Isn't it a REALLY long drive from Echo Park/Los Feliz/Silver Lake to Culver City in rush hour mornings? I mean, your options are basically Western all the way down to the 10 FWY...and isn't that like a 30 minute drive in and of itself?

Downtown OTOH...you can zip down 110 South, then the 10 East is a mess, but not really any more of an issue than it would be from the other places. North to Pasadena on the 110 should not really be any sort of an issue I woudn't think.

Glendale is nice. The gangs you heard of are along the southern edge of the city but outside the city. The police are very active and all of that is kept out. The majority of Glendale is very nice and safe. I wouldn't say it was 'trendy' though. I lived in Glendale for 5 years I just barely moved to the valley to buy a house. But I would also reccomend Burbank/Studio City for a young couple. Also look around Universal City/Weddington Park areas. Very nice & trendy as well. Your budget can also get you into West L.A. if you would like.

This might sound a little weird but Encino/Sherman Oaks is almost a halfway point. Also very trendy, nice and safe. 405 south to get to Culver City and 101/134 east to get to Pasadena. You'd be going against traffic to get to Pasadena and you'd be going with traffic to get to Culver City but it's not that bad. If you lived in Burbank or Glendale the commute would be through the 110 south to the 10 west. Having done both the 110/10 commute and the 405 commute I can say the 405 is better. Anything going through downtown sucks.

Yeah that commute sucks. Avoid 110/10.

Thanks for your replies! I have been talking to some friends, and it seems like the commute from the west side to Pasadena is doable. My employer also informed me that they will have a shuttle bus, which is great for those days that I don't want to fight the traffic.

I think that I'm going to choose Marina Del Rey. I really want a waterfront condo, but my wife warned me that living on the water molds your house inside. Is that true? If so, how much of a problem is it?
