The best city in the world. Exciting. Is there life beyond LA? I doubt it. Not at all dangerous, felt safer on the streets of LA than I do in my city of Auckland, New Zealand. LA-ites say "love your accent, so like, where are you from?" My answer is always Utah - and they seem to buy it.
Gang members on Huntington drive asked me to tank their car for free (because of my accent I guess I sounded like a tourest) I to them to go away in Maori (Native New Zealand) and they drove off. I think LA gangs get a bad rap - not as bad as their rep
Not a pretty or charming city.
Many languages spoken here, many people/cultures live here.
Population of Los Angeles (city) is about 4 million and Los Angeles County about 9 million.
L.A. is not pretty to look at.
Los Angeles - It seems that everything of cultural importance (or nearly everything) in the U.S. revolves around what happens in two places: New York and Los Angeles.
Regardless of the above, I prefer New Orleans, San Francisco, and Boston.
city of angels. Where celestial understanding is essential to absorbing the energy of the greatest city on earth. Screw the haters!
A giant city, cool place. But a lot of gangs and crime.
Second largest city in the U.S.
Ok so where do I start? Los Angeles is the greatest place on Earth to me. This is the place that my parents chosed to come to America. They have made no regrets about it. It is diverse and feels like home. Being a Chinese American, I can honestly say that I have not lost touch with my culture because of Los Angeles. It may be sprawling and smoggy, but I still love it. I love the perfect weather and the blue skies. I love the breeze, especially in the summer. I love sitting on the beach watching the sun set over the horizon. I love the diversity of the people and the culture. Best of all, I love Mexican food. The Mexicans here are very nice and hardworking people once you get to know them. Their culture is so wonderful and fascinating. There are plenty of Hispanic/Mexican culture here in L.A. Ok fine, LA might not be what you see on TV like The Hills, Melrose Place, 90210, but what I like about it is that its not the most perfect city like what you see on television. Nevertheless, its still a wonderful city with many great things to do. Another thing I love about L.A is its diverse land and geography. We have hills, mountains, coasts, valleys, and deserts. You can go surfing on the beach one day and in the next hour, you can play in the snow up on the mountains. We have almost all the climate that is suitable for anyone. On the coast, it is very cool but the more inland you go, the hotter it gets.
I love Los Angeles!
Los Angeles is the city that is loved by many others.
Reply to: the Palos Verdes kid who thinks that she knows what LA is all about living in the valley.more...
A) We have social diversity.Not everyone in LA is weed smoking high school dropout.
B) Ever been to the business district? I'd like you to introduce me to these "soft people".
C) The immigrants arent all negative druggies. I bet the theyre probably better people than you.
D) Crime is not something taken lightly.
E) Theres traffic in LA. Our city has the second biggest population in the nation, so logically, there should be a lot of traffic.
F) We are not all superficial. We have a lot of dreamers and a lot of people who believe in their dreams.
G) No one has a poodle in LA. Period. That's just- no. We don't like poodles. Except maybe you. Btw you sound very bitter.
H) Um, what sky are you looking at? The one I see is actually very blue. Beaches arent often closed due to pollution. What's negative about smoking being banned at the beach?
I) Homosexuals & people with HIV exist eveywhere. That's no secret. Also, hate to break it to you, homeless people are everywhere.
J) Violence is a problem everywhere.
K) Violence is NOT a problem at schools in LA. Also, people at my school have a 3.5 average. So HA!
L) Homes cost a lot cause theyre historical.
There's LOADS to see her. Tons of places to visit around the Stars Walk of Fame. LA is the only city that represents every ethnicity.
Dont talk crap about my city. K? K.
Go fall in ditch (:
