Pasadena Hills? You mean the foothills of Pasadena, because there is no town called "Pasadena Hills" it's just Pasadena.

I will post my favorite and least favorite, and then my reasons
Favorite
1. West Los Angeles - Safe region in the City of LA
2. Venice - Great beach, just stay out of the Oakwood neighborhood
3. Westchester - Great racially diversed neighborhood
4. Century City - Lovely district, with high-rise apartmen buildings
5. Brentwood - Heavily affluent. If I was a multi-millioniare, I would move here
Least Favorite
1. Anywhere in South Central Los Angeles - bad reputation of gang and racial violence
2. Anywhere in East Los Angeles - Very segregated, full of territorial gangs
3. The Jungles - District located within Crenshaw, heavily violent neighborhood, next to Watts.
4. Watts - Extensive history of gang violence, don't move there my people
5. Harbor Gateway - Another area racial-related gang violence

Favorite - Silver Lake (I love this are and I love the fact that I can walk to the store or coffee shop but if you're a single woman and you're into men, its not so great!)

Least favorite - Any city in the San Fernando Valley (not enough culture for me!)

It's very interesting that alot of you speak about cities you know nothing about (except for what you see on the news or read in the papers). FYI LAFan, The Jungle is NO WHERE near Watts, it really shows your ignorance that you speak of what you know nothing about, its really a shame.

No, I never said that, it's within Crenshaw. I'm saying the Jungles is the second highest area of gang violence in South LA, and Watts is the first.

Speaking of ignorance, you're the one's who's ignorant. I know my info when I look through those areas, so rrm, you get off my case!
