Although Charles' pix are worth a thousand words, let me add a few dozen. This area is known as the Crenshaw District, and its demographic would be for the most part middle class African-American and hispanic, some Asian-Americans.

The historic housing is fairly nice because this area used to be more fashionable when downtown L.A. was same. The pluses are proximity to the Wilshire/Western metro-train station, about an 18-block walk (L.A.'s public transit system is more limited than most suspect so this is a plus,) to the L.A. Art Museum, Wiltern Theatre (music shows) and nice restaurants around Wilshire Blvd., L.A. proper's major east-west thoroughfare. It's not so far inland that the smog would be too bad.

The minuses add up depending upon your commuting distance to work, and if you regularly must be further east and south, where one might not find so many English speakers. This is sort of near where I grew up a half century ago, when it was a little different, i.e., all our neighbors from other countries spoke English.

Are there any other specifics about your move that forum posters here need to know in order to help you?

Thanks for the response, my husband has already secured a job, but I'm looking to work in the Los angeles school district not sure doing what anything but teaching or some type of social work that's what my degree is in. How is the job market, and most of the social work requires home visits is this safe especially for a transplant?

Here's the link to Los Angeles Unified School District / Employment
http://notebook.lausd.net/portal/pag..._schema=PTL_EP

You probably will have to show that you speak spanish or Korean, particularly in this area. I believe the current stat for all of LAUSD is 70% hispanic, and 50% coming from non-English-speaking households. My husband is a teacher in a downtown L.A. area, and the suggestion is that you probably can do more good teaching than wrangling with parents. Good luck.
