search the forums for downtown la, koreatown, larchmont village, miracle mile, los feliz, and silverlake. that should give you a pretty good idea of which neighborhoods you may be interested in living in.

Dan, if you want to be close to your work in USC, what about living near there? Historic west Adams or in or around downtown.

Of course, you have to understand that these are much dicier areas for the most part, still have a long way to go as far as 'gentrification' is concerned, but there are definitely awesome lofts and apartment condos for rent all throughout the downtown area. Rents will probably vary widely between brand new state of the art converted buildings versus older ones, and no doubt block to block since one block could be clean and perfect, and the next block will be Skid Row-esque.

West Adams has amazing properties - Craftsman homes from the 1910's and Victorians from the 1880's-1900.

Rents in either locale will no doubt be less than WeHo's market rates.

OK. Everyone here is suggesting West Hollywood. First of all, this is one of the most congested parts of the city. Santa Monica Blvd. Sunset Blvd Fountain Avenue...the list goes on and on of major thoroughfares that are jammed in the mornings and evenings during rush hour. It is a nightmare situation here when it comes to traffic, period.

West Hollywood is also packed with pretentious, arrogant bastards who are beyond rude and inconsiderate.

The bars and restaurants are just really overrated.

I don't think West Hollywood is that "happening" for gay or straight people. WeHo just has an overblown reputation.

Plus, the number of homeless is exploding...

you must have seen the dude on fountain with the industrial-sized, not-even-at-costco grocery cart that holds all his wordly possessions (which, judging by the size of that thing, are more numerous than my own!) where the hell did he get that thing????
