Hi Everybody. I am going to be moving to LA in May, and am wondering where I should live. I am young, single, and don't want to pay more than 2k/month. I DON'T drive, so want to live in a good walkable neighborhood, with lots of stores and resturaunds, and good public transit access. My office is located between the Pershing Square, and 7th Street/Metro Center stops. Any suggestions are welcome.

If you can afford DTLA then just live there; preferably in South Park or Little Tokyo. I'm sure you can get a place in K-town that's around Wilshire that with your budget would be really nice. You could also look into Pasadena or if you want to be hipster Highland Park.

^Agree. Get a place in Downtown LA. South Park is the best area for housing there, IMO.

If DTLA doesn't work out, KTown is very urban, but can get a little sketchy. Live near the Purple Line subway.

Pasadena as the Gold Line to DTLA and has its own very vibrant downtown.

A lot of the hipster crowd in Silverlake/Los Feliz rides bikes. It's a quick bike ride or bus ride to DTLA and they have some cool bars and restaurants there, but it's not as much a dense urban center like KTown, DTLA, or Pasadena.

Downtown is where it's at! It's becoming really popular--you'd best get out there before it gets too pricey!

But TBH, you'll probably want to bring your car and you'll have to drive sometimes.
