90046, 90069 and 90048 are all in west hollywood, the city. i think that 90069 is the only one located entirely (or mostly) within weho. 90048 & 90046 are shared with the city of los angeles. if you look at a map of weho, you'd see that it has a really odd shape to it. i would consider boys town to be the area bounded by melrose on the south, sunset to the north, la cienega to the east and robertson on the west. but i think that it mosty refers to the area around the bars on sta monica bl. i lived there for 8 years so if you have any questions, you may PM me. best of luck.

Go to Google Maps and search "West Hollywood, CA". It'll show the map with a dotted line for the border. At the 3rd from the closest zoom level, it'll show your the border. Zoom out some more and it'll highlight the border in pink.

This. There is the City of West Hollywood and there is the "general area" known as West Hollywood. The Google map show both. The "general area" is from Sunset down to 3rd and from Robertson over to maybe La Brea. The dotted line will show you where the incorporated city is.

I'd say "boy's town" goes a little farther east than La Cienega. Lots of gay bars and restaurants (Marix, Hamburger Mary's, etc.) even East of La Cienega along Santa Monica Blvd. You could probably say "boy's town" extends east to at least Crescent Heights, if not even a little farther to Fairfax.

Yes, I would consider "boys town" to be from fairfax to robertson. East of fairfax there is a considerable dropoff of gay oriented bars, restaurants, etc.. The more desirable sections of the city to live in start from west of fairfax as well.
