Exactly what the Rose Parade has been beaming into television sets around the world for decades. Imagine people in Siberia, Canada, and the mid-west watching sunny So Cal and beautiful flowers (indicating a mild growing season immediately prior to New Year's Day) on their TV. They look outside the window at their own miserable 100-feet of snow and ice and immediately make California a dreamed of destination.

I blame Bob and Stephanie for LA's overcrowding.

Well, if he wants to spend $15k every month on housing, great food, nice outfits, sport clubs, German cars, beautiful women, he will find it all at the walking distance from his job in Century City and Beverly Hills.

Here is an inspiration for him.

American Gigolo Filming Locations:
  • The opening is of Richard Gere driving his 450SL along Pacific Coast Highway in Malibu.
  • Gere first meets Lauren Hutton's character at the Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel.
  • Gere's apartment/hotel was supposed to be Wilshire blvd in Westwood, but was actually in the Sunset Plaza section of West Hollywood.
  • Much of the action is centered around then-trendy Westwood Village.
  • He meets his female pimp (and later Lauren Hutton) at Perino's
  • The gay bar he visits was Probe on LaBrea Avenue, an actual gay bar.

The distance from Century City to Manhattan Beach is 16 miles. JMO, I wouldn't do that commute.

Beverly Hills is a great idea, or West Hollywood.

Why move here and start off giving yourself a long commute if you don't have to?

Thanks for all the feedback. I really appreciate it. I was wondering something; if I am looking for a young affluent preppy neighborhood to live where I can make friends with others in my neighborhood; would Brentwood be good for me? Also what is the difference between Beverly Hills and Brentwood (as far as you know). Thanks again for all your help.

Beverly Hills is more centrally located, which can make a big difference when you're socializing. You might also like West Hollywood. Can commute straight down Santa Monica Blvd and if you're near Sunset there's plenty to walk to.

I lived on the East Coast my entire life until four years ago (I'm 46) and hard to say if there are really preppy parts of LA like you have in say Greenwich, New Canaan, or even parts of the Upper East Side. Closest thing might be La Cañada Flintridge, but that's a family area with a rough commute to Century City.

But I hear you. My wife, who's from the hipster paradise of Portland, Oregon, tells me I look "too Connecticut" sometimes.
