Any thoughts on commuting from santa monica to downtown?
I wouldn't live in Santa Monica and work downtown. You'll be dependent on the 10, which can be a nightmare.
Check out Hancock Park or even West Hollywood, which will allow you to avoid the freeways. Your commute would be taking Beverly until it turns into 3rd street and takes you straight into downtown. 30 minutes max.
