Hello everyone; I hope you all doing well and staying safe. I am new to this city data forum, and could use some advice. Last week, my company told me that they will be relocating me to Los Angeles (from New York) once it is safe to move and travel. I work for an asset management company that is located in Century City. I don’t really know Los Angeles all that well; so I am hoping you all can point me in the right direction. I saw this great apartment building in Beverly Hills; which I really like. The commute to work would be like 10 minutes (which is a big selling point). Having said that, I want to know if Beverly Hills would be a good place for a newbie to live. I don’t really know anyone, so I am hoping to make friends with others in my area. A little bit about me; I am 33-year-old straight white guy who is single. I am a pretty clean guy (no tattoos,no earrings..etc.). I think of myself as a preppy type person. One that like to play golf, tennis, swim. I was wondering is Beverly Hills a good place for me to live? and if so where do the younger people socialize in Beverly Hills? When I say younger, I mean (25–40-years-old either single or living together/married with no kids). Don’t get me wrong; I love kids, I am just not at that point in my life yet. Anyway, any advice you all can give would be helpful. Thank you for your time………

I won't be able to help (I'm just a tourist lol) you with your main question but wanted to give you some advice since it sounds like you are focused on being in an area that you can make friends.

I think the fact that you'd be close to your office is HUGE. So much that it almost should come first before worrying about where you'd hang out (in the beginning). I say that because it's LA. There are places you'll be able to find friends. Maybe not 10 minutes away but def within a realistic time frame. Last thing you want to do is mess up something good when it comes to how close you are to work. If you're just renting you can always change it up later but being far from work in LA traffic is a quick way to become miserable & bad first impression.

It is safe to travel. Come out and take a look around.

In the event that this isnt a troll post (33 yo in AM living in NY, never been to LA?).... sure, why not. You'd probably be fine.

I agree about checking it out as well. Pretty safe to travel by flying.

Agree need to check it out yourself. What one person would love, another may not like. But basically, night life is close by within Beverly Hills, Hollywood, West Hollywood, Santa Monica, etc... Public outdoor tennis courts within a short drive at La Cienega Tennis Center. Plenty of public golf courses in the city. As for swimming, local gym should cover that.

Looks to me like at some time he may have been banned, and came back with a new user name.
