Yes, it's slightly considered a bad area. Not too bad though. East of Bixby park is a much much better area, which is Bluff Heights, then Belmont Heights/Shores. The area is not the greatest, but you'd be surrounded by other GREAT areas and the lively downtown as well. If I was single, I'd move there no problem.

When you get there, definitely check out "The Pizza Place and Garden Cafe." It is right on the corner of Falcon and Broadway.

Great pasta and salads.

That's a decent area. three blocks away is the beach. btw, don't ask questions like this- long beach is an entire city. there are many different neighborhoods. yyour question is like asking- I'm moving to san diego- is this a bad area? you see what I mean? I live three blocks from that location on ocean bl., right acrpas from the beac. it is app. three miles fromthe orange county border. this is also a gay neighborhood, so if u aare open minded reminded, you should b fine.

Yeah, good decent area.... any time you get close to the beach, you really can't go wrong.

Long Beach, you can't go wrong if you stay downtown, south or east... avoid the western parts and the northern parts.

Are you going to be using street for parking? If you will have a designated parking space, covered or not, that would be a huge plus. Street parking is very dicey especially when you get close to the high traffic areas which your location is close to.
