is london better than places in america? i been posting alot of stuff about nice suburbs with rows of identical houses and stuff like that in the US forums but is there places like that in london? some of you guys probably dont check the US forums so ill try to duplicate the general idea. those identical rows of houses, no crime no gangs no nothin like that. i know london is pretty far over seas (i think) so i know its not near california but keep in mind i dont want places like california no beaches or anything. nobody wearin jerseys unless their a fan and all the stuff like that. if you got pictures of the neighborhoods that would help and dont worry about me ruining neighborhoods im not how i was, i got a job in fixing computers now

Is London a good place for somebody from Caifornia to start over normal what?

London is better or worse than many places in the USA, depending on personal preference.

It is a great place to be young and/or wealthy.

I think that it's very difficult to use the label of better or worse when everyone has their own ideals about what a perfect place is. To me, seeing lines and lines of houses would be an utter nightmare- the whole idea of American suburbia scares me, as I'm originally from a very rural area of America. I used to worry about encroaching development growing up.

Does London have rows of houses? London does have it's own form of suburbia as you move out of the city, but it is nothing like the cookie-cutter, perfectly painted houses of American suburbia. You may find that the houses are even a bit rough in appearance in comparison.

I would recommend that if you are serious about going to London, set aside all preconceived notions of what you think London will be and just go. To me, London is the most amazing city in the world, and there's not a single day that I don't thank my lucky stars I had the opportunity to live there.

I was walking around the streets in St Johns Wood the other day and was amazed at the state of the place.
Loads of boarded up houses and people sleeping on benches in an area where the house prices start at £3 Million and go up to £50 Million.
When I moved to California in 2005 I thought I had made a mistake.
What has happened to London in just a few short years or perhaps when I lived there I never looked that close!!

I'm sorry, but I don't quite understand what you are saying. Do you mean that you would rather not have your children surrounded by other Americans if you were to move to London? I can't say I met too many "American gangbangers" when I was in London so I don't think that would be a primary concern for you.
