Got one more pic. Not by me. It was just on my computer so I can't give credit.

It shows that LA IS beautiful and has neighborhoods just like you would find in NYC.

Wow... that would have fooled me. I would have guessed that was a street in New York.

I know huh? In fact, it's called Wall Street in downtown.

Wow! I'm really surprised those structures are still there! Actual brick built next to the other. The only thing L. A. in that picture is the Department of Water and Power signage and what looks like a refurbished black and white

Yep. It's got brick buildings connected, trees losing foliage, people parking their cars AND bikes out front, the signs that hang off the sides of buildings, and fire escapes.

Yeah, I wouldn't want to be in one of those buildings in an earthquake.

I like the Variety that L.A offers...You can be in the City,the Mountains,the Beaches,the Deserts all in a single day....L.A also has Better Weather and Better Scenery.

L.A is also in close proximity to places like Las Vegas,San Francisco,San Diego,Mexico,and Hawaii is just a few hours by plane.
