does that give you enough info? maybe they will go to the beach, disneyland, universal studios, venice, santa monica, long beach aquarium, manhattan beach, hollywood, pasadena, downtown, the grove, griffith observaotry, the galleria, etc.

how many times can you stare at the statue of liberty or a skyline before it gets boring. our beaches and everything else but amusement parks never get boring.

according to the new york sun, 45 billionaires live there, while 1.6 million live in poverty and LA doesn't even have one million below the poverty line. NYC may have more billionaires, but LA blows it away with many more millionaires. 282,000+ live in LA. Chicago is second, Orange County, San Diego, then Phoenix. Harris County, TX; Nassau County, NY; Santa Clara County, CA; Palm Beach County, FL; Middlesex County, Mass. NYC isn't on there anywhere.

I really could care less how many tourists we get. You can have those annoying, clueless suckers.

I don't believe the list of wealth you posted. You're trying to tell me some Texas county and Florida county has more millionaires than NYC? I don't suppose you have a source...

We have beaches and amusement parks. But we also have a skyline, buildings, history, and culture.

Cape Town is a better LA than LA, & Honolulu is a better LA than LA.

That source is coming from a Los Angeles news company. Why would I believe it?

Several large skylines my ass. You guys don't even have one large skyline.

Classic buildings, yeah, 1960s is real classic.

History... Not like NYC, trust me.

Plenty of culture, I know that, but it can't compare to NYC. LA has a lot of things, but I'm not interested in that, this is a thread comparing the two, and when you do that, NYC will come out on top. There's no hiding it, there's no denying it.

is that source good enough for ya.

and i will admit that i think Honolulu has beat LA and NYC. Honolulu is actually my favorite city. it is my dream to someday become rich enough to afford the penthouse at a condo in waikiki beach. but come on, we're not talking about Honolulu.

actually you know what. i'm done with this. LA is no better than NYC and NYC is no better than LA. they both appeal to different types of people. for some, they are not appealing at all. let's just leave it at that people, ok?

NYC has its up and downs, and so does LA. Some may say that LA has more downs or NYC has more downs, but those are just opinions. we shouldnt be arguing over something so stupid. we should both be making fun of oklahoma, kansas, missouri, and those kind of states.

Why would I make fun of Oklahoma or Kansas? What have they done to me?

about the skylines. i didnt mean large, but i meant noticable, like we have more than one. i know NYC does, but not everyone knows that about LA. we have DT LA, Century City, Santa Monica, Long Beach, Riverside, and a few others. but, of course, nothing can compare to Manhattan in the world, so that is not a fair comparison
