Does anybody know when the yearly Armenian thing is in Northridge? At the church? Yeah, I know, dumb question for a Northridge resident. I've been there a few times over the years. They've got pretty damned good food!

I'm not familiar with the Northridge event but Glendale has several Armenian festivals & such. I think the Persian weekend festival is somewhere in the west San Fernando valley though many of them live in Beverly Hills\ West LA

You guys know that Los Angeles has more ethnic enclaves in the city/metro than any other city/metro in America, right? Just throwing it out there.

If there's one thing L.A. has, it's definitely diversity and it has always been a strong point in this cosmopolitan city of ours.

There's a little market at 19801 Vanowen, the NE corner of Hatillo and Vanowen. It used to be called Hy Armenian Market but I think the name is different. In there they sell the best Armenian Pizzas called Lahmajoon. Whenever I'm back in LA I stop there and pick up a few dozen. They are killer. I don't think anyone there speaks English so you know they are good.

Don't go to the Armenian Market on Ventura boulevard. Those are frozen and not as good.

would argue ppl hate L.A because its such a force in the U.S ...yet isolated from the rest of the country (east and south)

The same can be said for the whole of California..

They are jealous everything is not all old and decayed like "back east" ...and they hate the faact California has no real "winter" so they made up that whole "i loveee 4 seasons " thing to cover their behinds

I also think they hate L.A/California because of the passive agressiveness that goes on....we dont CARE they are "from new jersey" or "new york"...they care about us more than we do them

Actually I think this is quite accurate.

I don't think people hate LA but just don't get it based off of where they are from. I'll agree with another poster that if you look at some of these forums from other cities you will see that either people love a city or hate it, so it is just not LA. The cost of living is the biggest turn off and drawback to this state.

One of the benefits of LA is the ethnic diversity, appreciated by me because of the great variety of ethnic foods.
I doubt that you even know me to be even saying that. I've been to LA many times. It's just down the road.

Default Adjusting to life in LA

But I don't think anybody is going to call the Valley "the city" and Santa Monica the suburbs.
You've captured it in a nutshell! I've been in LA (San Fernando Valley) for 3 years now and I'm still getting used to it. I'm from Chicago and perhaps, you know how different the midwest experience is from LA. Just as you said, I was used to everything I wanted being in one location or at least a short jaunt away. At first I hated LA and longed for the midwest. Then I finally realized that I'm responsible for making my life the way I want it to be wherever I am. I'm finally beginning to enjoy myself and explore different areas of the city - I'm still amazed over the size of it and feel like I'll never really know it that well, but at least I'm having a good time finding out.
