by Anonymousreply 44November 27, 2021 2:50 AM

Pro: You can go out in the day and night without driving - rare for life in LA

Con: Hard to park easily and far from freeways

by Anonymousreply 1November 21, 2021 12:00 AM

The are some real pros there.

Some real cons too.

by Anonymousreply 2November 21, 2021 12:03 AM

Ain't that the truth, r2.

by Anonymousreply 3November 21, 2021 12:06 AM

You won't find any homosexuals there.

by Anonymousreply 4November 21, 2021 12:06 AM

Con: most of the residents.

by Anonymousreply 5November 21, 2021 12:09 AM

Pros: there’s a lot of hot dick and butt


by Anonymousreply 6November 21, 2021 12:12 AM

Everyone in West Hollywood is a miserable cunt. It's bizarre how miserable everyone is.

by Anonymousreply 7November 21, 2021 12:14 AM

R7 agreed

by Anonymousreply 8November 21, 2021 12:16 AM

Pro: Julio, who lives on N. Harper. VERY professional - and affordable.

Con: Julio's brother Simone, who lives with Julio, did three years. Also affordable, and/but a little rough, if that's your preference or not.

West Hollywood is one of the few parts of LA - and even the state of California - where there is activity seven nights a week.

Every night there are people at restaurants, bars, walking dogs, jogging, at the grocery stores. Much of Southern California is made up of early-to-bedroom communities.

If you like a variety of neighbors, don't move to West Hollywood. It's a Gay Ghetto.

My friend (he died) used to live there, but he moved to Miami. He said the tacky, criminal Russian and Albanian element had made living there awful.

Is that true?

You may bump into Bret Easton Ellis.

I think it’s the most NY walkable neighborhood in LA.

by Anonymousreply 15November 21, 2021 2:12 AM

R15 - and that's important. Most of the rest of LA, you have to drive everywhere but then...there's no parking! Fucking nightmare.

Is Book Soup the best store in WeHo?

The WeHo Public Library is nice

by Anonymousreply 19November 21, 2021 4:58 PM

Where is good people watching in West Hollywood during the day?

Only since Circus of Books closed.

by Anonymousreply 21November 21, 2021 4:59 PM

The street scene isn't all that lively most of the day and most days of the week. Granted the bar is low in LA.

by Anonymousreply 22November 21, 2021 5:02 PM

If you live there parking is not such a big issue. It's very walkable and public transportation is good.

by Anonymousreply 23November 21, 2021 5:22 PM

Are there any lesbian bars in Weho?

by Anonymousreply 24November 22, 2021 12:47 AM

r23 The only public transportation in WeHo is the bus.

I live o the east coast, so just wonfering how small Weho reeally is. Like a Cambridge, MA?.

LIve at 999 Doheny and I love it - Close to everything

R28 are you hosting for Thanksgiving?

by Anonymousreply 29November 22, 2021 6:38 PM

Though WeHo has a somewhat definitive western edge at Beverly Hills line, the eastern edge blends with Holllywood - so Cambridge analogy doesn’t quite work. Maybe DuPont circle in DC where the western edge becomes purely residential in Kalorama. The gay area is more defined though - maybe 7 blocks by 6.

And the free Cityline shuttle.

R13, I think he must mean Armenian instead of Albanian, but they're more in East Hollywood, Glendale, and the Valley. But yes, West Hollywood does have a significant Russian-speaking community.

I assume A LOT of DataLoungers live in West Hollywood

More crime now

by Anonymousreply 34November 24, 2021 5:04 AM

The Russians here suck. They own a bunch of fake store fronts on santa monica between Fairfax and La Brea that need to be annihilated to make room for actual new businesses. They’re all collecting money from the government too.

by Anonymousreply 35November 24, 2021 5:41 AM

“Gay ghetto,” and everything it entails.

by Anonymousreply 36November 24, 2021 6:34 AM

The Russians have been there for decades. Nothing new.

by Anonymousreply 37November 24, 2021 4:32 PM

The egos are huge and narcissism is rampant.. I don’t know anybody in a monogamous relationship or a relationship for that matter.

by Anonymousreply 38November 24, 2021 4:35 PM

Pro: Lots of "gorgeous" men

Con: You're invisible if you are just "good looking"

by Anonymousreply 39November 24, 2021 6:47 PM

What's going on in West Hollywood tonight?

by Anonymousreply 40November 27, 2021 12:47 AM

Pros - It still fun.

Cons - Str8s took over 10 or more years ago. Tons on them with their kids taking up a lot of room. Plus, single str8 chicks only think of gays as play toys for social media. " Like, look everyone. I'm into equality!"

by Anonymousreply 41November 27, 2021 12:53 AM

Pro: it's close to airports

Con: everything else.

by Anonymousreply 42November 27, 2021 1:03 AM

WeHo is close to airport? Hmmm - not sure about that.

by Anonymousreply 43November 27, 2021 2:28 AM

70% of men who live there are plastic surgery victims or play hard with injections. Mostly younger gays now.
