Downtown is easily the most walkable place in L.A, with Hollywood and West Hollywood coming in at a second. Silver Lake/ Echo Park is walkable, not nearly as walkable as DTLA and HW. For the person advocating Burbank... Hah! Burbank is as suburban as it gets.

That's not true. Burbank isn't amazingly walkable but it has small blocks and a grid network with commercial arterial roads and a relatively high density. Yes it is suburban, but that doesn't mean you can't walk to a lot of things.

Downtown definitely has the most walkable or pedestrian-friendly design in LA, but the highest concentration of everyday amenities (grocery stores, hardware stores, etc) is in Koreatown, Hollywood or Mid-City West. Of course, as Downtown improves and gets more amenities it will eventually be the most usefully walkable, but right now it is just structurally walkable while those other neighborhoods are more walkable in the sense that there are more amenities within a walkable distance.

Silverlake will remind you of East Portland (Hawthorne area) with similar looking crowds. It might also be cheapter than Los Feliz area. Traffic is horrible on Los Feliz Blvd. Griffith Park is awesome though but it's not too far from Silverlake either although it's literally right next to Los Feliz. Downtown area is cool too but if you want neighborly feelings, you might not like living in dt after a few months.

If you're looking for walkability + suburban = check out Pasadena. Really cool.

I'd say Downtown LA has the best bet for you. Very walkable, lots of public transportation especially subway wise and lots of hip, cool places. It's building up a community feel where people are all a part of helping it improve together. Lots of bikers as well. Best option would be to find a job in DTLA so you almost never have to drive at all!
