It’s not all sunshine and movie stars in Los Angeles, the City of Angels has some pretty sketch neighborhoods, too.

Just how bad are these neighborhoods? Well, you’re going to have to take a look below at RoadSnacks’ list of the worst neighborhoods in Los Angeles for 2024 to see where the crime is high and the average income is low. We call this the perfect storm.

But in order to determine Los Angeles’ worst neighborhoods, we had to give each neighborhood an actual concrete score: we call this a neighborhood’s overall ‘Snackability’. To get this score, we looked at the latest census data on income levels, unemployment rates, crime, and home prices for 83 Los Angeles neighborhoods with over 0 residents. Incidentally, this is our tenth time ranking Los Angeles’ worst neighborhoods, so trust us when we say that these are the worst of the worst.

Folks, the kind of places that we are talking about are the kind of places that you’ll want to invest in a security system or a guard dog. And in all honesty, if you find that one of Los Angeles’ worst neighborhoods is all that you can afford, you might want to think about renting: save yourself the headache.

And because the glass is always half full here a RoadSnacks, we think that If you do get stuck in one of Los Angeles’ worst neighborhoods, it might not be all bad. Heck, you could be front and center to a real life Cops episode in Watts and/or you could get some practice talking yourself out of sticky situations if you live Downtown.

So, want to know what Los Angeles’ neighborhoods you should avoid if you value your life? Keep reading.

Sadly, Los Angeles’ worst neighborhoods have carjackings happening in broad daylight, daily robberies, and plenty of violent crimes. There are currently 12,000 police officers that patrol Tinseltown, but the city houses 4 million residents. Law enforcement is doing their best to clean up the city’s worst neighborhoods, but they can’t be everywhere. As a result, places like Hollywood are starting to see the negative effects.

So, what’s the worst neighborhood in Los Angeles for 2024? The worst neighborhood in Los Angeles would be Fashion District according to the most recent data.

To see how the rest of Los Angeles’ neighborhoods faired, take a look at the list below; and if you don’t see what you’re looking for there, head to the bottom.

The 10 Most Dangerous Neighborhoods In Los Angeles For 2024

More on Fashion District:  Data

Where’s the worst neighborhood in Los Angeles? That would be the Fashion District.

There’s only about 2,466 people packed into this little hood, but all of them are broke. The Fashion District is the most dangerous part of LA, too, where you might just get blown away for wearing the wrong hat.

Homes here cost about $89,350 for a reason. Think about that. It’s 4 times more expensive to live in Watts than in the Fashion District neighborhood. Can we interest anyone in a $89,350 house in the Fashion District? No? Okay then.

The Fashion District kinda resembles a third world country in some blocks. You’d better be careful walking through this neighborhood in the day, and maybe reconsider at night.

Wholesale District-Skid Row Los Angeles, CA

More on Wholesale District-Skid Row:  Data

Believe it or not, there’s actually a couple of LA neighborhoods that are actually worse than South Central, Skid Row and Watts. Take for instance the Wholesale District. Most people call it Skid Row.

You’ve probably been here before at one point or another if you’re from the LA area. It’s where the city of LA has basically allowed anyone and everyone to camp out and squat along several major streets, including San Pedro and South Los Angeles Streets.

It’s essentially one big permanent homeless encampment with poop everywhere. Not good. Not fun.

Some people come here to gawk at the area. Others accidentally make a wrong turn and wind up here. No matter what – lock your doors.

Now, the only real difference between Skid Row and the Wholesale District is a line on a map. However, the Wholesale District is technically even more dangerous and poor than Skid Row.

More on Watts:  Data

Watts is a notoriously horrible place you can live in the greater LA area.

Wanna play a joke on your friends? Tell them you’re going to a party in Watts tonight and watch their reaction.

This neighborhood, located just north of the 105 on Compton Boulevard, is basically a one big housing project. Things are so bad in Watts that this neighborhood has a Wikipedia entry. And a very lengthy one at that.

Believe it or not, but an average home in Watts actually costs $354,525. In most places in America, $354,525 gets you a really nice home in a pretty decent neighborhood. In Watts, that gets you a single story, 1200 square foot dump with bullet hole patches on it. This is one of many LA areas made famous by mid 90’s hip hop gangster rappers like TuPac, Snoop Dogg and Dr Dre, who featured Watts in songs like California Love.

They’ve tried to make Watts better. Every year there’s a “Toys for Watts” toy drive, a “Watts Summer Games” event, and even a Watts Christmas parade.

More on Downtown:  Data

Our next stop along our undesirable drive through LA’s worst neighborhoods stops in, surprisingly, downtown. The downtown LA neighborhood is, well, downtown, and while many places here aren’t the worst part of LA, some of the worst parts of LA overlap downtown.

So, technically, the downtown neighborhood of Los Angeles has some okay parts and some don’t ever go there again parts.The statistics for downtown LA indicate there’s no real reason to live here if you have a choice. That’s one reason homes are the 47th cheapest in all of LA. Believe you me, if this area was desirable, every wanna be hip LA cool guy would try to live here.

They aren’t.

Sure, entertainment wise, there’s a lot to do in the downtown neighborhood. But the people who live downtown don’t really have the money to do them. Do you think the broke people who live downtown can afford to go to MOCA or the Chandler Pavilion? No.

Methodology: How we determined the most dangerous Los Angeles neighborhoods in 2024

To figure out how bad a place is to live in, we only needed to know what kinds of things people like and then decide what places have the least amount of those things. We plugged the following criteria into Saturday Night Science to get the worst neighborhoods in Los Angeles:

  • High crime (Estimated)
  • High unemployment (Less jobs)
  • Low median income (Less pay)
  • Low population density (No things to do)
  • Low home values (No one’s willing to pay to live here)

Then, we ranked each neighborhood in Los Angeles, California for each of these criteria from worst to best.

Next, we averaged the individual rankings for each criterion into a “Worst Score.”

The neighborhood with the lowest “Worst Score” ranks as the most dangerous neighborhood of Los Angeles.

The article is an opinion based on facts and is meant as infotainment. We updated this article for 2024. This report is our time ranking the worst neighborhoods to live in Los Angeles.

27 thoughts on “The 10 Most Dangerous And Worst Neighborhoods In Los Angeles, CA

  1. I’m going to find the neighbor who put my house up here in El Sereno,I know it’s someone who don’t like us,well guess what we don’t like u

  2. The editor’s disclaimer and infotainment premise are both big jokes. The article? Let’s put it this way: if the article were a person earning its keep, it couldn’t survive in any but the cushiest LA neighborhoods.

  3. Why wasn’t a photo of Banning Blvd. north of L St. posted for Wilmington? Why Broad Ave.? Talk about bias. Roadsnacks? No, roadkill.

  4. I live in Wilmington, California the place you said was “the #1 worst neighborhood
    in Los Angeles, CA”. So you live in Durham NC ? Have you ever actually visited any
    of the neighborhoods in your inaccurate article. Well for one thing I would
    obviously disagree with you on your ranking Wilmington # 1 Worst in Los Angeles. I
    have lived here my whole life and I know the place inside and out.

    Many of the other places you named are in smoggy hot inland parts of LA, whereas
    Wilmington is on the coast and gets great cool weather all summer long. Downtown LA
    and other LA neighborhoods you named can be over 90/100 degrees in the summer at the
    same time Wilmington is in the 70s with a cool daily ocean breeze.

    Wilmington has several Parks including a brand new Wilmington Water Front Park, and
    plans for the LA Harbor Department for a further Harbor Water Front development with
    restaurants, picnic areas, boat rentals, etc.

    We are also within very short driving proximity to many beaches and things to do,
    including but not limited to, Long Beach, CA Beaches, Queen Mary and the world class
    Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, Shoreline Drive Village, the Long Beach Pike
    Amusement Zone, many restaurants, nightclubs, and Harbor Cruises, etc., which are a
    3 to 4 mile drive away (5 to 10 minutes).

    Wilmington itself is right on on the LA Harbor, and has several Private Yacht and
    Boat Marinas contained within Wilmington.

    Wilmington is also a 15 to 20 minute drive to three world famous beaches. Redondo
    beach, CA, Hermosa Beach, CA and Manhattan Beach CA where people come from all over
    the world to vacation. It is also adjacent to San Pedro, CA which has Cabrillo
    Beach and a number of Harbor locations including the Cabrillo Yacht Marina which
    rivals Marina Del Ray, Port’s ‘O Call all within a few minutes drive.

    Wilmington also is the locale of Los Angles Harbor Community College. Adjacent to
    the college is the Los Angeles County Ken Malloy Regional which Has a hugea nature
    preserve and also contains Machado Lake with covers many acres. Picnic places,
    hiking trails etc are contained within this Huge Park and Lake complex in
    Wilmington. Also the Regional Park is currently under a $150 million renovation
    project which will make it an even better place to go.

    Anyway …. my point is you did a huge disservice to my home town just showing again
    anyone can put anything in on the internet and be absolutely wrong about what they
    are saying.

    I’m sorry to say this Mr. Sparkes, but you are an ignorant libelous so called
    reporter who should check his facts before using certain statistics to be the sole
    judge of his story.

    1. I think this “study” is BS, too. If I were going to reply about Wilmington, it would be very close to what your wrote.

    2. I dislike that individuals want to label a whole community.. Have you even been to any of these areas? My family has lived in Wilmington for over 60 years. In the same house with the same neighbors. Families who have lived, worked, and raised generations, side by side. Who love and respect there city and thoes in it. Just because there are a few bad “apples” don’t make an entire city bad. If that was the case then every city in the USA would be bad.

  5. Does anyone with their feelings hurt realize that this article is based off statistics!? The guy did is homework; if you dispute what he is saying based off opinion, that’s ok- but ask the guy for his sources because I can put money on it that he has sources! come on people read statistics. Its all averaged out from the population even if certain groups(cities) are bigger they average out.

    Thank you for the article.

    I have a cousin that lives on 106 & Vermont.

  6. Pacoima bad I don’t think so, I grew up there 20 years plus. And still would love to live there for the fact that that neighborhood is tight with family and friends. So the next you through city names into a list that you have an opinion maybe keep them to yourself thanks no really thanks.

  7. The list is absolutely spot on. The entire part of the city of Los Angeles that lies between south of the 10 and east of the 405 is in absolute shambles, a wasteland, worse than conditions in a third world country. There is absolutely no reason for a civilized human to be in this part of town unless he’s driving through trying to get to friendly territory in the South Bay. For example, the 90062 zip code has a shocking 35% of the population living below the poverty line. 40% of the population doesn’t have a high school education. A civilized person would feel awkward having poorly educated, rude, loud, buffoonish idiots as his neighbors. There are no jobs, no shopping, no entertainment, no amenities out there. Failed schools. There’s nothing to do there other than stop by at the liquor store. Crime, drugs, hookers, homeless, trash, graffiti everywhere.

    In central LA, I would steer clear of Westlake aka MacArthur Park. Alvarado/6th – you’d swear you were in a slum somewhere in El Salvador. Koreatown north of Wilshire is quite awful.

    The ghetto disease has spread to chunks of the 818 since the 1980s. Sylmar, San Fernando, Panorama City, Sun Valley, parts of North Hollywood, Canoga Park are sketchy and sleazy and should be avoided.

    East of the LA river – Boyle Heights, El Sereno, Lincoln Heights are no-go zones. Unfriendly territory for civilized people.

    Basically almost the whole city of LA is a big fat disaster. The LAUSD and LAPD are national embarrassments. Traffic will take a toll on your mental health. Trash, graffiti, drugs, homeless everywhere. Perhaps half the residents do not have citizenship, legal residence, work permit or any kind of visa. Broken English will pollute your ear drums. I would strongly recommend anyone having to be in LA County to seek out a separate municipality: Burbank, Calabasas, Santa Monica, Glendale, South Pasadena, Torrance – the local governments there actually know to provide services, the schools are not churning out gang-bangers and baby mamas, traffic is tolerable, and the streets are clean.

    1. You truly are the scum of the earth. Thank god I can be rest assured I’ll never have the chance of bumping into you in my slumland of a neighborhood.

      1. What Tom says is nothing but the truth. Don’t believe him if you don’t want to but DO look with your eyes at areas like Boyle Heights. I presently live here and am doing my best to GET OUT. It’s got cracked sidewalks, filth all over the streets. The city officials obviously don’t care. It used to be a clean family town with the pretty Hollenbeck Park near the freeways. It’s now an unkept park. Last week a woman was gang-raped at the park. When I first moved here 2 years ago, one of my fellow tenants was shot and killed across the street. If only there were fines for not keeping up your homes and businesses, the way they do in Glendale. Glendale is beautifully kept…So is Beverly Hills. Cleanliness is King.

    2. …what a leap to correlate bad behavior with a poor education. I was raised in NYC, a wealthier and more educated population than LA overall and I can say I never experienced the kind of low class behavior I’ve experienced in supposed best place to live, Century City. As a woman of color, I’ve lived in Century City for the past 7 years and people don’t clean up after their dogs, leave their beer bottles in the grass, are unfriendly, have no sense of community and cross the street when they see me walking my menacing 15 lb cockapoo. (That last part was sarcasm); there’s nothing classy or high minded about people who behave that way. I’m one of the youngest people in my neighborhood and one of the few people who don’t need someone to share the rent with and yet, the first thing my neighbors routinely ask me (if they address me at all) is what do I do for a living because they want to know how we live in the same neighborhood. There are a lot of racist and ignorant comments here underscoring the fact that money doesn’t buy you class or good sense. PS- I’m no one’s baby mama or kept woman and though I don’t fall into the poor category, poor people tend to work more for less pay and pay more in taxes so they don’t get to see their kids either and they don’t have some creative/knowledgeable Accountant to save them money…that’s for you, you know who you are.

  8. LOL! Only the scum of the earth would ever say LA is a nice place to live. They all jumped the fence at TJ and cant afford to buy shoes to “jump back” to their mexsiken toilets! Illegal subhumans from the south and their illegal shit bred rats make this the worst city on west coast by far! GO TRUMP!!!!

  9. I see some places ranked higher on the safety end than really should be. Please remember this is only a rough guide which uses paperwork, bar graphs, pie charts, with a fair amount of PC mixed into it all. For example, Venice Beach is OK if you stay on your high dollar hotel property. Don’t go barefoot lest you gouge your foot with a used syringe. (no needle exchange in county). Busted alcohol bottles, plenty of “street theater”. If you’re young and adventurous and looking for some goods, this is the area for you. Just watch yourself. Santa Monica is nice, but they’re taking the bad with the good. Daytime in SM is best. Downtown is expensive if you wish to do something upscale or do the Staples Center. The hotelery ranges from terrible to the finest. I may as well tell you the rougher parts of LA are the residential areas in which low income “people of color” live. Don’t be attempting to buy any drugs from anyone on the street, pot is legal in state stores, no pick ups as they can go bad. Just use your head, don’t get drunk and you should be fine.

  10. When you copy whole articles from Wikipedia, it would be nice to add somewhere so that people don’t think some of the article was original…

  11. Excellent Excellent excellent so much discrimination against white peopl HERE IN LA IVE BEEN TOLD THINGS MOSTLY BY HISPANICS AND I learned that language to be by living here in Los Angeles never took a class… never brought up speaking or WANTING TO HAVE TO SPEAK IT! Bravo to you! Thk you

  12. Let’s do this with these criteria:

    1. heat/humidity index
    2. number of days with below freezing temperature
    3. racial grrymandering taken to court
    4. racialky rigged elections
    5. redneck index
    6. bugs
    7. body fat index
    8. creationism
    9. climate çhange denial
    10. homophobia
    11. evangelical/pentecostal/southern baptist index
    12. vinegary barbecue
    13. good old boy sexist index
    14. resistance to progress index
    15. erc etc etc

    Where would you rank, North Carolina? Sorry, you make Wilmington, CA (not NC with its hurricane index) sound pretty good. You lose.

  13. LOL, you did a lot of research. Um, “Number 1- the Fashion District”, you have a photo of The Broad Museum. That’s in a whole different part of DTLA. But, you’re an intern that doesn’t live in LA, right?

  14. Wow what rank is Compton and Marina Del Rey where you see a lot of homeless people and crack heads walking around everywhere we recently moved from Manhattan Kansas to playa vista in L.A. and it is very safe you see lots of fur kids and security and cops and I never seen a crackhead or homeless person in playa vista

  15. According to this list, the Hollywood Hills (home values over $1 Million) is a worse neighborhood than Sylmar (home values in the $300K)? Are you kidding me? Valley Village is home to many very wealthy actors and people in the biz that could live anywhere they choose. San Pedro has million dollar homes on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and Catalina Island. And Panorama City (don’t go there) is listed as better than all of those places? This list has so many mistakes. But yes…Bel Air is nice.

  16. The bumbling moron that wrote has the median home price in Palms, California as $440K. You can’t get a house in Palms for under $1.5 million. That should tell you all you need to know about this fact-less pile of rubbish.

  17. RyanB,…just about everything you said is inaccurate. Only 15% of Californians are asian. You’re clueless.

  18. This is so silly. I’ve lived in Skid Row for 4 years and I don’t drive so I walk through here a lot. Nobody has ever attacked me, I’ve never been a victim of a violent crime. I can walk through here at 12:00pm or 3:30am, it doesn’t matter.

    There is a lot of misery and suffering on the streets, but to say it is “unsafe” is just stupid. All the neighborhoods adjacent to Skid Row are really nice, but you won’t read about that on these poverty porn articles or see it on Youtube.
