How is the area in Panorama City? I've been looking at apartment complexes in the area.

Panorama City is a WHOLE other world. Just take a drive and you will see. It's not exactly a place people aspire to live in. It's not a very safe area as well. As a result, it's super affordable and also very dirty. You may want to create a whole separate thread for this one so you can get more responses specific to Panorama City.

FrankyJay, you'll have to let us know how you're dealing with the daily traffic in Hollywood. I would have told you to also move to NoHo. Curious why you didn't take the other commenters advice.

@David I am loving the Hollywood place so far! I am from Manhattan, so the city feel of this place makes me feel right at home- I am here with my partner and we only have one car between the two of us, and he usually takes it to get to work, so by living here I can literally walk to anything I need, and it's right by Runyon canyon which I frequent. The traffic is bad,but not unbearable, and like I said we don't even use the car all that much.

About 80% of the population of LA are "actors".

He felt the need to point that out like it was something special, go to the local restaurant and your server will most likely be an "actor" too.

West Hollywood is better.

Trust me. Don't worry about driving to auditions, unless it's in the Valley, then it's best to take your car.

The buses in West Hollywood or LA proper run VERY WELL.

North Hollywood is good if you have a car, but what if it breaks down, then what? You're literally trapped living in that stifling heat the Valley is known for.

Go with #2 option. You won't regret it. Not at all.

Are either of these true?
Yes. Noho is super hot. The valley is 10 degrees hotter than the rest of the city. You most definitely need a car to live there, because there is nothing in walking distance. You do not want to be caught walking in that horrible, stifling heat.

West Hollywood is the BEST option. If you can afford it with no problem, then you'll love it.

Thanks Marilyn!!! We did go with apt 2!! It is very exciting and the advice you gave has echoed many others! Thanks for the feedback!


@trackwatch Again, I'm not really sure what your talking about. Nobody made anything out to be special. Lol but I do think it's hilarious that you make a point to put "actor" in quotes and let me know how many people are in the biz!
You should see my other post- "Hating on Actors".
