burbank is safe after dark for woman. NOHO and many areas of the true valley are not. Also Burbank has a decent walkable nightlife...
I couldn't disagree more. Living in NoHo, i frequently take my dog out for brisk walks at night. There are plenty of other friendly dog and non-dog walkers. Take it from someone who actually lives in the neighborhood.

I can't thank you all enough. You have put this mother's mind at ease (at least a little). It's nice to hear from people who actually live there.

Actually the crime rate in Los Angeles as a whole is down below the national average (2010 stats). Just like any major city, just drill it into her to use common sense and beware of her surroundings and she'll be fine.

Two small blocks from the mall. Nice area, just down the street from Ventura blvd. I work less than a mile a way and used to live on hazeltine near riverside dr some twenty five years ago. again, it's a nice area but not sure any place would meet your budget requirement.

Actually, there is an apartment for rent there (in her price range).

I used to live in a house in Sherman Oaks off Greenleaf. I lived there with with my aunt and uncle and cousins. This was the early 2000s, so I don't know how much has changed, but I couldn't imagine it would be that drastic.... but when we were kids we used to play in the front yard and walk around the block like in any normal suburb. No problems at all. Most of my twenties (in the mid to late 2000s) I spent in Sherman Oaks in an apartment complex off Willis. Yes, it was expensive. I had a roommate and we were paying about 1000 for a 1 bedroom (it's L.A. - somebody's got to take the living room), but again - no problems.

Please take all the "the valley is ghetto" comments with a grain of salt. The valley can be patchy, where thirld world apartment complexes hold hands with million dollar homes, but it's not a phenomenon specific to the valley or even L.A.

Well as far as area is concerned, nice area. I'm guessing the building is an older one with very few amenities. In my opinion, I would rather choose an older apartment with few amenities in order to live in a good neighborhood.

Another thing you can do is call the LAPD van nuys division and give them the address and they'll be more than happy to tell you if the specific area is a trouble spot.
