So how does LA compare to 30 years ago in the 80's going into the 90's?
Are things better or worse in your opinion? What is better and what things are worse?

Traffic is worse, everything else is better.

The vagrant population has expanded exponentially in both numbers and areas tent cities emerge. Parking availability along with the general traffic has gotten worse. many small and medium sized hospitals have closed but the large survivors have gotten larger.

Massage has become a real business dealing with therapy and not just a man's penis. Hearing "where you from" while out in public no longer causes a fight or flight reflex. LAPD officers are all on body and dash cams and not so quick on using the batons anymore. New Year's Eve no longer sounds like a battalion is attacking a fire base. With the Rams the NFL is back

Much better.

You can obviously start with downtown-massive additions to the skyline and general activity of the area.

In 1990 Los Angeles had 0 miles of interurban rail, today there is 105 miles.

Another NFL team, 2 MLS franchises.

City of Los Angeles, and in particular Downtown, Hollywood, the West side, and the inner burbs are much improved.

The suburbs with a few exceptions, are worse. Nearly the entire SFV is worse and so are many of the outlying areas that are not part of City of LA, particulalrly the SGV.

If it weren’t for some of the gang problems that popped up exactly at that time(1990) in parts of the SFV and SGV(notably Monterey Park, Rosemead, West Covina, La Puente, Pasadena, Duarte, etc.) the difference would be even more stark.

The valley has grown and traffic along with it. They build and build in Sylmar and more traffic. Sylmar is less of a immigrant town, has gentrified considerably. The goverment is much much worse.

One thing I've noticed is that, people don't need to wake up, before they go-go, because they're not planin' on goin' solo!
