Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Dear Candy Lovers: Los Angeles is apparently the second best place in the country to get your trick-or-treat on. This number comes from the real estate site, Zillow, which ranks each city for its candy-collecting potential every year. Zillow uses the population density, walkability and crime data to figure out which 20 cities provide the highest candy yield in the least amount of time, but with the fewest hazards.

This puts San Francisco in the top spot, followed by us, then Chicago, Philadelphia and San Jose. Our ranking has steadily moved up through the years. Zillow didn't figure in weather, but we'd like to think our warm Octobers probably don't hurt either.

Each top city has also been broken up into the best neighborhoods. Zillow recommends candy aficionados in Los Angeles hit up Pacific Palisades, Brentwood, Cheviot Hills, Bel Air and Eagle Rock.
