What do you mean "just as bad?" Brea, Tustin and Placentia are very nice cities in which to live.

Parts of Anaheim are less than desirable but it covers a large area and many, many parts of it are perfectly safe.

Do you have a particular area of Anaheim in mind?

I work in Tustin and it's gorgeous; I live in Anaheim and it is decidedly NOT gorgeous. Can't imagine why you'd characterize Tustin as "bad", unless I'm misreading you or you're thinking of the OTHER side of the 5.

Pretty much everything in the area you're describing is shady. Not terrible, but not that nice. I don't feel personally unsafe in Anaheim (I go up into L.A. County for that) but don't feel that great about parking my car here at night.

If you are asking Webster Ave where all the old apartment buildings are located, then I'd say it's one of the 6 worst neighborhoods in Anaheim. Built in the 60s, not enough parking, overcrowded. Gang influences, but not as bad as other places in Anaheim. The residential neighborhoods around Brookhurst/ Magnolia and Ball/Broadway are okay. But you couldn't pay me to live in the apartments on Webster.

Anything in Brea will be better than that. Most of Placentia too, except for the area west of old town and apartment row off of Topaz. I don't know anything about Tustin.

Do you mean to say that Anaheim, Brea, Tustin and Placentia are or are not desirable places to live?

There are plenty of areas in Anaheim that are just fine. Lots of areas in East Anaheim are nice heading towards Yorba Linda and Anaheim Hills.

I've lived in Placentia for 30 years and totally agree with the above.
