I know there's a thread on here already for this... but I realized I can no longer search for past threads!
Anyway... looking at the possibility of moving to LA for work. What do you guys love/hate about the city?
It seems pretty vast and varied and you have to be in 'the know' to find where to live, etc. Seems like NYC for a motion career (as in a good place to grow), but not good for living.
- AH! I knew I was being stupid in finding this... thanksSigDesign
- Not stupid. The discoverability of QBN's "search" is awful.MondoMorphic
- It's in the fucking menu lol+!%sted
I'm also thinking of moving to LA from NYC.
You can't underestimate the personalities and the vibe between the two. LA can be pretty vapid and laid back. Two qualities that rankle me. Can't deny the quality of life increase though. Influx of hipsterdom from Brooklyn and Portland have made the arts and alt culture scene much more interesting this past decade.
highly recommend drinks at The Perch downtown, specifically their new rooftop patio.
- Don't move to LA if you can't shed the NY uptightness. Just sayin, Most people from other states feel NYk'ers ruin things with the disease they pick up from living in the city to long. This a warning because you put hipsterdom and referenced culture, in which 2 are opposites of each other. thus the warning where you can self reflect so you dont take your unwanted baggage with you. seen happen many times from transplants.yurimon
- laid back is bad?omahadesigns
- I've lived in both places. Detractors on both coasts.MrAbominable
- What yurimon said. Ive been her 18 years from Brooklyn and it took me like 6 years to stop wanting it to work like NY. MY wife hated it for about 10.ArmandoEstrada

- keep in mind this article is from four years ago. Sherman Oaks and Studio City are expensive. If you want a house, try Lake BalboaFawnDog

- It’s cool, I think we are in truce status at the moment.HijoDMaite
b/c of traffic - live where you work. But if you are working downtown but want to live on the west side than consider that the city is finishing a subway line that will get you from the west side to the east side in no time and vice versa.
- i'm replying to a post 3 years ago. ignorehotroddy
i am looking to move to LA as well, feeling it's a decent place (strangely enough) these days. like that the rest of america managed to become so farcical and ridiculous that los angeles actually seems honest and like a place to go.
I mean anywhere on the West Coast is nice.
Miami is cool.
New York is great if you want to live in a live-action documentary about garbage.

- It's true. I'm born and raised in NY.cannonball1978
Is planet ok?

- Let CA pay for not the federal gov. 46% of their revenue already comes from the 1% and in a recession brown's reserves will be hosed in under a year.deathboy
- let them migrate to arizona and texas, just not nevada.deathboy
- and i say this with my sister living in studio city. best thing to leave the cesspool, but still don't want them migrating here.deathboy
- Democrat Party in California are quite proud of this.robotron3k
- and yet every year during the oscars we hear about Trumptard, BLM and #metoo when this shit is right at their feet? lol_niko
- @deathboy while you're not wrong, this isn't the time to cast blame on one party or the other. Nothing gets accomplished when people are too busy pointing fingeronburgundy
- rs at one another. Typhus, cholera, pneumonic and bubonic plague don't give a fuck what side of the aisle you're on.ronburgundy
- i never blamed party. unless in context of a generalization. CA policy is to blame. im saying keep that shit there an migrate eastward pleasedeathboy
- CA problem. their economy is bigger than nations. if they cant solve it dont bail it out with fed funds. clearly pumping money doesnt solve problemsdeathboy
Medication = drugs = homeless.
More info. There aren't political sides here. Just a problem to solve. It's crazy, I feel pity for these people but on the other hand do we want to stop the city from cleaning up the area? No cleanup means you're on your way to becoming a slum.
$430M in the budget on homelessness.
Homeowners in the neighborhoods fighting loudly to prevent shelters from being built, all but guaranteeing the problem won't get solved. They argue that it will bring more homeless people to the area, which is some crazy logic. Some aren't even arguing the financial point. They are literally arguing that solving the problem by giving these people homes will somehow create more homeless people.
- coming soon, the favelas of LA_niko
- but who's got money for their own citizens when you have $100 billion you need to spend on weapons to stop Iran from doing something or other._niko
- 100's of millions of dollars are spent on shelters and the homeless refuse to access them. You are dealing with a political class steeped in 3rd world ideology.Hayoth
- strange, we have homeless here who would rather sleep on the street in -40c weather than go to shelters._niko
- ^^ it's like that everywhere, shelters are rarely safe.spl33nidoru
- It's not LAs homeless problem. It's the USAs homeless problem. LA is big so it has services that make it easier than living in a field in Nebraska.monNom
- The solution probably looks more like bringing manufacturing back the the USA since it is so reliant on labour. Shelters just hide the problem out of sight.monNom
- Not that a shelter isn't useful. It's just not a solution to the underlying conditions that lead to homelessness in the first placemonNom
- put homeless people in empty buildings and give someone a job overseeing their living there. oh wait, that doesn't workimbecile
- They have 3/4 of a Trillion in surplus so no problem.robotron3k

Just rented a house in glassell park and I love it. As someone who has lived in both LA and NY, I loved back west because the rental market is less competitive with much more band for my buck. It puts me in a great position for house swapping when I do want to be in New York, and in much nicer places than I can afford to rent there.
LA is a shithole.
