What do you mean "bad parts" of LA? If the government and police did it's job, there would be no bad parts. You shouldn't have to avoid areas in your own country.

List one country that doesn't have bad areas... welcome to the real world.

Chatsworth, Northridge, Porter Ranch, and West Hills, although absolutely boring in my opinion, are nice areas that are north of the 101.
I beg to differ when you say Culver City is a nice area. Let me tell you this, if Sony Pictures ever pulls out of there, the place will die.

What a foolish statement. If the government and police did its job there would be no crime? How about if the criminals stopped committing crimes? That makes more sense.

Basically, there are bad and not so bad parts all over L.A. Even in nice neighborhoods you can find some bad pockets. I would recommend being more specific about addresses and even try to look up the street on Google Maps (StreetView). I've lived in Venice Beach, Long Beach, and near Pasadena. I could help you with those areas but am a bit more limited in the others. I would agree that you will likely enjoy the west side more than the other parts of town (as I did when I got to Venice).

Thanks!!
To answer this question is hard to do. LA is so huge and spread out it is really tough. You really need to come out and check it out. Even within good parts there are bad areas. It really is tough to say. I work as a field technician and have been all over LA. There are some areas that are famous such as compton and south cental LA that are bad,but what about areas that aren't so famous??
