I'd suggest you check out Texas. Plenty of growth, lots of opportunity. People moving there every day and it just keeps growing.

I’m 27 and the late-20s anxiety is getting to me and I can’t shake this feeling that I don’t have much more time to get the ball rolling on accomplishing something big (either starting a business or hell even making some kind of a run at acting).

However with the coronavirus pandemic and everything being shut down, I have to wonder if there’s really even any point in relocating to either city now, especially with the reduction in crowds, no bars/restaurants open, no public transport etc, it seems like alot of the benefits of either city are disappearing, at least until a vaccine becomes widely available.

I had even considered a Chicago move up until now. I just want a major relevant city with things to do and good food.

Any advice?
Every major US city has been impacted by covid-19. I'd hold off on any big moves until we get a vaccine.

I moved out here to Los Angeles last year at age 27. OP- you should do what your heart feels like, and ignore the naysayers on here. That sounds like a good setup with your friend in NoHo. Although I did move out here with a full-time job on hand, there's nothing wrong with doing side hustle gigs for your first several months here before finding a more permanent position. You are at the perfect age to make the move to LA, and this place is more resilient and accommodating than CD forums would lead you to believe.

Thank God! These Evangelical hypocrites are the bane of my existence. (I would never live in Texas voluntarily--until it starts turning sane/purple--except that I was born here!)

Gig jobs now? Please don't give the OP false hope.
