Thanks Harry, I was actually exploring some maps and thinking Culver City might be the better alternative to West Hollywood for several reasons.

Interesting that you should mention Culver City. I began exploring maps of the area and it looked like Culver might be the better option. Housing costs out there are sort of unrealistic in my estimation. Is living in southern California Nirvana? Seems like one has to live in a closet for 1500.00 a month and to hell with parking your car, which you need because the public transit system sucks. I find it amazing that I would need to pinch pennies to live there earning 80K.

Good apartments in nice areas of the west side are expensive. But it's kind of a stretch to say a single person making $80k/yr. would need to pinch pennies to afford to live there. You'd still have around $3000 a month left after paying ($1500) rent. You might want to look at east Santa Monica or West Los Angeles (which is just east of Santa Monica). $1500 will get you a average sized (600-700 square foot) 1BR apartment.
