"Unsafe areas of LA" South Central Tip by MrPardy

South Central, Los Angeles: 23 reviews and 13 photos

Probably one of the most infamous areas of south LA is the area and within 216th Street, which is essentially located in Torrance, just west of the Harbor/110 Freeway. In the 70s it wasn't so bad but this place is known for murders. A ton of racial tension so don't think it'll be cool to just cruise this area at night. Don't even consider it.

As long as you aren't a dumbass or dressed like a complete slutty whore (as sexy as you may think it is), just have your wits about you, no matter what city you are in. But if you're young and drive a badass car, you will always be frowned up by certain people (of all races!).

Just north of Torrance is Gardena, where the Hustler casino is located. I didn't feel too unsafe i the parking lot but the surrounding areas seem pretttty shady. Not somewhere I would want to be walking around at night.
