Hi Everyone,
I'm moving to Highland Park this summer from Ventura County with my fiance. He's black and I'm Hispanic. We're renting for now because I found out I was pregnant a week after he purposed and felt quite rushed to move. To make a long story short, I really didn't research the area. I was looking for something that had a 2 car garage for a studio, and allowed a fairly large dog.@ Los Feliz and Silver Lake, but there was nothing available. I'm due in a couple months. I'm now freaking out now because I've been reading scary articles about hate crimes against blacks, robberies, grand theft, homicides etc. in Highland Park. Is it that bad???????//// Please help!

Homicide in Highland Park is lower than LA average, but robbery is higher. If I was in your situation, I would just see what the situation feels like at first, and if it isn't working out, start looking at least a couple of months before your lease is up to find a different neighborhood.

This article sums up the Highland Park gang situation well, if a bit overdramatically:
