Whoops I just remembered your budget..! lol..
Ha! Thanks. These are beautiful. And once I'm working would be more in our price range. We just have to factor in that I might not be working right away (even 6 months into moving) depending on what I find etc.

Thanks! And would you say there's easy access to transit from Studio City as well?

I would definitely try to get close to a train station. You will have a lot more options for transit this way.

Metrolink :: Welcome

There's also a subway system which goes around downtown/Universal City area

I know commute times in LA are disasterous but I'm wondering is there anywhere we could live that would allow me to access jobs etc. while also not creating too much commute time for my boyfriend to Northridge.

Any advice would be much appreciated!!

Thanks very much!

Metrolink :: Stations

metrolink commuter trains stop in Northridge. That will give you access to other parts of town to work.

if you lived near the intersection of ventura/vineland, you would be a short walk (<10 min) to the universal city metro station. there are many, many apartment buildings in the area.

You are far better being close to a redline metro station (Universal City, North Hollywood) than a Metrolink Station (Northridge) as the Metrolink servicing that station has very limited service including nothing on the weekends.
