Dorene Slavitz answered:
We usually refer to the local police department for crime information. www.lapdonline.org/ in the Los Angeles Police Department site which should provide some good information. If you would like details about the different Los Angeles neighborhoods and their benefits, I recommend you call one of the local Realtors shown here on Trulia. ... more

The best way to know about any given area is to make a personal visit to see if it meets your needs. Some neighborhoods in the downtown area are heavily commercial, while others are experiencing a gentrification with many changes. ... more

When it comes to any safety/crime related issues, it's always best to contact the local authorities with all your questions, hear all there is to hear firsthand. If unfamiliar with the area(s) do revisit more than once and at different times of day, possibly chat with locals/neighbors. Real estate professionals are prohibited from steering, enticing a buyer to purchase/rent, or not, in specific neighborhoods.

I think we all have opinions on safety in certain neighborhoods, but the one's who really know, and have the statistics are the local Law enforcement offices. That would be the place to start for information. ... more

Crimereports.com is my favorite online source, but if I have the chance I like to drive by the location and walk around the neighborhood at least once during the day and once at night. That usually gives me a better idea of how safe an area is. ... more

There is a 7-11 on the corner that attracts an undesirable element but as you travel west on Airdrome into Beverlywood you enter a more upscale community that is patrolled by neighborhood security which does a good job keeping the area safe. Beverlywood as a whole is a low crime area. ... more

North Hollywood covers a large area and its apparent level of safety goes from relatively safe to "I don't think I wanna live there." The sense of security someone new to the area will feel is largely dependent on where they a coming from or have lived before. If you are moving to NoHo from NYC or the Bronx, chances are anywhere in NoHo you will likely feel safe.

Bottom line, no place in Los Angeles is anymore or less safe than another. Many neighborhoods in North Hollywood are made up of working class Latinos and their families. Gang activity isn't as bad as it once was, but it is still there. However, if you are not a member of that community, any unsavory undercurrent is likely to elude you.

Noho also caters to a large population of the "new to LA, up and coming transplants who cannot afford the Westside." Many in this community are artists, techies, show biz wanna be's, along with corporate middle management drones. This group is generally single with no children and they to tend to bypass the large number of single family dwellings in favor of the equally large number of newer condo and townhome communities that provide easy access to shopping, eating, and entertainment.

But also in North Hollywood, you will find gated driveways with shrub surrounded perimeters that hide sprawling California Ranch homes of exquisite proportion or reconstructed estates reflecting an eclectic vision, the owners of which are generally well to do and sometimes of notoriety. The socio-economic barriers that usually separate communities seem to have become smeared by the incessant traffic of a wide variety of humans from some vastly differently backgrounds doing their best to be tolerant and get along..

The point being that North Hollywood is an area that can reflect the best and worst of Los Angeles with demographics that range from far below the poverty line to exceptional wealth and everything in between. There's a vast mish-mosh of ethnicities that in many places overlap, but each contributes its own bit of culture to the larger community. Whether you travel the area by foot, car, or public transportation (this is really far too much territory to cover by foot, by the way) but if you are someone prone to wondering, chances are you will encounter that place where you are struck by some sense of deja vu that will make you stop to wonder just where exactly in the world you are.

The best thing to do is to contact the Culver City Police Department. They can give you all of the necessary information so that you can make an informed decision.
