Oh I have been waiting a long time for this, coming from Ny/Nj area I thought LA would be nice (i was forced to come), since i got off the plane it has sucked, For the last 18 mos i have really kept an open mind and this is my synopsis, LA is a fucking pit. The people cant drive, in sunny weather, let alone a light drizzle, during a light drizzle, the city comes to a grinding halt, schools close and people lock there doors, maybe they wouldnt get robbed, carjacked and burglarized if they had the brains to lock there doors, its 2006 damn it, Maybe there wouldnt be gangbangers if law enforcment did anything, LAPD, who are they i never even seen them, i got held up in a tobacco shop and the cops didnt come for 30 minutes, In Ny the cops would come in 2 sec, guns blazing, besides what do you need cops for, every ilegal turn is standard operating procedure here , its perfectly normal to "flipabitch" into oncoming traffic or have two lanes making a lefturn, they say i have an accent, have you ever heard these superficial moron s speak, its coffee, not kafeee! look up the prononce in the dictionary "coow""fe", the people have no brains either everyone is an aspiring actor and has an agent, and most these frauds come from outoftown to boot, so basically what your saying is that you are too rich or lazy to work, and people should pay you to prance around on set all day cause your that COOL!, no wonder this is such a great place, very intellectual people huh? The bus is a NIGHTMARE there is no schedule , well there is but it doesnt come on sced so its useless, the 10 diffrent bus services they have dont connect with out a half mile walk, god forbid you have to take a bus after 10pm, if its more than one bus your lucky to make it half way there, but then you get to walk the rest of the way,(at least the weathers nice rght!) you could call a friend to pick you up if the la-ites thought you well enough to grace your presince, but thats not gonna happen cause locals will not drive more than two blocks away, cause its to far, except to buy more methamphetamine, because it cures that pesky urge to eat, somthing la-ers could careless about. They all have eating disorders anyway even the men.but its okay cause the only thing to eat is mexican food, try getting pizza outhere, unless it has celery as a topping. People here are scum, yeah the women are pretty, but unless your 50, bald, have a belly and drive a german suv, fogettaboutit!, jus cause she's 22 and your 23 and have substance, dosent mean she digs u all she sees is a bank account.another thing, trash is in here, if your whitetrash, blacktrash latin or asian trash "AND" have $$$ too!!!!the chicks flock to you,yes they pick u, theres no wiggle room with this, these freaks ALWAYS beat aroun the bush, there zero chance of somone being straight with you, no, literally, als there all undercover homos here, the guys act straight one minute, next there frolicking around west hollywood in some flipflops or a pr of pink ugz, yes , why , cause everyone in this cultureless hell hole is bizarre, cant dress, where weird shit, act like eccentric, narcasistic bafoons, and think they should get paid for it too.I can go forever with this, Ive been stuck here for months everyday is struggle not to off myself here, i via for normal new yorker who are straight up and have moorals boundries, NEVER AGIN will i live here NEVER AGAIN, i went home for vacation and kissed the FU*&#N ground when i landed. Its like an old guns and roses video that wont end. I will never comeback again!

A massive tangle of highways and roads, also rumoured to contain people and houses.
I spent all weekend in a traffic jam in Los Angeles.

Second-largest city in the United States, after New York City. Located in Southern California and home to about 9 million people in about 4 counties. One of the most (if not the most) diverse cities in the United States. The largest city in California and a major financial center for the Pacific Rim. Competes with New York City as the cultural capital of the United States; most movies and television shows are made in coordinated efforts between Los Angeles and New York, although most movie studios have their headquarters' in Los Angeles.

LA has about a billion suburbs that are essentially considered part of Los Angeles as a single city, although the city itself has only a population of some 3.7 million. Los Angeles is notorious for smog and gang-related crime; seperate inner-city working-class suburbs such as Compton or Long Beach have been made the subject of rap songs talking about the crime levels that have gained some notoriety and earned LA one of it's less-enviable titles as "the Gang Capital of the World".

Fortunately, the beautiful Pacific coastline and the numerous beaches and tropical climate offset some of the not-so-good parts of the city. LA also has an awesome music scene, a great clubbing sector, and countless appreciative cultural institutions such as the Getty Museum to visit that provide the city with a depth, culture and history that are enviable. It's an awesome city. Watch out for the traffic though.
Person who has never been to Los Angeles: Man LA is such a shithole, it has so much smog and traffic and gang-related crime

Me: Have you ever been there

Person who has never been to Los Angeles: No but I saw Training Day

Me: Die please

1. The short version of the full name "El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora la Reina de los Angeles de Poriuncula," which is what the city was originally called.

2. The city that represents California to the rest of the country. In reality, Los Angeles is as dissimilar as it is possible to be from the rest of the state.

3. An amazing city that is resented by people in most other parts of the country for assorted reasons. Supposedly, we're all liberal, weed-smoking, anorexic gangsters who drive around in SUVs with a Starbucks fat-free latte permanently grasped between our manicured fingers and dream of making it big in Hollywood one day.

Okay, maybe not all at once.

LA does have a lot of suburbs, but over time they've all sort of melted together. It is divided roughly into two main regions. The City is south of the Hollywood Hills and The Valley is north of them (there's no definite line, but you usually know which one you're in. I generally go by whether you're north or south of Mulholland. Probably if you haven't been to LA you don't know what I'm talking about). Some sub-cities in The City are West Hollywood, Hollywood, Downtown, Santa Monica, and Beverley Hills. Some in The Valley are Studio City, Pasadena, Burbank, Encino, Sherman Oaks, Van Nuys, and Valley Village.

Truths: Usually you don't see people walking like in New York. We drive. There are tons of freeways. There is a lot of traffic and you have to learn how to navigate so that you don't get stuck on the 10 freeway for six hours. This city is immensely cosmopolitan. We have slums. We have gangs. We have good restaurants. We have many studios such as Disney, Paramount, Nickelodeon, etc. There's smog, but it's just sitting on the horizon, not bothering anyone. In fact, it makes the sunsets beautiful. We're not as superficial as people think. Our public transportation is horrible. Our public school system is broke. Our weather is perfect 99.99999% of the time. If we have more than two days of nonstop rain local news stations start a StormWatch2000 segment. People here are nice. If you pass someone on the street they will say hello and sometimes even ask you how you're doing. We have really nice museums such as the Getty Center, LACMA (Los Angeles County Museum of Art), and the La Brea Tar Pits (better than it sounds). We have beaches. It is not surprising to see someone getting arrested or to sit a table away from an actor/actress at a restaurant. We're pretty laid back people. You will never run out of stuff to do here. I can't think of any place I would rather live.

Misconceptions: Hollywood is NOT THAT GREAT. If you come here you would be better off at The Grove. Many of us are, in fact, aware of the state of humanity. All of the good theme parks are in Florida. Our Universal Studios and Disneyland get old fast. We're not that obsessed with plastic surgery. We don't have big earthquakes that often, though there are minor ones now and then. I've only been in one serious quake, so all you east coast people can stop freaking out.
Los Angeles isn't as horrible as people think it is. In fact, it's probably one of the less horrible cities in this country. I quite like it.

1. Spanish for The Angels.
2. A city located in Southern California. Los Angeles dates back all the way to the early 1500s. Thats even earlier than when the Pilgrims arrived at Plymmouth Rock. The Spanish governed first, then The Mexican government and now the U.S. L.A. became an official California and U.S. city in 1850. Since then Los Angeles has grown to become a city rich economically, culturally, and ideally. The city has everything you'll ever want. Los Angeles's size in area rivals that of New York's and Chicago's. L.A. has several communities and neighborhoods such as: Downtown L.A., Hollywood, the most famous, and Universal City. L.A.'s population consists of four main races: White, Latino, Black, and Asian. Latinos have the biggest influence ,of all the minorities, in Los Angeles. This a big reason why Los Angeles has developed to be what it is. Ofcourse Los Angeles is not all good looks and glamour. When a city like this has all this to offer you bet crime is not far behind. Los Angeles has its share of ruthless, despicable, and fearful criminals, but what major city dosen't have them? The crime in Los Angeles and all the rumors are what give L.A. it's bad name. All there is to know about this is either stay away or come see for yourself. Anyone who bad-mouths Los Angeles either does not live in L.A. or does but can't seem to get around this avoidable problem. L.A. is for those who have the balls to discover what it has to offer them. At the end of each day the sun sets and until tommorow when a new day is to be made.
Guy from Los Angeles : Yes! There's a blue sunny sky. It's a beautiful day for baseball at Dodger Stadium. I'ts gonna be a bitch to drive there, but fuck it!
