Hi everyone,

I just moved to LA less than a week ago for work. I am a 27 year old male. I am in corporate housing for another 3 weeks, and am trying to locate a permanent apartment to move into. I work in Redondo Beach, and would like some suggestions on places to live in LA. I originally was searching in the beach cities, but I am in a wheelchair and there are virtually no wheelchair accessible apartments there (not to mention all of the hills). I have also looked into Marina Del Rey, Venice, and Long Beach, but having really found exactly what I'm looking for.

I am looking for a fun area what a lot of nightlife and other young professionals. Based on what I've read on this board I am thinking of looking into West Hollywood, Los Feliz, Santa Monica, Melrose. I would like to keep my rent around 1600, and would prefer a 1BR over a studio. I also would prefer my commute to be around 30-40 minutes (I am in RB off of the 405). I have flexibility in my work schedule to avoid rush hour traffic.

I'm looking for suggestions on any other areas to consider that may fit my needs.. and also some more specifics about the areas I have already mentioned (such as what streets and intersections to live near for the most fun).

Thanks in advance!

You may want to head inland toward Hawthorne, Lawndale, Torrance and Gardena. You'll hit more residential neighborhoods, but the Beaches are still close enough to drive through (at most a 20 - 30 minute drive) - you'll find the inner neighborhoods have apartments that can accommodate wheel chair tenants.
