That's your opinion. Not fact. You're telling me that Mama D's in Manhattan Beach (CA) is worse than an Olive Garden in Mineola (NY)? I don't think so.

Not true. I don't know about you, but to me, it doesn't look like this snow is turning into "boiling water puddles."
YouTube - Flagstaff snowstorm. Flastaff gets 101 inches of snow/yr. on average. That's more than any other major population center Back East, with the exception of Syracuse.

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.


lmaooooooooooooooooo@ South pole. I know new york has alot of nice clothing but those are not them. only the lames wear South pole. yeah u have ur music companies out there but when it comes time to shot ur video you come to LA. album release parties go down in both cities. lol New york owns only chicago. only people from chicago and the east coast for that matter kiss up to New York. LA will never do that. When 9-11 happen the first city that comes out of New Yorkers mouth is LA. Quote While Our buildings were being hit the people in LA were sleeping.
still sad but LA was Mad over that bcuz we are all americans and humans. Face it boy New York always got LA on there mind when LA is not even caring about New York. come to LA and see if they are thinking about NY. LA is in its own world while you New Yorkers are acting like jealous lil girlies

Additionally-
Phoenix's metro area is not only smaller than Philly's, but it isn't even the fastest growing:

I lived in Maine for 55 years, and I have lived in south Orange County, California for nine years. I miss the seafood and nothing else.

In California the weather is lovely year round, and the diversity of terrain makes weekends and road trips incredible experiences. My wife and I love the mountains and the desert. We love to drive to Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and Colorado for the excellent national parks, hiking, mountain hiking, and the absolutely mind-bending scenery.

I wouldn't leave southern California for anything. Being retired does make a major difference. Not having to commute on a daily basis and having purchased our home when the prices were low make it all the more pleasurable.

I do think the east coast restaurants are superior...steak, seafood, Italian, and Asian food are definitely better in Boston and New York..even Portland, Maine than here on the west coast.
