I like poking around on the realtor.com app. Having looked at rents in Los Feliz (whether apartment or house), it appears that she got an insanely good deal.
She got lucky. Prior to this she shared a house in Silver Lake, then rented a back house in Hollywood, then a friend was getting married and moving out of the Los Feliz property. She took it over.

I'm partial to NYC but appreciate LA, too. New Yorkers are more genuine and New York is a FAR more walkable city. LA is cheaper to live and has amazing weather. Both cities are incredibly diverse.

Netflix is building a huge studio right now. My Netflix show shoots in NY, as do others. There's a 30% rebate on the under the line budget... It's not impossible to shoot here, luckily. This will be the third show I've shot in NY in the last five years.

Thanks for setting me straight. Had no idea. I know friends are bailing because of taxes. That'll teach me to assume.

That's a bit of an understatement When I was lucky enough to be living in Manhattan, my car was my Metrocard. I walked everywhere or took the subway and it was tremendous. Can't wait to live there again, I'm hoping it hasn't returned to Dinkins era bullshit before I get there.

One of my earliest impressions of New York City occurred when my parents took our family to a movie called The Out of Towners (1970), a “fish out of water” story. One of the scenes reflected the mountains of trash created by the city’s garbage strike of 1968. My young age and impressionability, as well as initially not a resident of a city, caused that image to remain vivid in my mind’s eye to this day. Such is the power of cinema.

Not really. Depends on the borough. In Brooklyn, there's a lot of new residential buildings being built. Also, Queens and Staten Island are more suburban than urban.
