I am a single female moving to North Hollywood from Bakersfield in a month for a promotion I received. I'm looking to spend anywhere from 900 to 1000 on rent.. can go to 1100 if i HAVE to. I don't know the area at all so I'm looking for suggestions or tips on what apartment complexes are in good areas that will fit my price range. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks so much.

Some general advice:

Stay south of Burbank Blvd. (further south, the better - although many of the better parts of North Hollywood are now "Noho", "Valley Village" and "West Toluca Lake")

There are some OK and even good pockets in between Burbank and Oxnard but that area varies a great deal block by block. One street could be perfectly fine and the next one could be dangerous. You'd really need to know the particular street to know if its good or bad. (And even in the better areas sometimes there are a few streets worse than others.)

North of Oxnard - forget it!

yeah majoun nailed it. parts of north hollywood are cool and somewhat bohemian. others, AVOID AVOID!!!
if you have any time, i suggest just driving on and around burbank looking at small places. they will be in your price ranges.

no i dont sorry. i would just get off on the 405 at burbank and drive around valley college and further up closer to burbank (you will pass valley glen, north hollywood, and burbank). some of these areas arent considered north hollywood, but its near it. i would just take burbank the whole time and go down side streets. i like the area around valley college which is called valley glen (i guess sherman oaks on some of the streets though). you are near the 405 and 101, near the mall, near ventura blvd (restaurants, bars, shopping), and its a nice little area imo. im certain you can find a 1 bedroom in your price range in one of the smaller places (which i think are nice anyway).
