LA's Problems

Hello all! Im currently living in NYC, Im originally from Tennessee. While I DO like NY, I feel I may like LA more. While Ive never been, I do plan to visit later this year. Before I came to NYC I thought it was perfect and I would love it forever. Well, now I see the problems it has, and my own personal problems with it. So tell me honestly guys, what are LA's problems? Both the main problems of the city, and personally what you dont like about it. Please dont think Im bashing on LA, its not like Im saying "NYC is God's gift to the earth and LA sucks!" Thanks all! :)

I'd say another problem with LA, especially with you coming from NYC, is the lack of integration of the peoples that live here. New York and LA are similar in that they have ethnic neighborhoods, but in LA you pretty much stay with your kind (being race or socioeconomic group or interest group) and don't venture outside of it that often or really even at all. From what I've noticed about the handful of times ive been to NYC is that youre always around all kinds of different people no matter where you are or when you are there. I'm sure there are examples of this in LA, but for the most part, it isn't easy to mingle with people different than yourself, you have to go out of your way.

agreed, Crash certainly exaggerated certain truths regarding LA.
I think the amount of hills gives away that those pictures aren't of Wisconsin. I lived in Virginia for a while and it is also very similar.
