L.A. is comprised of a million neighborhoods. then there is the Valley, Santa Monica, Pasadena, Burbank, Glendale, etc.

as far as L.A. proper, i'm a fan of the Eastside AKA Silver Lake, Echo Park, Los Feliz, Atwater Village, Eagle Rock, Highland Park.
Hollywood is congested, cheesy, transient, etc etc.
Downtown L.A. is getting cleaned up and looks promising, but after dark, it's still a zombie town.
anything south of the 10fwy is ghetto.
Culver City is becoming the next Silver Lake.
Santa Monica, Venice Beach, West L.A. are too far west for me, but are nice.

what do you do for a living? how old are you? do you have a family? these will narrow it down.
