"Inland Marina Del Rey"
Playa Vista is a small middle class neighborhood to the east of Marina Del Rey. Its northern half is sometimes designated Del Rey. Overall is is nice quiet diverse neighborhood although it does have some gang problems around the Mar Vista Gardens, a housing project known for being in the “sotel gang” territory. Like its coastal neighbor, much of Playa Vista is made up of condos on planned, manicured streets. Rents are somewhat on the high side at these condos but not so high as to be out of range for middle class folks.
