As you all know, I'm not LA. But that doesn't stop me from posting in the LA forums because I DO want to visit someday. I currently came to my senses last year and realized that LA is NOT the business and not the place I want to live in my 20s like other lost young souls. Thanks to City-Data and the news. I just want to visit in the summer right after I graduate and I want to know all the hottest spots to be at when I go. I think it's perfectly reasonable and sensible. It's not like I'm staying right? So I wanted to know if Baldwin Hills was a top hot spot/hangout type for young black singles? I'm not trying to get with anybody in LA because I believe in true commitment but I don't think there's anything wrong with eye-candy and hanging out.

I heard B.Hills was a very affluent black community and that's kind of cool to me. I watched that BET show and even though I'm not for rich kids drama, all the parties and beach and all that attracted me to it. I'm not looking to live there but to experience it. At least for a week.

Well Baldwin Hills is pretty small (I live there) but there are a lot of surrounding areas to hang out. I wouldn't just focus on one area.

Baldwin Hills/Ladera Heights/Windsor Hills/ etc..are more residential communities...BET played "Baldwin Hills" up to be the black younger sibling of "Laguna Beach" on MTV...

The hot spots are NORTH of I-10...Try Sunset Blvd...so bring your wallet...

AND Los Angeles is not a majority Black city and there aren't really any REAL majority black neighborhoods left in LA...with the exception of Baldwin Hills...

Baldwin Hills isn't so much a place to 'hang out'. It's a hilly, affluent, residential, family neighborhood. If you come down the hill, it's pretty ghetto.

If you're looking for a 'hang out' that is both black and affluent, you're better off living in nearby Ladera Heights where you'll find the local Starbucks, gym and grocery store quite nice.

As for the show, 'Baldwin Hills,' turn off your tv. It's just entertainment. Most folks are responsible parents and most kids aren't ever-conscious of their parents' affluence because their neighbors are just as affluent. If you wish to visit these areas in hopes of finding the tv show, you'll be disappointed. If you'd like to mix it up w/ a more affluent, sophisticated and educated black set, then come on out, but don't expect a parade of hot spots like Sunset Blvd. These are mostly family neighborhoods.
