A large majority of the country is a warm and friendly place. But any large city will have neighborhoods that you really should stay out of (LA definitely does). One thing you can do, anywhere you're staying, is to ask the hotel clerks where to go and where not to go. When I visited New Orleans a few years ago, the hotel people made sure we knew which areas to stay away from. (That was Before Katrina. Some areas were notorious then.) So just ask the locals.
