I'm not sure what you're talking about. This makes no sense.

Obviously a comparison between LA and NYC should be city to city, not one city compared to one central business area.

Apples to apples comparisons, folks.

I don't think that's true. I think there's a lot of Brooklyn being touted, too, and a fair bit of the Bronx, and then Queens. Staten Island the least of them all unless you a member of the Wu-Tang Clan (but really, we are all Wu-Tang (and you best protect ya neck)). I believe that while Manhattan is the most well known of all the boroughs, the rest of them are all fairly well known and have their own boosters.

New York definitely has diverse geography. While Los Angeles is mostly cut up by mountains and hills, New York is cut up by the many waterways with the Hudson and East River being the biggest ones that people interact with all day. And while Los Angeles does have its beach, it's not something that you traverse and take notice of for the most part unless you are specifically along the beach.

You're right. What I was trying to say is, compared to NY in January LA's vegetation is pretty lush in comparison. Impatients, petunias, green grass, green hills, flowerin pots, hanging baskets, palms and so on. And yes it is definately about personel preference.

... and in the reverse case, Los Angelenos always tout the Westside.

Not at all. Hollywood is not Westside. Beverly Hills is not Westside. Studio City is not Westside. The South Bay is not Westside.

Nobody cares about South Bay.

In any case, Williamsburg is not Manhattan. Park Slope is not Manhattan. DUMBO is not Manhattan. Brooklyn Heights is not Manhattan.

Really? No one cares about the South Bay. They have some of the nicest beaches and beachside nightlife in the US.

What's so great about park slope or Prospect Park?? Nothing.

I've yet to see one LA poster tout the Westside. All the NYers do is tout Manhattan.

Stick to your overpriced shoe box apartments and homely women.
