Hello,

I have just received a job in LA (Santa Monica), and my wife & I will be moving from India to the US. I hope not to offend anyone, but is there an area where there is more of an Indian population? To help us settle here, as it will be our home, it might make things easier for us.

Thank you for your time.

Lots of Indian’s located in Torrance, particularly in the area zoned to West High School. There’s a strip mall on Hawthorne Bl. just north of Torrance Bl. That has an Indian store.

It’s about an hour rush hour commute to Santa Monica.

This is true. This is my hometown and I also attended West High School back in the late 60's. It has changed considerably. I drive down Anza Street which is where a lot of apartments are. I see the women from India walking around in their beautiful Sari's. I no longer recognize my high school and it is difficult to watch because there are so few Caucasians anymore attending the high school. I am just being honest.

I belong to several groups online (Facebook) for West High Alumni. It's just sad to see how drastically it has changed. My nephew who is half Hispanic/White went to WHS and graduated in 2012. All his friends are actually from different ethnic groups but no Non-Hispanic Whites.

To the OP - I had to be honest here but I mean no disrespect.

I can not answer your question factually but I have spent time in L.A. a few times in the past 5 or so years: there are many areas that have large Indian population. What comes to mind right away and not far from Santa Monica is Westwood or areas near Westwood.

Very bold of you two being honest and up front. I'm not offended by either. It's natural for ethnic groups to migrate towards each other. Doesn't mean that they are racist despite what Don Lemon says
