Hey all,

I'm new to Long Beach and am looking into working with a delivery app that does bike deliveries for some spare money. My main concern in regards to biking is high crime areas that I'll be an easy target in.

From what I understand, Long Beach is a patch work of "good" and "bad" areas. Being new, I've only seen a limited amount of the city. From what I saw the area around the courthouse/Queen Mary and the gay neighborhood look very nice. Traveling north on Long Beach Blvd. I noticed things started to look more industrial around I think 8th or 9th Street if I remember correctly. Further north from there (I think it was probably around 10th or 11th Street on Cedar. Might have been further north) was starting to look rough. That's all I've seen so far.

As you can see, I'm pretty new to the scene. By looking at a map I was thinking about making deliveries from Shoreline Dr. North up to 10th and the LA river west to Atlantic Ave. Atlantic is the center of the East Village which I heard can be ROUGH so I'm skeptical.

I need some experienced advice since I probably don't have a great idea for the area yet. I figure having my bike stolen is a realistic threat so a good lock goes without saying, but I'm concerned for my personal safety more than anything. It'd be nice to avoid getting harrassed, robbed, beat down, or worse.

So, what say you? Is this a bad idea? If anyone could provide descriptions of areas using streets/blocks it'd be easy for me to look at a map and see where you're talking about.

Thanks for the help. You may just be helping a new resident from getting his butt kicked.
