i live here by 7how7
and i like itover 7 years ago
tell me about silverlake, ca. i’ve never been to CA and i have to move there for this internship. everyone tells me it’s pretty inexpensive and nice. are there other parts of LA you like more?
inexpensive? did bill gates tell you that?
Silver Lake was inexpensive (for L.A.) maybe 10 years ago, but then it got cool, and then it got expensive.
That said – there are always exceptions – i live in a rent control apt – two bedrooms for $950 – which is considered really cheap here. I think it is usually $600-$700 for a studio apt.
i’d say you might want to try and live near where your internship is going to be. That way you can avoid driving all the time, which helps make L.A. much nicer. Tell me where your internship is and i’ll try and suggest neighborhoods that might be close and nice.
here are some current listings for apts in silver lake on craig’s list:
There is also a sublet/temporary category you can try if you aren’t goint to be here too long.
