Using data dating back to 2010 from the LA Bureau of Street Services, the Los Angeles Office of Community Beautification, and the LA Bureau of Sanitation, the worst and best neighborhoods for the following city services are:


Best: Elysian Park (median pothole fix in 3 days)

Worst: Hollywood Hills West (median pothole fix in 29.9 days)

Bulky item pick-up

Best: Atwater Village (2.9 percent of items picked up after next collection day)

Worst: Wilmington (62.1 percent of items picked up after next collection day)

Graffiti removal

Best: (tie) Sunland and Tujunga (Median of 0.1 days’ wait to have graffiti removed)

Worst: (tie) Mid-City and Mid-Wilshire (Median of 3.6 days’ wait for the same service)

Slow response times were frequently found in both affluent and poorer areas. Pothole repair, for example, was slow in both Studio City (20.8 days) and Vermont Knolls (19 days). But the fact that no one can find a pattern or accurately explain the vastly unequal response times to these problems isn’t exactly comforting. “In some cases, agency officials weren’t aware of the imbalances and were unable to explain them,” says the Times.
