L.A. residents, I need recommendations on nice, safe, chill places to live (rent) in L.A. Husband's job is considering the possibility of relocating us there, and if they do we'd have to move within a matter of 2-3 weeks. So we need to start our research now just in case.
I've never been to L.A. but just tooling around on the internet and Craigslist, we're thinking about the Silver Lake area. What's that area like? Also considering Echo Park and heard that Eagle Rock might be a good up-and-coming neighborhood. We used to live in San Francisco and loved the Castro/Mission area, and Cole Valley, if anyone's familiar with those.
We'd like a diverse type area but most importantly, it should be safe since I walk my dog at night. Husband's job would be in North Hollywood area, so nothing too far away from that.
Where would you guys live (within a working/middle-class income) if you could move?
Thanks for any input!!
