Simple question. Would you guys consider LA to be a world class city on par with NYC, London, Paris, Tokyo? I would consider it so. If not, what's it lacking?

Excellent. Glad to hear Angelinos consider their city a world city.

The snobs who consider LA to be "fake" think it's not on par with NYC or Paris or even Chicago or DC.

Well I'm not an Angelino but I should think by any reasonable, objective measure LA would be considered a world-class city.

It has worldwide draw, but it is important to note that it's the entire area that is part of the draw. For example, the city of LA doesn't have world class surfing, but the area does.

L.A. is definitely a world class city, but I think it is a notch or 2 below below those cities named. LA is probably 3rd or 4th most important in America after NYC, DC and maybe Chicago or SF. LA is not a world financial center like Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore, NYC or London. LA is not home to the most important art collections like Paris, London, NYC or DC. LA is not a major place for global affairs like NYC or DC or other world capitals. LA is capital of worldwide entertainment: HOLLYWOOD.

Washington D.C. is a "world class" city?

As is Chicago - which I hope to visit next year.

May my perceptions be affirmed by reality.

If you're going to keep positioning yourself as LA's newest booster, you should probably learn to spell "Angeleno."
