Where to live in Sydney? And how to get around in the city?

I'm an American moving to Sydney in January to begin a working holiday. I've never been to Australia so I'm basically just showing up and going to figure most of it out when I arrive, but I would love some advice in advance.

I am an American who moved to Sydney in January 2001. Work takes me all over Sydney and Australia quite regularly. When I travel, I look at different places and suburbs and, while some are quite nice, not one of them comes close to Potts Point... More
