Not for everyone - 11/4/2018
This review is about SoCal in general. This is not a dream place! I grew up in the bay area in the 80s. The bay area changed too much so I moved to SoCal. At first it is ok but there are a lot of negatives. First, there is no climate. It is basically sunny 265 days and the more inland you get the hotter it is. Winter for the most part is wimpy. The weather cycle is unpredictable because you will have a recurring cold winter once every 4 years other times it'll be 85 degrees on Christmas day. A lot of the inland cities around LA are much like Sacramento as far as heat. Places like riverside and inland empire are basically hell. This whole LA basin is the beginning of the desert. Once you travel about 30 miles away from the coast it is the beginning of what they call the low desert, then the high desert.. this type of climate eventually dumps into the desert of Vegas and Arizona. The people are friendlier in the beginning, more than the bay area but don't let that fool you.  Read More

40 years ago maybe.. - 9/24/2018
A tangle of squabbling 3rd world minorities, along with a healthy helping of hoards and hoards of homeless, crumbling infrastructure, parched landscapes, along with Chinese "investors", (air b/b speculators), squeezing middle class out of the housing market, all makes for an unsavory recipe. 100 miles of faceless strip malls in every direction. An impending sense of doom and alienation hangs over like a pall. Read More

The Grand Illusion. - 8/8/2018
I was born in Carson California, grew up in Torrance, and Lived in and out (no pun intended) of Los Angeles. Moved away in 09/10. If you're thinking of moving to that place. It's a shit hole don't do it. Over priced living. I now vomit at the thought of even landing in Los Angeles to see old friends. They're the only thing that make it worth it,so.... Either way I can only stand being there for 2 days before I just need to get the fuck out of that junkyard.

Positives. The food... I think that's it.


Cons everything else.


If you have a home there. Sell it go buy 3 or 4 in some other state. Use the money from the properties you rent to visit California and laugh at your friends for overpaying for a house or apartment. Read More

Crowded and overrated - 7/7/2018
Lived there for 27 years. I just left LA for Lancaster, Ca. I worked in downtown and commuted from Boyle Heights. It was a 10 min drive without traffic (hardly ever seen that) but of course with traffic it was 30 mins normally. The rents keep increasing, the utilities grew along with it. There's always traffic everywhere you go. The homeless population is growing and the mayor does nothing. Everyone wants to be in LA but you have no idea what it is til your there. I miss only family other than that, Lancaster is peaceful and Read More

HELL ON EARTH - 6/2/2018
KALIFORNIA. A CESSPOOL. HELL ON EARTH. LA IS THE CITY OF DEMONS AND LOST SOULS AND FAILED PEOPLE. THE MOST SHALLOW, GREEDY, SUPERFICIAL, FAKE, MATERIALISTIC, EVIL, RUDE, ANGRY, HOPELESS, RACIST, IGNORANT, BACKSTABBING, GREEDY, FAKE, WANNABE, POSER, CORRUPT, PEOPLE ON EARTH. Read More

Better then most - 4/1/2018
Crowds and traffic are not as bad as most major cities. Weather is great as well was entertainment options. Cost of living is medium- high compared with other major metro areas Read More

Could an American city be more overrated?? - 3/10/2018
Los Angeles is nothing more than a shithole! Luckily, the city hasn't fallen into ruins the way Detroit did...But, ONLY cos all the idiot celebrities bring in the money needed to support the idiotic policies of this state!

Do NOT live here!!! it is a state that caters to rich celebrities, hobos and illegal immigrants!

REAL businesses are run out of this state with ridiculous taxes, under the guise of helping people... DO NOT live here! You wanna be an actor/actress/model? Be prepared to take A LOT OF COCK IN YOUR MOUTH! Literally and Read More

LA LA Land - 12/22/2017
I grew up in LA in both the Redondo Beach and Eagle Rock Area. After moving out of state for college, I moved back and now live in North Hollywood. Hopefully not for long....

Pros: LA has some of the best food, night life, and attractions in the US-if not the world. The biggest acts always come to town. The beaches are nice. It's an opportunity to meet/ hang out with people from all over the world.

Cons: Literally, we have the worst traffic in the US! We spend 40 hours more a year than the average american in our car. A FULL WEEK. Google it if you don't believe me. Parking is almost always terrible and the public transportation is inadequate. The Real Estate prices are crazy here. The middle class is getting shafted! The Median home price is $500 K + for LA county, 2 X + the national average, even though we don't make anywhere close to twice the median income (only $5K more a year).

If you need constant sunshine and you don't mind rude, Read More

Crowded, Expensive and Full of Criminals! - 7/22/2017
I've lived here all my life and in the last twenty years L.A. has turned into an expensive slum. There are a few decent pockets, but who can afford them?.... My father used to tell me how nice Los Angeles was in the 1930's and I thought the 60's and 70's were rough, but they were nothing compared to now. It's getting to be just like in the movie "Bladerunner." This is my home, but I can hardly recognized it anymore. Welcome to L.A. the world's most expensive Third World Read More
