Curbed LA: Los Angeles is the New Queens

Our new left-coast cousin, Curbed LA, picks up on some local scuttlebutt pointing the finger at New Yorkers for the rising prices in hot LA nabes.

Most of these people complained about living in NYC for $2000 a month in a 400 sq ft apartment...voila, they come to Silverlake, and they can rent a 1000 sq ft apartment for half that, which, for someone like my friend, who has been a resident there for like 15 years, was "expensive", but to some yuppie making 80K a year, was a "bargain".
Must be a bitch of a commute, no?
