I heard Harlem is becoming the spot to live in Manhattan. Starbucks Coffee and other trendy shops moving into the neighborhood. Youny white professionals slowly creeping back into the neighborhood, looking for better rent deals than in the city. Not sure about the accuracy, this is second hand information.
As far as L.A. starting to become one of the nations safest cities, I can see that. You don't see the same B.S. around the city like in the 80's and early 90's. Fools posted up on the corner strolling in packs, hanging out in parks, is almost a thing of the past. Which is a good thing.
