I am new to Los Angeles. Which neighborhood is best: North Hollywood versus West Hollywood?

don’t be fooled by the “Hollywood” in both the names. These areas are VERY different. WeHo is our gay Mecca. It’s fun, has great restaurants and entertainment, etc. As far as living, the more moderately priced apartments generally tend to be on the older side and don’t have any luxuries. NoHo has better apartments with more amenities, but location is whatever and am generally not a fan of the nightlife there.


Neither. Come down to the true west side.. Culver City, samo, Venice, playa


Lmao north Hollywood is probably the worst part of LA


Studio city is gross to me. Would really try west side

West Hollywood is 100% “better” in terms of desireable neighborhood to live. Better restaurants, shops, more affluent working professionals, etc.

North Hollywood is in The Valley, so I wouldn’t really even consider that in the same category.

East Hollywood is significantly more grimy than either, but with a few trendy restaurants, and you could make a case that it is “up and coming.” But like most of The Eastside (Silverlake, Los Feliz, etc), I’d personally consider it more of a desirable place to visit for an evening out at a handful of specific restaurants than a desireable place to live.


Yeah the valley isn't in the same category, it's way better.

A1 is spot on! I would also add that NoHo might be a bit cheaper in rent.

WeHo 100%.

You are asking the wrong question

How do you deal with explaining why you want to leave your current job when personality conflict is one of the main reasons?

Hi Everyone,
I had my 1 to 1 with my boss on Monday, at which time I brought up the fact that I felt like I was operating above my role of Marketing Assistant and said I felt that I was doing tasks that fell in line of Marketing Manager. After an honest conversation, he said that I fit more with Marketing Associate. He said he'd like me to learn more strategic thinking and leadership skills and recommended I get involved with a local business organization. Any recommendations?

Has anyone done earthquake retrofitting for a house NEWER than 1980? I know it’s a must-do for houses OLDER than 1980. But my house was built in 1988, so it’s not required.

Several contractors provided estimates, in the $40k-$50k range, which seems like a lot of $$$.

Apparently our house has bolts but not enough and not the right kind, plus it needs joist blocking and shear paneling. All to meet codes put in place after our house was built.

Just curious if others have done this.


Realistically, can we expect things to get better in LA County by mid March maybe?
