Possible job transfer coming up & I'm seriously considering it. :hmmm:

What can y'all tell me about it?? I'll be working out of LGB airport, so anything AROUND that area information wise is helpful too.

I've flown out of LGB before...smaller airport...easy to maneuver. As for Long Beach itself, you'll want to go further north to live. Santa Monica maybe...or Marina Del Ray.

My impression has been that Long Beach isn't the greatest place to live in the world, but like kepp said, there are nice areas that aren't too far away. No idea what they cost, though.

I often go to Newport Beach, which is about 30 minutes (I think - could be further) south of Long Beach, and it's a very nice area. However, you might be looked down upon if your butler is from the wrong part of England.

I was in Newport Beach last month you're right it's really nice. People there were pretty cool. As for the posters question. I'd recommend Hunington Beach or something south of Long Beach.

I hear that Inglewood is a fine place to reside provided that you are "up to no good."

My biggest problem with LBC is all the drama. It's kinda hard being Saul G double-O D.

If you listen to everyone around here (mostly those from MO) you'll likely turn gay, give half your paycheck to PETA, the other half to Mexicans, get shot and then fall into the ocean upon moving to Long Beach.

This. If I had to live in that area, I would look towards the northern part of Orange County, no matter what kind of commute I had. Just really love the area, mountains, beach, chill etc. Pricey, but it is worth it to me.

This seems to be the general consensus. It would be a good opportunity for me and I've grown sick of NYC. The one thing holding me back is the traffic. I seriously get so enraged here in NYC, I don't know what I'd do with Cali's traffic.

It's certainly a good place to be shot.

Belmont Shore is a good place to live if you can swing it.

In fact, if you map it, it probably has planes flying over it at an altitude of 300 feet all the time. It's half a mile directly off the end of the runway. With a really big hook and some oxygen you could probably fly for free.

I fly for free anyway so no need for the hook :p

I just don't want to have a big commute of 30+ min without traffic. I would like a change and just move but I don't know anyone there.

Very little courtesy for the common man in SoCal. It was fine for 4yrs but I wouldn't want to live in CA for the long haul. Long Beach isn't bad but not great either. Kind of a dirty beach city with good parts and bad. It's true, Orange county and san Diego is where u want to be but work must be close because traffic is HORRIBLE! Good luck.
