Thanks for the offer, but she won't talk to anyone in LA she doesn't know. She pretty business minded, and I am sure she will check out all the places she sees. I am gonna continue to do all the research I am learning to do with City Data and LAPD. I am sure between the two of us with the Lord's help we will find that right spot. It just takes lots of work and research. I am learning alot about a lot of areas. I think we need to continue to look around for other options. Again, thanks

koreatown is crowded and gritty/dirty, but not a slum. as the name implies, there are lots of koreans there, as well as many hispanics. USC students and other young people also find it desirable for the same reason that your daughter is looking there: it's cheap by LA standards.

i know the intersection of 3rd and manhattan. it's west of western avenue, so that means it's on the better side of koreatown, but things can change block-by-block in that part of the city. it would take someone with more intimate knowledge of the area than i to say whether that's a good block or a bad one.

another good source of safety information is the local police division station. the desk officer can usually say, with great specificity, if a street or even a particular building is safe.

call here to ask about the address you have in mind:
LAPD, Wilshire Division
4861 West Venice
Los Angeles, CA 90019
213-473-0476 Voice
213-485-2112 TDD/TTY

its not too bad at all, its in the northern part of K town, but on the edge with the nicer areas to the west. a quick check on mapquests' aerial view will show you that it is mostly apts, which is typical of the area, but further west along 6th and 3rd are very nice homes. old homes that are really a sight to see all the way over to highland.
but this area is relatively safe. if she were to go further south and further east deeper into K-town she would be bordering Mac park which is the PITTS!!!!
do an aerial view of this area thru Mapquest and get down to the 2 level zoom. you will see the layout of the land. but this by no means does it justice.
when i have to go into HllyWd from Ktown or DTown i drive along 6th because of the nice houses. its no too bad moms.

What do you mean further east deeper into K-town? Do you mean from 3rd street on Manhattan Place farther away from Wilshire street. I am a little confused. So is 3rd street and Manhattan the pitts? Or is it fairly safe?

the farther east one goes, the less safe/clean/comfortable the neighborhood becomes. beyond koreatown, to the east, you get into REALLY icky territory. that's what he means. the address in question is on the western edge.

wilshire blvd. is an east-west thoroughfare. third street (also E-W) is .75-1 mile north of wilshire. what, in your mind, is the relevance of wilshire?

I think Wilshire and 3rd street run paralle and Manhattan run the opposite way and connects the two. I was asking if the farther you get from Wilshire going toward 3rd street does the area get worse. Am I making sense or do I have to be there to understand, this is the way it looks on the map. Sorry to sound so confused. Bottom line is the safety of S. Manhattan and 3rd Street. I have been trying to contact LAPD, but that is hard. They don't answer the phone in that district. Maybe I have been looking at this area to long and beginning to bore everyone, sorry. Maybe it's time to move along.

no, koreatown doesn't get worse north of wilshire. if i had to live there, i would rather be north of wilshire than south of it. however, that doesn't mean that any block north of wilshire will be a good one.

yes thanks Katenik, the further east and south of 3RD and MANHATTAN the worse it gets, paricularly over by the PARK. that is tha PITTS.

ok i just re read my post and i was pretty clear. all i could say now is go to mapquest.com and check out an aerial view of the area. good luck.
