No. It's 30 dollars to experience 4 levels of skyspace LA, a ride down a 45 foot slide you wouldn't experience anywhere else, and a gorgeous view of the city fitted with a very tasteful restaurant. Stop downplaying it.

No he's right. It's pretty stupid - unless the meal is included.

Yes, it's built up like many other US cities, but don't have the height to make it look "dense" in skyscrapercity definition.

L.A. Compared to New York, the density is nowhere near the skyscraper level. Of course New York is older than Los Angeles so more ppl more history
