Same here. Actually I think after LA it is only Houston. All there other cities, New York, Chicago and DC are before LA.


PS. Does the op really think that LA is more cosmopolitan than New York City that the headquarters of United Nations or DC that hosts hundreads of foreign embassies?

Poorly worded poll question, IMHO.
Nonsense. It was simply honest, not poorly worded.

BTW, NYC doesn't rank ahead of LA in the international/cosmpolitan realm. Hence, its inclusion after the one and only, LA.

In a word, yes. The ambiance in LA is much more colorful, varied, and exotic than NYC or DC.

The flavor of LA is much more cosmo and international than NYC. Many areas of LA look like NYC - the reverse simply cannot be said.

LA comes first in this arena, hands down.

Okay, all that information up there still doesn't put LA above NYC though, the reason is because every country in the world is represented in NYC, there are citizens from every country in the world that now call NYC home.

It is the only city in the world that is like that, and some people from troubled states like Palestine and Taiwan call NYC home as well.

NYC is home to the second largest Jewish population in the world, right after Israel. These are all facts, and they can be looked up.

Don't kid yourself kid. NYC is leaps & bounds ahead of LA in that department.

NYC defined diversity.

I'd suggest you review California Sur's information in post #16 in this thread.

Again, post #16. It's LA, then NYC when it comes to diversity. Sorry.

Please.

The urban jungle of NYC is duplicated across most major cities in the US. It's nothing special, and it doesn't stand out. You can find elements of it in downtown LA, easily. And, Chicago might as well be a second NYC.

Can any of those cities match the style and urban landscape of LA? Nope, sure can't! LA is unique - NYC doesn't hold a candle to it.

Now, I'd like to thank YOU for my laugh. Bwahahahaha!

LA owns.
