As a native of L.A., this city is a massive toilet in itself; this is true because there are far too many homeless people living in tents and sleeping on sidewalks. Even houses are expensive because it seems the real estate only cater those who are filthy rich (pun intended) and are millionaires.

The cost of living is a joke too, and again, only the rich get what they want. Low-income residents are at their mercy and most jobs they work often have lousy pay, and the rent is atrocious (who would buy $100,000+ houses that aren't too big anyway?). The governments and mayors are completely inept in dealing with the homeless population and everywhere you see, you will see homeless people dropping a deuce on sidewalks, constantly begging for money or other things. And what does the local government do? Try and deter, or even arrest, homeless people, instead of providing them decent homes and jobs so they could live their stable lives.

L.A. is a dystopia in itself, and those who say that the city isn't filled with homelessness and crime need a serious wake-up call. I no longer live in L.A., or even this sad excuse of a state that is California. I now live in a small, quiet town of Wyoming, and I'm happy over there than in California and their dilapidated cities.

One block you can be in an utopia, across the street razor wire fences and muggings in public.

Lived here for 7 years. It can get pretty ugly. I'm glad I left!

L.A. is the entertainment capital of the world and is generally safe for visitors or tourist.

L.A. is a big city with a lot of things to do and people. Crime rate here is moderate and you should be street smart here too.
