restrictions. Unincorporated areas such as Altadena and East Pasadena do not have these restrictions. (BTW - there is no city named East Pasadena. East Pas just describes an area ... and only the south portion of east Pasadena is unincorporated... Pasadena address but county services and representation... confusing, I know)
