Five neighborhoods reported a significant increase in violent crime. Van Nuys (A) was the most unusual, recording 14 reports compared with a weekly average of 7.8 over the last three months. Windsor Square (F) topped the list of six neighborhoods with property crime alerts. It recorded eight property crimes compared with its weekly average of 2.6 over the last three months.

Eleven Los Angeles neighborhoods--including three in the Valley--should begin reaping the benefits of the Targeted Neighborhoods Initiative by the beginning of next year, city officials said Monday. Created by Mayor Richard Riordan and approved by the City Council in March, the $33-million program will use federal funds to help community organizations make a variety of improvements in their areas.
OPINION

I took great interest in "They Did Go Home Again" (March 23), about Angelenos resettling in the neighborhoods where they grew up. Although I grew up in San Pedro, I've lived the past 20 years in the neighborhood where my grandfather grew up. When he was riding his donkey cart here on dirt streets (I have a photo of him with his sister in this cart), this neighborhood was called Exposition Park. It is now called North University Park. My great-grandfather moved his family here because it was the best neighborhood in the city.

Adams Square, Tropico, High Line Road and a dozen other neighborhoods are all part of the puzzle that equals southern Glendale. But have they lost their identity as the city has grown and their unique houses and shops were razed to make way for apartment buildings?

April 13, 1986 | BOB FINDLE, Bob Findle, a real estate agent and resident of University Heights, does most of his business in the North Park area
The metro neighborhoods of San Diego have been a battlefield for the last few years, with developers and construction companies on one side and homeowners on the other. In addition to living in one of these areas, I am a real estate agent who works in the neighborhoods--North Park, University Heights, Normal Heights, Hillcrest, Golden Hill--and I find myself listening to both sides and often being asked for an opinion or a solution.

In 1985, Los Angeles rapper Toddy Tee released what could be considered West Coast hip-hop's opening salvo against police brutality in black neighborhoods. The electro-grooved "Batterram," named for the battering ram that then-LAPD Chief Daryl F. Gates used to smash into homes of suspected drug dealers, was a hit on local radio station KDAY-AM. The track went on to become a protest anthem in minority neighborhoods around the city where the device was often deployed against homes that were later proved drug-free: "You're mistakin' my pad for a rockhouse / Well, I know to you we all look the same / But I'm not the one slingin' caine / I work nine to five and ain't a damn thing changed …" rapped Toddy Tee. The L.A. riots of 1992 arrived with its soundtrack in place.
