Default New York Is Better Than LA

LA feels like I'm dying inside, maybe it's NYC diversity

The palm trees in Los Angeles are not indigenous to the region, either. See Ben Hecht for inspiration.

I love New York City. Been visiting every year, multiple times per year for decades. no way, LA holds a candle... except for the weather. that's a huge + for LA, if you can breathe.

Why doesn't Apple, Amazon or Netflix just buy up the 4 big NYC film studios?

Kaufman-Astoria, Steiner Studios, Silver Cup Studios, and Broadway Stages

I might get gangbanged for saying this but LA is mostly a shithole (with a few nice pockets). The city has become unlivable for the average joe with a family. I can see the appeal if you're rich or are becoming rich working there but otherwise it's not worth what it costs. If I was that rich I'd still move somewhere else anyway. Maybe have a dinky condo there on the side for work.

I would love to see NY someday.

As a native New Yorker who grew up there, but now lives out of state, and who knows the real estate market in NYC pretty well, I can say with confidence that NYC is out of the reach of most save for millionaires.

Back in 2008, my daughter rented a studio apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn for $1650/month. Now she spends the same for a house in Los Feliz, with off-street parking and yard.

I get that NY is absurdly expensive, but $1650/month to rent a house in Los Feliz? Hmm. The average house for rent in Lancaster, Rosamond, or even Victorville is around $1800 a month (quite often more). Something's not adding up here. Maybe she's been in that unit for many years.

It's a back house, so her landlords (the owners) live in the front house. She's been living there for around four years. Rent hasn't changed since she moved there. And though it's a small house, she has a bedroom, living room, kitchen and laundry room. And a driveway for her car.

Sounds like a cool set up then. Good for her.

I like poking around on the realtor.com app. Having looked at rents in Los Feliz (whether apartment or house), it appears that she got an insanely good deal.

Strongly disagree. New York is even more crowded than L.A. with more people and less space.
