Contact the Long Beach police department to get info on crime stats.
If parking is a concern, you should look for places with assigned parking or a small garage. Since you come home late at night the GOOD parking spots on the street will surely be taken.
Best of luck to you!

I think it is a pretty safe area, but parking can be difficult to find and walking late at night in the area could be risky. It is probably worth trying to find a place with assigned parking. I would check with the local police station to ask about crime nearby the area before you decide.
