How is the commute from Silverlake (silverlake blvd near Sunset blvd) to Venice? We are considering moving to Silverlake, but my roommate works in Venice and doesn't want a terrible commute. He works from 10-6.

Thank you!

Horrible because Silverlake isn't close to the 10FWY.


Takes about 15-20 minutes to make your way from Silverlake to the Downtown LA area--add one hour from DTLA to your destination in Venice.

101-110-10. Of course everything depends on traffic so always check Google traffic before heading out.

For example, right now Google traffic shows Venice to Silverake to be 1hr and 10min, at 5:30pm. Typical traffic with no major issues, so that's the best the OP can expect.

In other words, kill me now.

Morning.... depending on how deep into Venice and parking and all the local Venice craziness... 45 minutes minimum to ~ 1 hour. I make a similar trip in off-peak hours to the Mar Vista area in about 35 minutes. It's not bad hitting the westside from SL... off peak hours. You can sneak over Apex to Glendale to get into DT rather swiftly to get on the 110.

That drive home though would be absolute torture. Absolute. Torture.

Are your rommate's hours flexible?

this is a good point. while silverlake offers a certain lifestyle and like-minded people, you can find that same crowd in lesser concentrations all over the city (including venice). i wouldn't limit your housing options to one 'hood just because it was declared cool in some magazine. great lifestyles can be found throughout our great city.
