Just moved from NYC to LA...need help!

Hi there chowhounders.
I need some advice on where to look for an apartment in LA. I'm having a bit of culture shock just having moved from NYC to LA. I would like to live in a neighborhood that you can walk around, shop, and eat without getting in a car too often. All the hoods that were recommended to me by New Yorkers are a bit too gritty (I think Silverlake has no central hub and it's not very pretty, Echo park seems boring). Any suggestions as to where I should look? I really need a place where there is lots of good food and grocery shopping to be found.

Want to stay up to date with this post?
