NYC v LA Round 13: Skyline

If you want to read what this series of posts is all about, go here.


So I thought I’d do a pros and cons for each of the cities (NYC and LA) based on 15 categories of my choosing – i.e the kind of things that are important to me about a place that I chose to live. For example, since I don’t have any children, so you won’t see “education” on the list, but I do love to eat sandwiches, so “food” will definitely be on the list.

Keep in mind these are MY pros and cons…pros and cons that I have come to after living in LA for five years (2000 – 2005) and then living in New York for five years (2005 – 2010).  This is intended to be a fun (and funny) list, and is not to be taken seriously, but I hope some of you, especially those of you who have lived in both places (or experienced them) will enjoy it. Come back tomorrow for Round 14.


Is there any question?  Advantage: NYC

    I would actually disagree and say that LA has a more interesting and unique skyline. True, it doesn’t have the kinds of densely packed skyscrapers that NY does but I’d gladly take the view from Mulholland or the Getty over one of NYC any day. The Santa Monica mountains create so many awesome views of the hills, the city, and the ocean. Obviously NYC’s skyline is really impressive but personally I think there is something much cooler about the ways in which LA merges its mountainous and urban landscapes.
