"Yikes! Stay Away! No legitimate reason to be on this street unless you are going to St. Vincents Hosp"

As mentioned in the title. St. Vincents Hospital is located on Alavarado and Third. If you don't have business at the hospital then you are probably on this street to buy crack cocaine or are lost. It is a seedy area, you will find McArthur Park, not a good place for the kiddies.

"Little Armenia or Little Mexico?"

On the 101 there is a sign that proclaims this exit to be Little Armenia. However most of it's population is Mexican. While there's plenty of flavor, it tends to be of the impoverished variety. It's known as the place to buy illegal drugs, fake IDs, or even stolen identities. The area on the North Side of the 101 is significantly nicer the roads get a little confusing though once you pass Sunset. I always seem to wind up in Glendale before I figure out where I am.
