Only in an LA thread do you get people who feel the need to compare Los Angeles to other cities with pictures included. What is it about LA that provokes people to always be so critical of the place? Surely every city can be criticized but I really doubt that if this were a Chicago, NYC or even a Mumbai thread would you have folks providing pics of cities that may have taller buildings but in no way even come close to the sheer strength, size of economy or influence that LA does. No other city that has been compared to LA in this thread has done as much as LA has in a mere 100 years, from ranchos and orange groves to Alpha City status and an economy larger than many countries. If you want to make an LA bash thread then make one but why come into a thread that is obviously meant to praise the city and attempt to tear it down? Why are those cities that (need not be named but we all know who they are) become so insecure when LA is mentioned?

Wonder why? And of course this is nothing new. For as long as there has been a Los Angeles it has been criticized or always thought to be on the brink of some major disaster that would wipe it out. Even when it was smaller than Chicago in sq miles before acquiring the San Fernando Valley and even when it had the largest mass transit system in the world......it was still criticized....but yet it has pressed on, grown and to this day continues to defy the odds, with both warts and radiance.

Their are every type of people in lots of cities........it seems to be some sort of insecurity on the part of some cities needing to compare themselves with LA.

(pictures form forumer phattonez)

Wilshire Blvd.




the first two of wilshire look a little like Mexico City, except better organized. I just mean the way little clusters of buildings are set apart all over the city.
