My family and I just moved here. It's a quiet city, if your not near the airport, and is really the center of the southbay. So far my experience here has been a positive one, except for one night my wife said she heard a noise outside at about 2:00 at night so I got up and took a bat with me only to find someone digging through all of our boxes outside in the garage. He ran as quick as he could and got away, I reported the break in to the police the next day and they suggested that we get an alarm system. That's how we got our German shepherd, Tyler.
Pennsylvania Ave. is a raceway day or night also seems to be a safe haven for prostitutes and drug dealers.
Pros: Long time residents, good neighbors, friendly city hall, horse properties and agriculture zoned areas, last area to be enveloped by fog, frost about once every 8 years, daily breeze, walking distance to RH shopping center, Torrance Town Center, Cross Roads Center,a few ethnic food gems, temperate evenings, good cell reception, Sheriff dept located in Lomita, the Lomita firefighters and paramedics, Magnet grammar schools, St. Margaret Mary's private school, and propeller driven planes landing at Torrance airport (especially during air shows and some federal holidays).
Cons: Airplanes (U either love them or hate them), the telephone poles on Pennsylvania has to be the worst eye sore in the South Bay, street conditions, Fearless and The Intimidator: 2 roving raccoons, some streets are crowded (but nothing like Hollywood rental areas), and the city doesn't express a cohesive vision/identity.
Oak street from lomita blvd to pch is horrible!!! other than that I love my city
The streets are in terrible condition. I can't believe we are paying higher taxes than Beverly Hills and our streets are so bad.
downside - roads are the worse I've ever driven on in all of LA County.
