I've heard of Santa Anita but I forget Hollywood Park was a horse track. Honestly, when I was looking on the map it looked like a park to me.

As far as trolling I don't really get it. I know enough about forums to know that a troll is someone who post something inflamatory or contencious to get a rise out of somebody. I don't see anything in my posts that is lthe least bit inflammatory.

I didn't even mention that I'd prefer to stay away from the Compton-Watts area (which I had heard is LA's "dangerous" neighborhood) Not to disparage any of the fine folks living there because of a few bad apples

Like I said I may be taking a position in the area and would like some insight. I really detest commuting in traffic which is why I'd like to be close to my prosepective place of employment. Again any insights would be appreciated

For $3.5-$4k, you can find a small bungalow in Venice. Or, you could find a nice little house in the beach cities (Manhattan, Hermosa, Redondo), some well under $4k/mo, with 2+BRs and a small yard. The air is of better quality nearer the coast, and it's not as hot as it can be just a couple of miles inland. Plus, you would have easy access to the beach for outdoor pursuits.

The benefits and quality of life in the coastal areas would far outweigh a few extra minutes in the car, on surface streets, if you want to live/work in this area of LA County.

You could also find a place in West Hollywood, and could take La Cienega to get to the LAX area, avoiding the 405.

And as far as being LA's worst neighborhood, I certainly never implied that in my post. In fact from my google map sojourn the Inglewood area looks quite lovely. Sure it's not very fancy but clean middle class homes, nice lawns, etc., gives it a very nice feel. Of course I haven't yet been there in person but I am looking forward to it.

lol, i live there and the post is actually quite accurate. My block is well kept and our councilman lives on it, Inglewood is quietly gentrifying slowly. The biggest problem right now is the city leadership. There's a reason it was known as "the crowning jewel of the South Bay." You can't keep something down forever. So I guess you are in for a surprise if you actually visit.

It's like living in a very hot climate or a very cold climate...you adapt and accept it as part of living where you live. The good news is that several years ago the City of Los Angeles paid to have many residences upgraded to double-paned windows to reduce the intrusion of air traffic noise. I don't know if Inglewood was part of that upgrade.

I don't know what the Hyde Park affect is, but there are also some nice, well-kept homes in Inglewood North of Manchester to about 79th St., West of Van Ness and East of Crenshaw. I would stay South of the Florence Ave. / Centenila Ave. area. You'll find some very nice homes on and around Hillcrest Ave. Between Florence and Manchester.

I don't know what the rents are in Culver City, but there are some very nice neighborhoods there also.
ya do? We lived on Century Blvd about a million years ago, we never got used to it.

I have to agree, used to live in Studio City and on Sunday nights we were on the flight path into Burkbank Airport(now Bob Hope)...every 5 minutes or so here would come a jet.

Nothing like LAX of course, but still it was something I never got used to.
