    Default Suggestions for apartments in South Bay?

    My buddy works at Home Depot Center, and was considering getting an apartment closer to work. The immediate area (Carson, Glendale, Lawndale) seems to be pretty mixed from a safety perspective, but Redondo Beach might be a bit too far West and a bit too pricey.

    Any suggestions on safe part of town in this area that might be worth looking for apartments in? Any steps in the right direction would be appreciated, thanks!

    got a ballpark budget? I grew up on the Lawndale Torrance Redondo border. I thought it was safe enough. There were several apartments along 182nd between Hawthorne and Western if I remember correctly. Granted it's been at least 10 years since I lived near there. I think in 2002 we paid $850 for a 2 bedroom with a parking spot at the corner of 182nd and crenshaw.

    Less than 3 years ago, I lived in a place in Redondo for $675... although most people's master bedroom was probably larger than that place. What size is he looking for? What's his budget?

    I believe he was hoping for the range of $800-900/month. As opposed to getting a 1-bedroom or studio, not opposed to getting a 2-bedroom ~$1600-1800/mo with a roommate .

    Pedro's not too far away. Some good areas above Gaffey or Western. Some bad areas below Gaffey or Pacific. Stuff can be within walking distance. Ocean is, like, right there. Seeing the pretty blue lights on the Vincent Thomas Bridge on the way home from work every night. Hearing the ships blow their horns at 3AM (could be good or bad)

    I'd look along Artesia west of the 91. Won't be a long commute at all, and there's a bunch of apartments between Western and Normandie. It's also close to Rascals, which has one of the best Chinese Chicken Salads available.

    Down just past Crenshaw, near Yukon, there's a lot of places, as well, though I'm not sure how much those would be, as they are in Torrance. Would only add a few minutes to the drive, though.
