Maybe learn to spell, champ, before you take a nose-down view of the others.

What wall? We don't need a wall when we have the mountains blocking the LA Basin from the rest of the United States. Just block the mountain passes along i15, i5, i10,
Yeah, because those freeways aren't logistical nightmares already, let's install checkpoints on them and grind the entirety of Los Angeles to a complete halt. Good thinking.

We can learn alot from NYrkers.. We don't have to be NY, but we can sure learn some better ways.

Seriously, our lifestyle is pure insanity.

Your model is a city that considered congestion pricing for tolls to relieve traffic, where people can pay $100's to $1,000's a month for parking, and where the Cross Bronx Expressway and the Long Island Expressway are referred to as "the city's largest parking lots", where the apartment vacancy rate is less than 3%?

Also:

(From Numbeo.com)
You would need around 7,232.93$ in New York, NY to maintain the same standard of life that you can have with 5,300.00$ in Los Angeles, CA (assuming you rent in both cities). This calculation uses our Cost of Living Plus Rent Index to compare cost of living. This assumes net earnings (after income tax).

Consumer Prices in New York, NY are 26.68% higher than in Los Angeles, CA
Consumer Prices Including Rent in New York, NY are 36.47% higher than in Los Angeles, CA
Rent Prices in New York, NY are 49.29% higher than in Los Angeles, CA
Restaurant Prices in New York, NY are 25.77% higher than in Los Angeles, CA
Groceries Prices in New York, NY are 29.58% higher than in Los Angeles, CA
Local Purchasing Power in New York, NY is 14.44% lower than in Los Angeles, CA


OR

(From LA Curbed)

Not to say that Los Angeles, the city we both call home, is a prohibitively expensive hell. Compared to a place like New York City, it may as well be Omaha. While a recent New York Times writer's claims that a two-bedroom bungalow in Echo Park can be procured for a tears-of-joy-inducing $1,250 per month are completely and utterly delusional, the fact that the average Angeleno can afford to live in something larger than the glorified closets their New Yorker counterparts inhabit is an undeniable fact. (SPOILER ALERT: Los Angeles wins, hands down.)


Also, please remember we have tons of bridges and tunnels that already back up to a crawl. so setting up checkpoints to keep people out would be no problem.

So, good luck with that.

Alright, calm down. That's a bit extreme. I'm sure there are more reasonable options.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.
