Not all homes here are haunted. I do not and will not be a part of LAPD or LA. Nothing there interests me. Bunch of ****ing hippies and gays.

So, you're saying there are no new up-to-date homes in NY? Our home is new and up-to-date. This here shows your complete stupidity. You know what, I don't see the point in arguing with you. Your completely unaware of the world.

Next time I go to LA, I'll know who I am. I'll own your city, hold my head high, stick my nose up. We are the largest city in the US, the Capital of the World, the Center of the Universe. We are America. We represent America.

Next.

That's a massive generalization. You don't have to be rich at all to enjoy the best of California's microclimates. There are low income neighborhoods in the city of San Diego that still experience cool weather, and there are low income neighborhoods in the city of Los Angeles close to the beach. Sawtelle and Palms are two neighborhoods in West LA that are still affordable while being close to the beach.

Likewise, there are several neighborhoods in the city of San Francisco that are affordable (Mission District, Hunters Point). You just have to look around.

Next.

i didnt say all the homes are old but most of them are. Even the ones in New York city. the older buildings look good but not the older houses. lol why dont u just skip the trip to LA and just go to chicago .

LA is a city that doesnt Look up to New york in anyway. they do thier own thing. LA is not following You, LA is the trend setter. You turn ur TV on and you see LA, we dont see you. Ask MTV which city they rather show. we dont need MTV, MTV needs LA since there rating were falling.Like i once said many New yorkers are moving to LA and Miami and Jersey or even Atlanta.

If you're talking about the immediate West Coast, Portland and Seattle experience snow each year, while still having mild winters. Aside from the coast, there are MANY towns in interior California, Arizona, Nevada, etc. that get massive amounts of snow in the winter. Flagstaff, AZ? Big Bear, CA? Ely, NV?

Another massive generalization. I'm from the East Coast, I'm half Italian, and some of the best Italian food I've had has been on the West Coast. Who said New York has the best pizza in this country? Personally, I think Chicago's pizza dominates. Chinese food isn't necessarily better on the West Coast, either.

Who cares? MTV? I mean seriously... What does it prove? LA is a trend setter? What trend? The 'teach your dog to do yoga' trend. Oh, or how about the 'eat sushi off a a nude girl's chest' trend? Give me a ****in break. New York is the urban trend setter. Mark Ecko, Tommy Hillfiger, South Pole, Hollister are all New York clothing brands. Music comes out of New York. We're home to 7 of the 8 largest record companies. There are more recording studios in NYC than any other city in the world. LA is the film industry, reality TV... The gay things. Most music is recorded here and sent here. We're headquarters to all Hollywood's bull****. We are the Big Boss city. We basically own all your businesses. New York owns LA.

Well, I'm 100% Italian. Nothing can compare to NY and Chicago Italian food, especially that of the West Coast.

Flagstaff does get snow... Overnight. You won't see a flake during the day. And when dawn hits, the snow turns into boiling water puddles. It's not the same out there.

You're an idiot if you really think that. What stats show that? All you're going by is City-Data posts. New York is gaining more population every day, every month, every year than any other American city.

and second: who wants 100 degree weather? (or above because we all know Death Valley gets hotter than 100 degrees)
The distance from Mammoth Lakes, CA, the area that got the snow and Death Valley, where it was 100 degrees, is only 205 miles. That's less than the distance from NY to DC. You're not going to find that kind of climatic diversity in such a short distance ANYWHERE on the East Coast. Climatic variability in states here in the West have less to do with size of our states than other geographical features (the ocean and mountains, primarily). That's the reason we have such abrupt microclimates, while the East does not.

Some people like 100 degree weather. If they didn't, Phoenix wouldn't have more people than Philadelphia. Phoenix would also not be the fastest growing metro in the country.

Some can certainly like 100 degree weather...and some people can actually like snow. I truly don't see how such opposite extremes in weather in such a small distance, as you put it, is a plus. HOWEVER, if that's what you're into then who am I to say otherwise?
