L.A. is so unique. In a GREAT way. All the pictures shown above are L.A. city pictures not Metro.

That we know... the world has been known to amaze us...and for our sake, lets hope someone was not corrupt like in China w/ the Sizzchuan schools....
IE: someone took a shortcut so these buildings can only hold a 10.0 in name... and who knows what they can handle...
but anyways...
Nice pics/...thanks for sharing....

Nice pics. I don't think you have to sell Los Angeles to anyone. Most people know that it is an amazing city. The only people that trash talk it are the ones that have probably never been there and are not worth the time trying to convince them otherwise.

Los Angeles is absolutely beautiful! Thanks for opening my eyes to how attractive the City of Angels truly is! Judging by this forum I thought L.A. was just the land of urban sprawl, illegal immigrants, and fake bosoms!

Im pretty sure the majority of all buildings in LA are earthquake proof. Which is why so many Angelinos don't sweat "the big one."

Surprises me to hear that people never thought LA had any density to it.
But then again, its not hard to imagine since most of the LA shots on television, such as when an LA team is playing, they show shots of Santa Monica, Beverly Hills, or Hollywood and not downtown.

What people dont know now is that LA is making major pushes towards density in the downtown area. And I mean major. Laws are getting changed everywhere. The majority of the streets are now one way streets. Taxis can now be hailed from the streets. They are pushing towards making downtown, including the bars and clubs, more prevailant and trying to make it a hotter spot than Hollywood. Condos developments are being built. Alot of the grafitti that was once present is now gone. They are looking to clean up skid row.

In 10 years or so, downtown LA is going to be very different than the downtown LA its known for.
