Shortly after moving to OC, I was randomly exploring the area. I wanted to check out the Santa Ana public library one Saturday but could not find suitable parking even with my GPS aiding me. I got lost trying to find street parking and ended up in a somewhat upscale neighborhood (with very large single family houses, some are stone houses.) It's about 1 mile, give or take, from the library and kinda close to the 5 freeway.

Anyone have an idea which upscale Santa Ana neighborhood this is?

Santa Ana is a crummy city full of mexicans.

Santa Ana has some decent areas but the majority of the city is full of petty and violent crime.

Certainly has dropped since 1999. Dayum, it's even lower than Fontana's by 6 points.

Are you talking about OC Standards? 30 people getting drop in the street doesn't strike me as low.

Now if we're comparing Santa Ana to Oakland, then yes, it's generally low, but not compared to neighboring Irvine.

Or compared to any other city in the county with the possible exception of Anaheim and Stanton.

National standards. Not everybody murdered gets "dropped in the street". 30 out of 340,000 is a very good rate.

Go ahead and compare a 150-year-old city to a master-planned one. Go right ahead.
