It is its own thing. However, I think that laidbackness is closer to Chicago than it is to NYC.

What exactly is there to dispute? You made a pretty baseless statement without any facts or reasons to back it up. What exactly makes the LA CSA so "seamless and contiguous" compared to Chicago or other cities' CSA? Why does it function "much more like a metro" unlike the others?

I honestly doubt it's the number of commuters. The census provides commuter number for cities. I haven't looked at them in a while but I would be surprised if the percentage of commutes to Los Angeles is significantly higher than most of the larger cities.

Well for Los Angeles, CSA population tells the real story, just like SF/SJ CSA are seamless and contiguous, just look at a map my fellow CDer.

Los Angeles may be closer to New York City population # wise, but it's much closer to Chicago than New York once you look at actual performance of each city in terms of wealth, corporate base and output.

GDP
NYC - 1.6 trillion
LA - 900 billion
Chicago -600 billion

Fortune 500 companies
NYC -84
Chicago - 29
Los Angeles -22

High Net Worth Individuals
NYC - 898,800
Los Angeles - 330,000
Chicago - 243,300

The Census Bureau does not count all of Los Angeles CSA as part of the MSA for a reason. I'm sure you could write them on how seamless and contiguous it is and attempt to persuade them, but I venture to say that the exurbs fail to meet the criteria to join the MSA. Good luck with your letter.

Way to prove my point yet again.

What exactly do you even mean by seamless and contagious here? Is that whole LA suburbs are denser than suburbs elsewhere in the county so they are somehow special because of that? Who the hell cares again that a bunch of mundane suburbia happens be a somewhat denser than your typical one?

In fact, why is it even suggested that should be seen in a positive light instead of a negative one? Considering it kind of beats the whole purpose suburbia, wide open spaces to raise a family and all that.
