Not to hijack your thread, but what don't you like about LA?
The smog, the car culture, the pollution, the flakey people, the horrible architecture. This place is an ecological disaster. No one cares about the aethetics of the city at all, it's just build the cheapest piece of sh*t stucco box McMansion or apartment building as quickly as possible. It's overdeveloped and there's no green space. No public transit. I hate having to drive for 45 minutes across town to see a baseball game. It's terribly designed. Easily my least favorite city in America.
