We have similar hills in NW IL, which are not categorized as mountains, so I dont think those are mts either. The range in the background definitely has more elevation to them, but the ones behind the bandshell are hills. Small ones at that.

That's because the Hollywood Bowl is at the base of the Santa Monica Mnts. Of course any mountain range has smaller mountains where they begin and taller ones in the center of the range.

LA for me.

NY is great but Id rather live in the LA Area than the NY Area. Better weather, better natural setting and I like SoCal gardens and homes much better. Spanish style and mediterrenean style homes are much more appealling to me.

Not a fan of colonial/ tudor style homes like the kind you find in Greenwich and Long Island-they appear cold and uninviting.

Los Angeles is OK and all, but how can you compare it to New York? It's like a fact that NY is the biggest and greatest in your country!

New York is the most sophisticated and not to mention a city of character - something lacking with most/all American cities. New York is New York, the capital of the world. Honestly, Los Angeles isn't even on the same level.

Milquetoat, nice try but those pictures are very mediocre and Los Angeles looks extremely boring and plain in comparison to New York.

A few pictures of beautiful NY!

I like how walkable NYC is. Much easier to get around without a car.

Great shots of NYC! Its nice to see the hills in the background (the last image), which look just as big than the ones I see in the foreground of the L.A. pics.
