Sepulveda pretty much cuts an path east to west across Torrance, it doesn't turn and head north until Redondo. Not a good marker for staying out of Harbor Gateway since it goes right through it.
Look at zip codes 90503, 90505 and 90501 as long as you are west of Western.

Tiny strip between Western and Normandie is actually the city of LA. The strip between Normandie and Figueroa more or less I believe is unincorporated LA County. Not everything in this strip is automatically horrible though, pockets of good and bad. Plaza Del Amo I would file under bad.

Generally just east of Crenshaw and west are good areas of Torrance. Old Torrance is great if it's your cup of tea. The further west you go, the nicer and pricier it gets. Torrance Beach is of course...awesome.

A quick and dirty way to tell if neighborhoods are good or not...just look at the lawns. If they are brown, people are parked on their lawns or you see mattresses...not the best area.

Normandie Ave area is not a good area at all and has a big gang problem along with spill over from the Harbor Gateway gang wars of recent years. It's along the railroad tracks, lots of heavy industrial buildings, low income apartments, cheaper houses on streets that would make you uneasy. I would not buy a house if I could help it in that area. Stay west of Western Ave , west of Crenshaw really.
