Hi All,

I have a new job in Santa Monica, so I'm moving to LA in a week or so, but need to find a place. The two places I'd prefer to live are Arts District and WeHo. What are the daily commutes like? I know it's nothing great, but is there an average time range it would take me to get to and from work?

Where do you live now? Does your new employer know that you will need to relocation (i.e., move) for this new job? If so, what areas did they suggest? How in the world did you come up with Arts District as a potential location for your residence?

Commute times will depend on when you have to start work.

Lol.

Neither of those places will be much fun with that commute. I used to do West Hollywood to West LA (almost in Santa Monica) and the commute was brutal.. 45 min - 1 hr for a 10 mile commute. I had a friend who did Hancock Park to Santa Monica and it took him 1hr:15 min in the mornings .

Arts District would be even crazier. Maybe the expo line would be an option, but you'd still have to get to it from the Arts District.

The secret to LA is to live near your work. If I were you, I'd look at West LA, Venice, Santa Monica, Mar Vista, Marina Del Ray, Playa Vista (all depending on your budget).

Seriously find a place in Santa Monica. Or as close as you can to your work.
