Where is the village at Orange? I know Orange fairly well and I have not heard of this place.

the second question people will need to know. Do Hispanics (aka "Mexicans") make you feel unsafe just by being Hispanics? Some people get scared just because they see a lot of Hispanics hanging around. If you fit that category, then some areas that are otherwise relatively safe are nto for you.

I'm referring to the area between Tustin & Glassell and between Lincoln & Taft. More specifically, this is the area surrounding the mall and shops. I don't mind an area that has lots of hispanics but would prefer an area that had a healthy mix of other groups as well so I, as a Caucasian, would not stick out like a sore thumb. I currently live in an area in LA county that is predominently hispanic yet I feel safe here. As long as I don't have to deal with gang activity or crime infested areas.

I know some people who live to the East of the mall (other side of the freeway) it is very nice over there. I know some people who slive south of the mall about 2 miles and east of Tustin and it is reasonably nice thre. Solidly middle class. I only know one person who lived close to the mall on the west side of Tustin. The area he lived in was not very nice. It was really close to the mall (walking distance). Your best bet is to drive around and evne stop and ask people int he area that you are looking at. As a lot of people. You may get one jhaded opinion and not get a true picture of an area. There are always several grass is greener types who dislike any neighborhood that they live in. Try to find someone to give you a truely neutral opinion.
