Inglewood is the home of champions! Although many criticize that Inglewood is "ghetto" it really isn't. I would say that depending on which side of Inglewood you live in t may or may not be safe to walk around at night time but I think it's like that in every city to a certain extent of course. It is currently transforming into the home of the Rams and they are definitely making this tiny city such a beautiful more technologized place to live. Rent of course is going up as they are building the stadium and since the Fabulous Forum is home of very famous artists. Overall it has been a great place to live as I've been living here my entire life and I know it will keep getting better and better.

The city doesn't have the best reputation. However, with the restoration of the Forum and the construction of the RAM stadium the city is really up and coming. There are a lot of great food places throughout the neighborhood. Once place I highly recommend, Tumby's Pizza. Inglewood High School recently got a new look too. Overall the area is fairly nice!
Inglewood is a city changing for the better. Investment is coming in, stadiums and metro lines are being built, the downtown is scheduled for a huge redevelopment, there are locally owned coffee shops (Hilltop) and breweries (Tortugo, Three Weavers and Crowns and Hops) getting started. North Inglewood is quiet and residential, but still has affordable homes in a very diverse neighborhood. We have nice parks, are close to LAX, to DTLA, and to Santa Monica. As long as Inglewood continues on this trajectory without losing its diversity and character, I see nothing but good things.
