West Adams Reviews

1
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.
