Much of it is yes. Unless you go to Long Island or are literally RIGHT outside the city.

Just off the top of my head, you bragged about being accepted to BC, which is an accomplishment, but it was sort of unrelated to this thread. And also, your thread about the New York City skyline started out with a tone that seemed combative towards L.A. and ended with something about your father being a lawyer for a construction company.

Just try to tone it down on the ego, please.
My acceptance into Boston College had plenty to do with the thread. People are all over my ass for being "stupid" so of course I'm going to use that as a perfectly logical defense. I posted the New York skyline thread to be combative towards the LA skyline thread to prove a point that this is the GENERAL US section and they should be put up in their respective section. If I want to see photos of Boston, i go to the Boston section. What makes LA so special that it deserves a thread in the General US section?

Yeah honestly. If he wanted to compare he should have done NYC vs LA suburbs. Our suburbs are just as long and cookie cutter as LA, our house's were just made in the 1950's instead of the 90's. But honestly I think LA's suburbs look way nicer than NYC's.

East Coast and West Coast both have their pro's and con's. It's up to YOU to decide which one is the best for you. But give them both a try, chances are you'll like 'em both.

Well not to be a dick but LI isn't exactly known for its glamour. It's obvious why you think that way.

Correct. Perhaps overkill on my part trying to make a point to some previous thread participants..
