Yes, it definitely doesn't have enough barrios and slums as it is.

Hmm I looked this word up and didn't get a great definition.. Is it a hipster? *scratches head* if so, I'm not sure I belong in this category. and no I can't really reconsider. LA wasn't exactly my top choice as far as office location, but it was a job, which I wanted and needed, and now Im trying to figure out how to make the best of moving there. Thanks for your useless input anyway.

That is if your interested in living around all of the energy that comes with living in those areas.
Thanks for the tip! I'm gonna check out that area next weekend and see what I find. I'm definitely not sharing with a roommate though. For one thing, I don't know anyone in LA, and hunting for the perfect roommate right now seems too much of a hassle. Plus I'm really particular about a clean living space and I've always sorta been secretly annoyed with past & current roommates about this issue.

I've already scheduled some property visits with the downtown high rises. Hopefully they live up to the pictures.

Typical westsider view. Anything east of Fairfax is the ghetto. This isn't 1992.

It's still nuts to charge that much rent in a middle class or lower middle class area.

The firm i'll be working for is one of the best, so that's why i immediately accepted the offer. also, my salary should progress nicely as i put in more years at the firm.

as one seasoned professional to a young professional starting up always remember this: Management lies... Haha! Ok back on topic..


also, accounting firms are known for not offering much for entry-level positions. It's more about exit options or going for the partnership track, i guess. : )

the suggestion of culver city was good. You might also look at santa monica if you don't mind driving. The thing with dtla is that la is so decentralized and the downtown isn't the hub of lots of activities. Despite some "gentrification" of late, it's still got some heavy crime pockets as well. I did end up in a 20's style speakeasy called the edison in dtla a couple years ago. Interesting decor and lots of young people. I think sm would just have a lot more going on for someone like yourself. You might also want to consider a roommate, it would cut down on your expenses considerably and help you meet people so long as they aren't a total dud.. Good luck and enjoy youth!

See what kind of incentive programs your company has for commuting using public transportation.

You can live in Burbank and take the train in to work, Culver City and take the the Metro, South Pas or Pasadena and ride Metro......

Lots of possibilities.

I think Streetlegal is right. If it's lower middle class why are the rents in the area saying otherwise? This is not lower middle class.
