Well lets think here NYC overall ranked higher than Los Angeles in Quality of Life, so the most logical thing would be that a neighborhood(especially in Manhattan) has a higher quality of life. You also have the proximity of many great neighborhoods.

Not unless it's a really nice, upscale neighborhood. Speaking of "thinking", just b/c some study says NYC has a higher quality of life, which is subjective, doesn't mean every neighborhood in NYC will beat out every neighborhood in LA in that regard. Have you actually ever set foot in Westwood?

okayyy, I wasn't saying trying to say Greenwich Village wasn't upscale at all and I was there about 6 weeks ago so I know what it looks like.

Again, have you ever actually set foot in Westwood? B/c if you have then it would be easy to realize why someone might feel it has a higher quality of life; it's much cleaner, less crowded, newer looking, etc.. And I'm saying this even though I would actually rather live in Greenwhich Village than Westwood.

No, but I have seen and heard about it many times.
