Lifetime's "Devious Maids," which is set in Beverly Hills, is in fact filmed in Buckhead. So there.

Are you serious? You can walk 10 minutes from Rodeo Drive and be in a single family home neighborhood...that's not consistency. Walk 10 minutes from the 3 districts you quoted and you'll still be what feels like the big city.

Stop being a homer. Everyone on these forums know L.A. is not that walkable...at least not on the level of the top 5 urban cities in the country.

You are something else. Its not about Michigan Avenue or Union Square. Its about Beverly Hills and Buckhead.

I lived in LA. I'm not delusonal like some of you are. Outside of the little BH triangle, it's just single family homes. That's not a consistent dense urban environment that you would see in NYC, Chicago, or SF. I certainly don't feel like I'm in the big city on that google maps link.

Beverly Hills has government subsidized housing. There is no such thing in Buckhead.

You've been a West Coast homer for the longest. It's annoying. You've been boosting L.A. and Seattle to no end and you've created in your head that L.A. is some massive urban city with a dense cityspace that rivals NYC, SF, Philly, DC, and Chicago.

Someone mentioned there are no enclosed malls in BH. Is the Beverly Center considered LA or Beverly Hills?

We are talking about the shopping districts, not the whole city of Beverly Hills. If you want to make this what is more urban, the city of BH or Buckhead then there would be an argument. But not when it comes to the shopping districts.

It's in Los Angeles on the Border with Beverly Hills.

Its Beverly Hills, not New York or Chicago or San Francisco. Beverly Hills is what it is. I don't think the city wants to be like those cities you mentioned. We're talking about shopping districts. Now go back to your room and do your homework or play your video games.
