Not that bad

I went to a hotel in Hawthorne CA and While going there Hawthorne I thought it was really bad and Inhlewood was going to be dead men everywhere or weed and gangs. But it wasn't that bad at all . In fact many people help you over there. I also went to Watts CAN and Hawthorne was just as close to Watts CA. Inhlewood isn't bad. It just a bit more dirty but Hawthorne has some meaner people in it don't live in Hawthorne unless you want to get shot or die.

Great safe place!!!

Inhlewood got some reason is known for its "crime" but is safer than people actually think! Hawthorne or Lennex is more ghetto when you compare inhlewood with them or even Hawthorne Alone. Inhlewood isn't that bad it's just more graffiti and a bit more people working. It isn't as bad As other places.

Hub of African American Activity!

Inglewood has so much to offer. A vibrant nightlife, great shopping, restaurants, black-owned businesses galore, a great little bookstore called Zahrah's Books and Things...I absolutely love Inglewood, Ca. Can't wait to return to my hometown!
Ladera Shopping Center boasts a great little strip mall anchored by Ralph's and CVS. There is one of the best Goodwill stores I feel in the nation, with vintage clothing, antique furniture, books of every kind and description, many one-of-a-kind items.
Simply Wholesome is a restaurant that offers vegetarian cuisine and on Sunday afternoons area musicians play everything from Afro-Jazz fusion to Raggae to anything inbetween. Across the street, you have landmark La Louisianne, home of gumbo and everything good wrapped up in a Creole funk that permeates the whole block. There are shops that offer authentic African clothing, artifacts, jewelry and various other items direct from the motherland!
Easy access to anywhere you need to go, and you won't need to go anywhere once you go to Inglewood!
Inglewood, California will ALWAYS be my home

Inglewood, CA - Simplicity In A Busy Little City

Nestled just east of the Los Angeles International Airport, the city of Inglewood is a fairly busy and noisy city. Rental and housing prices are lower than most neighborhoods in Los Angeles because of the airport traffic. Although not as intense as it once was, the noise is still bothersome to many residents, making it a less popular place to live. Neighborhoods in Inglewood are a mix of good and bad. Some areas are still rough, while others are close-knit. I have visited the city numerous times when visiting friends. Inglewood does not boast famous and exciting attractions, but shopping is plentiful and jobs are easier to find than several other places in Los Angeles.

Plenty of night clubs, bars and restaurants are available, making this city popular for young adults. Inglewood has plenty of restaurants to choose from, also. The two I recommend higher than any others are Soul Food Kitchen and Canton Kitchen. Soul Food Kitchen more than lives up to its name, providing some of the best genuine soul food west of the Mississippi. Featuring Chinese cuisine, Canton Kitchen is very small but produces the best Chinese food aside from Chinatown in the Los Angeles area.
