LA by far. There is really nothing else to debate.

Lol, yeah, the OP will need to clarify that. Maybe they mean how many "Rich Kids of Instagram"-type people they have? Rich Kids Of Instagram

I get the Miami arguments, but I think LA has the edge.

Seems that the first two cities to get outposts for most brands in the U.S. are LA and NYC. Miami and LV are up there too but seem to be behind just a bit.

Anyone who doesn't pick LA is horribly biased. LA is twice the size of any other U.S. metro (excepting NYC), has far more wealth than any other metro (excepting NYC) and is one of the world's centers (arguably THE world's center, at least for Hollywood) for celebrity glamour.

I don't want to get political, either. I will just say don't believe everything you see/read on the Internet. Especially when the "source" is mediamatters!

i voted for la. i think holloywood is more hoity-toity than manhattan with all the celebrities but maybe the whole city comparison would put nyc ahead ?

^ yeah, i know, even i felt like i was sounding like a broken record. i guess i should just shut up until i actually visit there. (i've been to la once as a kid. ended up not driving up to san fran realizing how far it was). but to me san fran is synonymous with something like atlanta. a very large industrialized city important for education and commerce but neither are in the top 3 as far as importance and popularity in the country.
