Do you live in LA?
Not anymore. I live in San Francisco I was born here. But i hate it. It's a hippy city to me. I've never been to long island but it does seem like the san fernando valley from what i hear but with more steet smarts. Not ghetto street but it seems like you would know where you stand with people. What i didnt like about l.a. was the men were a little too metorsexual for me. I love a man that takes care of himself, but i dont need my boyfriend to go get waxed or his nails done with me. Too freaky for me!!!!! It also has a tendecy to be a little too experimental for me. So you never have been to the hamptons???? I thought it was impossible to have a car in the city??? Is it really expensive to park it????

Yea, Los Angelenos are image obsessed people. A lot of them think they're somebody's or they try so hard to act like it. I guess it comes it the terriroty of being in Hollywood. But you run into a lot of people like that in NYC but it's not as bad.

No, haven't been to the Hamptons yet. And it's not impossible to own a car in Manhattan, about 25-30 % of Manhattanites own cars. You just have to make the money to afford to garage them and the high insurance costs, which is out of reach to a lot of people.

They built the houses right to the street, no sidewalks. You cant walk at night all the dogs go off.

The beaches are filled with weirdos and homeless people. You need to drive in the worst traffic in the country to do anything
I got pushed to the ground and burned in the back with a stun gun for J Walking (with no cars in sight and i'm white guy)
A lot of people in the jail were beaten by the cops.

San Diego-Point Loma is nice but there is to much redneck milatary scum. They terrorize and vomit all over whole town

Just b/c some people invade during a couple months of the year doesn't mean it's all been corrupted. Go over there now, or around Christmas, and tell me if you think the same thing. I still like the Hamptons alot, despite some of the nonsense.

Yes, I've never really been there in the summer, to be honest. I go "off times" and really enjoy it. I would give it another chance...you are fairly close anyway.

I was actually planning on a weekend sometime, just to get away. Figured get there early Sat, spend a day in the Hamptons, sleep one night, spend the next day on the NF.

My family has owned a home in the Hamptons since the late 60's. We go out there all the time.

Hamptons is definitely becoming a wannabe Hollywood scene, the diff being that LA is much, much seedier. Mostly what I see in the Hamptons is just drunken LI and NYC kids thinking they are high class.
