And please, can you try writing legibly.


l.a. is being redesign now and has shows the future in this nation and has more attractions guaranteed more things to do

Like I stated in another post, LA and NYC can't be compaired. They are two completely diffrent cities.

San Fran you could at least compare. I agree with the apples oranges. Funny, to most on here they consider LA only West LA and Orange Co(which is not LA at all). The rest seems to be invisible for some reason. Kind of like when Manhattanites only consider Manhattan and ignore the rest of the city. Non-white areas are non-existent to people on these boards. It seems like West LA and the tourist areas or nothing at all but there actually is more w/o shifting focus to the OC(which is not what television makes it out to be for the most part). There are tons of poor and immigrant areas in Orange County especially inland.

Never been to LA (at least not yet) but I long to visit. I just want to see all of that beauty up close and personal. California is a beautiful state, as is New York. NYC has Central Park, the cultural arts, and trendy neighborhoods. LA has the beach, the laid-back vibe, the beauty and its own trendy neighborhoods.

I'm a Native New Yawker and I don't like to compare my city to any other. I like to appreciate wherever I am and the differences from one place to the next. So my point is, I just wouldn't compare the two.

New York is one of the greatest cities in the world, if not the greatest. You say New York around the world, everyone knows what it has to offer and what it represents. LA is a great city but it is not NYC no matter what they do. Jay

In my opinion no native New Yorker belongs in or can ever adjust to Los Angelos. It’s a different world, you cant do anything without a car.
Walk and they bust you for J-walking.

S California also has perhaps the worst justice and roadway system in the world.
Girlfriend and I got stopped for simply walking at night, because we made peoples nasty dogs bark.
On another ocasion we were thrown out of a Sushi restaurant and beaned with a rice balls for asking for California rolls. The Mexican's "cat call" woman and young female school children
- -its truly a nuthouse.

Look what happened to Paris Hilton !

Lived in both. Personally I love both cities for different reasons. Ny gets the edge imo. 4 seasons plus fall in NY is like no other. And what would be better than spending the holiday season in NY. Culturally, architecturally, historically, nightlife I like NY.

Agree.

This is as pointless as comparing Dallas vs. Houston. I could scream hoarse why Houston is MUCH better than Dallas, err...DFW.
