But nonetheless, it's a cool neighborhood and home to one of the LA Dodgers latest heros, Manny Ramirez. East New York is right near Bushwick and Bed-Stuy, where you claimed to have lived... That's kind of strange. You lived right near it but you don't know it?

Do I smell a phony?

My work is done here. Just another faker exposed.
Do I smell someone who doesn't have a damn clue what they are talking about AGAIN?

Do schools in NY teach reading comprehension? Do you actually pay attention to who you are responding to? I've NEVER lived in NYC and I NEVER claimed that I did. That was HAPP, that lived in NYC. Get your facts straight.

Next you'll be selling us on how great life is in the Bronx or Staten Island & Queens.
If that's the case, then everything outside of West Los Angeles is very ugly, nasty and crappy.

Wouldn't you agree?

No, I don agree because west of West LA is the Pacific Ocean & east of West LA includes Westwood\ Century City\ Beverly Hills\ West Hollywood\ Los Feliz\ Pasadena [hardly "very ugly, nasty and crappy." Inland\ east of the South Bay is ugly\ nasty\ crappy since that is where South LA\ Compton\ East LA are located.

You really are a "piece of cake" who distorts & exaggerates facts including the feeble attempt to accuse the wrong person just to score a cheap point. A dog smells his own poop first ["phony" . . . faker."

You should be embarrassed for exposing your lack of credibility & driven obsession with false statements about New York City [people from NY need to call you out on your BS

I AM AN ANGELENO AND I LOVE IT HERE!!!! BEEN TO NY MANY TIMES BUT EVERY TIME I GO I WIND UP HAVING A CONVERSATION WITH A BITTER NERDY NEW YORKER ALWAYS COMPLAINING ABOUT SOMETHING. ITS LIKE YOU PEOPLE ALWAYS THINK YOUR RIGHT! U LIKE NY AND WE LOVE LA, WHO CARES. THE TWO CITIES ARE DIFFRENT AND SIMILAR IN MANY WAYS. AND REMEMBER, LIKE NY LA HAS ITS AREAS. SOME GHETTO, SOME NICE.

THE ONLY THING I HAVE TO SAY THAT IS ANNOYING BEING FROM LA IS ALL THE TRANSPLANTS. IT SEEMS LIKE NO ONE FROM LA IS FROM LA!!!
ITS KINDA PATHETIC WHEN YOUR IN HOLLYWOOD AND YOU SEE ALL THESE CRUMMY CARS WITH NEW JERSEY OR IOWA PLATES. I CAN DEFINATELY LIVE WITH FEWER OF THE 18 YEAR OLD "I AM MOVING TO HOLLWOOD" PEOPLE. THEY DRESS WIERD TOO.

LA IS GREAT AND NY IS GREAT BUT LETS FACE IT, TWO ENTIRELY DIFFRENT LIFESTYLES.

P.S WESTMINSTER IS IN OC NOT LA!!! CITY OUTSIDE LA

Speaking of bad neighborhoods the ghettos in NY are much better and safer than in LA

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_..._by_crime_rate


Anyway we can either continue this in a new thread (NYC vs LA) or continue here.

United States cities by crime rate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
lol uhh no.

What you posted means absolutely nothing in determining which ghetto is safer.

I wont even bother with you. I'll let someone else explain.

I posted that website to show which city is safer. I didn't post it to show what ghetto was safer. I was saying it was better and safer on personal account.

Ok you posted:

"Speaking of bad neighborhoods the ghettos in NY are much better and safer than in LA"

No ghetto is worse or safer than another. The hood is the hood whether its in Boston, Washington, DC, NYC or New Orleans.

From the map you can gather that NYC has more safer areas than LA, and that is the difference in crime rate.

So you can say:

NYC has more safe areas than Los Angeles.
