But the problem is, LA has too many damn parking lots! Walking around Downtown, its way too many parking lots!

But to me LA is the most intriguing city on earth, and many people around the world are starting to agree. Some of you guys might not know, but LA is having somewhat of a "moment" right now, a moment that could turn into a pretty nice new identity. I'm graduating with a degree in cultural studies, so I've had to keep tabs on cultural trends. "culture" people- (artsy folks) really like to talk about LA now and how it's a really exciting place to live in because SO MUCH IS GOING TO CHANGE (for the better) AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF IT!
it's not there yet. If you've got a bad pre-conceived notion of LA, then please wait ten years before coming.

Strip malls are endangered species, and its taken a turn for the better in LA.
Also, Boston is Beautiful.
