"Quiet Venice Neighborhood"

Millwood is a residential area just away from the main coastal action in Venice. Around Electric Avenue at the western border of the neighborhood, things have a rather run down look to them, with a fair number of 1970’s apartment complexes. The area is relatively safe, although it was the site of senseless 2007 murder of a pregnant woman in a home invasion of her apartment. Another man was also shot at the edge of the neighborhood after coming out of a club in what was probably a gang slaying. To the east of here there is a prominent gang problem which most of the time stays put to the east of Lincoln.

As you go inland and slightly north, you find homes grow larger, nicer and more secluded with tall hedges and other sorts of barriers to easy surveillance. The neighborhood still has the characteristic signature of the Venice neighborhood, the narrow alleyway that is named as a street.

Like Windward Circle, this area too has a European style traffic circle, though this one is much smaller and less prominent. A nice effect but not really that big of deal.
Pros
  • Affordable for Venice
  • Close to the Beach
  • Nice Weather
Cons
  • Dangerous
  • Too Many Apartments
  • A Little Dirty
Recommended for
  • Professionals
  • Singles
  • Gay & Lesbian

"Everything you want"

Milwood Trapezoid is part of the Venice Beach area. It's in the center of all of the Venice Beach hub-bub, and is a great area for the single or couple in their 20s or 30s looking for an all-in-one neighborhood.


It's a smaller area that is west of downtown LA. One of the great things about the Venice Beach area is how close it is to LA, yet you still have the beach and the whole beach living experience. Downtown LA is about 15 minutes from Milwood Trapezoid, about 25 minutes to Beverly Hills, and 12 minutes to the LAX airport.

Higher cost of living, as this is one of the most desired areas of LA, but worth it. Shops and malls galore, award winning and world renowned cuisine lies in the center of Venice Beach. Minutes from the MArina Del Rey, couldnt ask for more!
