"Airport Town"

Westchester started off as an agricultural area --like most of Los Angeles was -- and remained that way until the '50's. Howard Hughes took this area over for flight-related activities and it's been airport turf pretty much ever since.
When planes could make the cross-country flight without refueling (in the '60's) LAX really started to become what it is today. And, now Westchester is ruled by the giant airport.
Loyola moved its campus to Westchester and Pepperdine has one of its grad schools in the area so there are a lot of students who live here. But, I wouldn't want to live here. It's close to the beach but not as close as many other neighborhoods. And, it is pretty cheap but it's ugly. Most of the residences are run down and the yards are pretty sad. There is a ton of traffic in this neighborhood and nothing to so you have to endure it. If you want to eat at a non-chain restaurant or go for a night out -- you have to sit throught insane airport traffic. And, the planes going overhead every 30 seconds has got to be annoying and keep you awake all night long. There just really aren't a lot of redeeming qualities to this neck of the woods. And, I would slit my throat if I had to listen to deafening jets and car horns honking 24 hours a day.
Pros
  • Proximity to airport
  • Cheap rent
Cons
  • Ugly
  • Dangerous at night
  • Traffic
