And for all of you that say LA is too suburban, take out Manhattan and what do you have?...extremely low density housing. Greater LA is the most densely populated metropolitan area in America.
You're wrong there. If you take out Manhattan, you have the urban state of the Bronx and Brooklyn...not to mention Queens. Block after block of tenements...houses...projects etc

For example...here our the population density of the other boroughs

Bronx: 31,709/sq mi

Brooklyn: 34,916.6/sq mi

Queens: 20,409.0/sq mi

Not Manhattan, but very populated in their own right.

for me i love los angeles as well i hate los angeles, new york i would love to visit the city but not to live. but of all places the best city in the world to me is the bay area hands down. because the reason i say the say the bay area i think people are more up front with you in person. los angeles too many back stabbers and 2 face people. new york i wouldn't be able to tell because i never been there. at least the weather don't get hot like los angeles or new york during the summer. but it depends on were you live at in the bay area it does get hot. plus it's not as crowded like both of these city.....

How come every time I visit this from the first thing I see is New York vs. Los Angeles?

New York is better. Not to say that I dislike Los Angeles. The average person's money goes so much further in Los Angeles than in New York. New York on the whole (outer-boroughs and suburbs included) is definitely more expensive than Los Angeles, and you get far much living space for your money.

In contrast, Los Angeles is more laid back and has "better" weather. New York is more uptight and snobby; many condone certain Los Angelenos for their superficiality but New York is just as bad or worse IMO. New York is more urban and Los Angeles is more suburban sprawl. Traffic is bad in both cities.

But enough of these threads.

Okay.
Los Angeles for me because I like lots of mountains, warm weather and open spaces.
And car shows which can be held year 'round.

i'm a little biased


los angelenos is ok in my book. greater la has a suburban vibe to it though. and rightly so. with such an amazing natural setting, i wouldn't want to touch a thing.

New York without question. There, I can maintain my sense of dignity and integrity. LA is the land of the larks.
