West Adams Reviews

3 reviews
Overall, this area is up in coming. Currently, it’s poor-lower middle class neighborhood. There are good business in the area, but they lack variety. There is not much of a community or neighborhood feel to it. One positive thing is the general central location. You can access other areas of Los Angeles using the local highway.

This area is filled with culture and a loving community that looks out for each other. There is always something to do, but plenty of places to relax if you want to wind down.
Its very peaceful and it's a great to live in. If you love animals its a place where many neighbors have pets. there a metro train that can take you to Santa Monica.
