I'm wondering which one you guys like best. Do you prefer New York City or the Los Angeles area? List reasons why you like which city you picked and why you don't like the city you didn't pick. Picking neither is not a option.

New York City, it just seems that you can make anything out New York. New York City is extremely diverse of course. Mexico City is the largest city in North America. New York City is the largest city in the United States. About 8 million more people live in Mexico City. New York City, however, is probably a much more important city because it contains much more economic, cultural, and international power. (It is the seat of the United Nations) So I would say New York City is the "lmost important city" in North America or South America.

I like the New York scene much more because you can make anything out of the city. Each section of city looks different from the next. You can choose to love it or hate. You will never be bored. People are much more calm then Los Angeles. I noticed that the "L.A scene" guys act like they are all hardcore and the girls are prissy.

New Yorkers seem much more down-to-earth.

Not to mention New York City crime is lower then L.A crime. People in New York City tend to be more social that South California.
Two VERY different cities so it hard to compare.

Of course that is what i've noticed. So different opinions will form .

So in conclusion. I find New York City much more interesting.

Not really a fan of both, but I would say LA since I live here and I'm already used to it. New York's nice to visit, but too expensive and too crowded.

If NYC had LA's climate, then you would have probably the best city in the world.

Im glad it doesnt have L.A.'s climate.

Id also go with NYC. Its just more of a city, which is what Im looking for. L.A. is too suburban-y for my tastes.

New York. There's just so much going on here, it's exciting to be in the middle of it. LA is, as I constantly say, too superficial and, as far as I'm concerned, not as exciting.

Plus, I love the subway.

Agreed.


Los Angeles is my choice. I think New York is incredible, and its fun to visit and I love its urbanity (is that a word??), but I dont think I'd see myself living there. Los Angeles feels more like home.

Can we please stop with these!!! How many NYC vs. LA threads are going to start? A new one starts every day.

And for all of you that say LA is too suburban, take out Manhattan and what do you have?...extremely low density housing. Greater LA is the most densely populated metropolitan area in America.

From Wiki:
Los Angeles has a long-standing reputation for sprawl; however, this reputation is undeserved. As of the 2000 Census, The "Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana" Urbanized Area had a population density of 7,068 people per square mile (2,730/km²), covering 1,668 square miles (4,320 km²) of land area, making it the most densely-populated Urbanized Area (as defined by the United States Census Bureau) in the United States.[6] For comparison, the "New York-Newark" Urbanized Area as a whole had a population density of 5,309 people per square mile, covering 3,353 square miles (8,684 km²) of land area.

Neither city is better. They both appeal to different people and their lifestyles. For me it's LA, but apparently the majority of people on here prefer NYC, which is fine with me. JUST PLEASE STOP THESE THREADS!!! THEY ARE SO ANNOYING!!!
