"Beware of drive-by shootings. Otherwise, fine."

I didn't actually have a problem with Colorado Ave until I saw a drive-by shooting there one night. There are a couple of 24-hour diners on the corner of Colorado and Lincoln - a Dennys and another one called Norms. This is nice when you have late-night food cravings with friends, but I came out of Norms one night around 2AM and almost immediately heard gunshots and saw a car driving off into the distance down Colorado Ave. That isn’t really what I’d call a “safe neighborhood,” so I doubt I’d want to live there. Most of Colorado Ave. is fine during the day, but I’d avoid going there in the middle of the night.
Wstsde_V This was obviously a very isolated incident in an otherwise very safe area. It could happen anywhere in L.A. Just because my friend got mugged by two men with guns on Beverly Blvd in Beverly Hills doesnt make the area a not safe neighborhood. It was also a freak incident.
