Development an Gentrification
- 10/14/2018
Shaniqua handouts and government party favors are coming to an end even in Los Angeles. Predatory capitalism dictates that the strong will survive and the weak will be displaced. It may suck, but that's America. The Negro must come to terms with competing financially so they can maintain their communities and not be displaced as you put it. With unfair but still strong affirmative action programs in place, the Negro can take advantage of educational opportunities and secure professional positions within the marketplace and afford those homes that they are being driven out of. The Asians have been in the United States for just a generation or two and are excelling academically and financially beyond that of the Caucasian. They are buying up property in the Hollywood Hills and displacing the white folks. That's how the game goes.

Your list of pros is funny. "Great nightlife" "best attractions". Only someone who grew up in LA and hasn't been around much could possibly say that. Last call is at 1:30 AM. Vegas is 24 hours in New York City might as well be. South Beach… Top five most polluted beaches in the United States. Santa Monica, Malibu and three others. I would not call the beach and attraction but rather a detraction. What else let's see… Magic Mountain and Disneyland. Anaheim gangs and high crime. The mountains are parched with very little green and those that do have some trees are due to get burned down in the yearly firestorms that pervade the state. You mentioned that you get to meet people from all over. 90% of all new transplants to Los Angeles are Mexican/Asian. If that's your thing fine but if you're looking to meet sophisticated and educated Europeans from Sweden or Norway or Denmark for a couple of dozen other European cities good luck with that. I spend half the year in Lake Geneva Switzerland and the other half living in Vienna Austria I can promise you isn't the one of them that has ever had the desire to visit Los Angeles no less live there. Travel overseas if you can afford it spent two years living in culturally advanced first world cities and yes I am referring to Europe, and then look back your rearview mirror and come back on this site and post what you think about Los Angeles upon reflection.

Yada yada yada. Sunny 24/7? I might be wrong but I think it gets dark there. Even in the summer. Northern Finland in August might be a better choice. 86% of Dade County (Miami) is Hispanic/Latino. Good idea to speak Spanish there as well. More so even by a long shot. Miami culture? Hip - pop and heavily, very heavily, Latino influenced. If that's your definition of culture and your thing, than fine but it's not Minneapolis. Add exceptionally high crime and mind bending humidity to the mix for good measure. Miami vs San Diego, San Diego vs Miami. Like 2 homeless guys arguing with each other as to who has the dirtier underwear. Whoever wins, they both lose.

re:

Cheryl, there's the real world and then is the world that we all wish we can live in. In the real world employers are always going to choose the more attractive person whether it be male or female. It's harsh to put it that way but human nature is what it is. If an exceptionally attractive tall man was to apply for the same job as a 4'6" overweight balding man, who do you think would get the job?. Also I have to say that employers and rightfully so, have got to consider the health implications of hiring someone who is overweight. Obesity is a precursor to many medical issues including hypertension diabetes peripheral vascular disease arthritis and many other medical conditions that I will not get into. Overweight or obese employees miss much more work over the long haul due to medical reasons then those that are healthy and in shape. Again not meant to be offensive but your weight is something you can do something about. It is not out of your control as it would be for example if someone was to expect that you would have to be 6 feet 5 inches tall and have blue eyes and freckles. These are genetically unalterable but your weight or anyone's weight for that matter is for the most part with rare exceptions controllable and with dedication and discipline you could become one of those "slim" females that you were referring to in you post. Hit the gym six times per week, and lay off the cannoli.

Oh yeah, San Diego is world renowned for its nightlife. Last call 1:30 AM in the three square block gaslamp District. Military guys stumbling back to Pendleton after a Kegger. Definitely better than Las Vegas. After all, Vegas is a 24 hour town. Much better to shut things down at 1:30... 4972 restaurants/bars including strip and downtown Fremont Street. That includes the 196 shows and cabarets and 86 gentlemen's clubs etc. and etc.… But who's counting.

Anyone paying these crazy prices for these shacks in California has got to be a charter member of the "there's always someone stupider than I" club. Sooner or later the Russian roulette wheel estate hammers going to fall on the last guy. When the music stops the last guy without a chair loses. Everyone will look at themselves and say can you believe how stupid we were to pay $872,000 for a 90-year-old two bedroom one bath clip joint without a garage or central air-conditioning because it's only 1.3 miles away from the beach. Normal people can't be participating in the market out there, it's got to be Chinese real estate investment trusts or air B&B speculators. Otherwise it doesn't make any sense. Most of the housing looks like Third World property to me. The kind of houses when I was growing up I used feel sorry for people that had to live in them. Small, old, no yard, no land and wished right between your neighbors to either side. I think people selling now and getting out are getting out while the getting is good. I have to disagree with one point that Mike made. I really don't think that the only thing that California and San Diego has going for it is its natural beauty. I grew up in New England with hundreds of miles of country roads and beautiful green landscapes and water feature is legs/rivers waterfalls wherever you would look to the left into the right everywhere green and beautiful. I don't see any of that in California with the exception of a few very isolated areas of beauty which have been completely cannibalized by developers and guys like Mitt Romney that can afford a $10 million house overlooking the ocean in La Jolla. Get on a freeway or any roadway between San Diego and Los Angeles and tell me with his any natural beauty to be seen anywhere. Parched freeways, crumbling infrastructure, no green spaces. I see no or very little natural beauty anywhere in Southern California. It's a desert littered with strip malls and planned communities stock up on top of some shaved off hill/mountain. Waldorf communities cinder block walls. No natural terrain i.e. forests to create natural boundaries between homes. Parts of northern California near the coast/Yosemite a few other places but most of the state looks like the surface of the moon with freeways.

Weather is not good. It's the same every day. The same every day is not good, it's boring. Sunny and 70. Boring boring boring. LA same thing sunny and 70 sunny and 70 now more like sunny and 80 but same principle. I'll take the rain, the clouds, the snow, the leaves changing in fall, a winter snowfall a hot day followed by a cool day followed by a cold day followed by a rainy day… Any day over the sameness and drudgery of San Diego whether. Change of scenery/change of clothing/just change or change sake. The weather is droll and uninteresting a lot like the people. Yes I'm an arrogant northeastern New Yorker. I know you hate us but most of us up here feel the same way. Gave California a shot for a long while. Good job as a doctor but never could make enough money to live well. Everyone has said it already but it's true, it's overrated and overpriced. I've lived in several European cities, Vienna, Oslo Stockholm Sweden, expensive but worth it. These are real cities in every sense of the word not conservative backwards thinking Christian scientist meets hoards of border jumpers.

Las Vegas, NV


re:
Las Vegas is EXACTLY what you think it is - 10/12/2018
People with such negative comments about a town normally have something else going on inside of them. I read both your post and Michelle's reply and I feel like we are living in two different towns. I've never been a victim of crime. I've driven close to 150,000 miles in eight years here in Las Vegas and have never had a single traffic incident. Never. Not even a fender bender. Alcohol and drugs? Of course as you know they are everywhere. I don't drink and do not remember one single encounter since I have lived here when I have even had a conversation with someone that has been intoxicated. I disagree as well with your assessment about middle-class lifestyle and Las Vegas not being a good fit. I believe it to be just the opposite. I've lived in Manhattan New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco. Now those are cities that definitively speaking have no real middle-class or no chance for the middle class to even afford a residence. Here, that's not true. I'm a medical doctor and have not had any problems finding a job as you put it. Yes, I went to medical school and maybe your review is not geared towards professionals but I can tell you: the town with an M.D. degree you going to be making well into the six figures your first day at work. I know I did. And all of my colleagues as well. Even though I'm a physician I still consider myself middle-class and you probably are aware housing here is a third of what it is a more sexy cities in the United States such as New York or San Francisco. Your first comment regarding no future. Multibillion-dollar sports franchises have either moved to Las Vegas or are currently in the process of moving here. Businesses like that don't relocate and commit billions of dollars without a future. As far as the people are concerned they seem pretty nice to me. I treat elderly patients all day long and they are grateful and generous in their kindness towards me and are happy to have someone that cares for their well-being. I really don't recall any negative instances at all not a single one in the eight years I've been here with any person. Maybe one road rage incident but that's about it. I think if someone sees the strip in downtown as dens of iniquity rather than just places to have a good time, but I just look at them as places to step out once a month to see a show, have a nice dinner, people watch, take date to go shopping. I've lived in some pretty boring places. Cities that had several million people that had nothing to do after 10 o'clock at night. Vegas does. I like that idea though I happen to like a city that has some edge to it and maybe a little bit of danger as long as I can keep in arms distance from it. I'm sorry that your experiences here have not been the same as mine or my colleagues and/or friends but I found the most of the reasons that a person either likes or dislikes a place is based upon what's going on internally as opposed to what's going on around them. That's just my observation. I do agree with you though about one thing and that is that will do tend to isolate themselves and segregate themselves or in their homes. Blinds are drawn and very rarely do people interact with each other. That's too bad there is a lack of community here which I think bothers some people more than others. I don't mind it as I like to be left alone anyway. I'm not really a wife and two kids and neighborhood BBQ type of guy but I do get your point on that one. I still think Vegas is a good call for someone that has middle-class money, likes relatively good weather with the exception of some hot months in the summer and wants to live in a city with action and things going on around them even if they don't partake but every once in a while. Stay sober. Don't gamble. Stay away from bad influences and you'll be just fine out here. It's not magic and applies universally to pretty much any place you choose to live. It does help to have a good education and a strong career I'll admit that. Anyway, my time here has been positive so far. And one more thing, reading about how terrible the doctors are in Las Vegas? Do your homework and choose wisely. My neurosurgeon is valedictorian from Stanford medical school. My cardiologist was second in his class at Harvard. I could go on and on but there are intellectually strong, well skilled and talented physicians out here. There are also bad ones. I could say the same for New York City Boston and Portland Oregon for that matter.

Keep your blinds drawn at all times. Come out twice a day to walk your war torn Pit, and make sure everyone sees you. Wear camouflage pants and a black security t shirt. Start there.

re:
Crowded, Expensive and Full of Criminals! - 9/30/2018
The older you get the more you can compare a place you remember from a long time ago to what it's like today. A place like New York City got better in the 1990s for example than the 1970s. More livable, cleaner, less crime. Gotten too sterile for me these days, but has been generally improving over the decades, but Los Angeles in my experience has been steadily declining decade to decade. It's much worse now than it was 10 years ago. It's worse 10 years ago than it was 20 years ago. Etc. Getting more and more dirty, more more Third World and strangely more and more expensive. People from war-torn or significantly economically depressed countries/political repression can come here and have a better life but if you were raised in first world settings as most of us here in the US were, chances are you're not going to like it there. Maybe if you're very young, in your 20s it could be tolerable, especially if you don't mind being around 140 different ethnic groups whom you have nothing in common with. Los Angeles was not much until the 1920s. Two or three great decades during the Golden age and then the steady decline began. I wasn't around in the 1930s but I've read a lot and would've loved to have been around then. Must've been a great place to live. I was around in the 1980s though and as difficult of a place as it was then in many ways today it is 10 times worse in every way.

Second most beautiful place. I guess you're referring to Malibu as being the most beautiful?. Had a house right on Trancas and PCH across from Cindy Crawford. She was on the ocean side LOL. Never thought much of Malibu. Never got all the hoopla. Spent years there. PCH does not have much romance. More like an interstate than a lesson beach access road. Malibu with all its houses so closely packed together could barely fit a piece of looseleaf between the properties. Sarasota much more beautiful. Were beautiful Beecher's and much much nicer sunsets. More green and just overall a much nicer place IMO. Malibu seemed to me to be rather old and dilapidated without much charm. Always thought the East Coast beaches were more quaint and pretty.

The whole state is a cesspool. Arguing about what's better Laguna or Huntington is like two homeless guys are doing about who has the dirtier pair of underwear.

For anyone visiting that is trying to figure out how can some old shack 90 years old termite written shack that sell in Ohio for $32,000 is over $1 million. You got me. I'm an educated guy but I can't figure it out never could. It can't be deal more of Southern California because it has nothing going for it. Features are prettier in Florida and the mountains are more handsome in New Hampshire. At some oddball thing going on with overseas investors and air B&B purchasers. I think the Chinese are buying up tens of thousands of properties in California as part of some real estate investment trust. Never to live in what sort of like a stock that they make a dividend off of and a certain percentage of return based on rental income. It's hard to say but no normal right thinking person would ever buy property anywhere Southern California I have never seen dirtier uglier homes with more poor infrastructure, a more sorry lack of community and this multiethnic multicultural hodgepodge of 150 ethnic groups all self segregating and like squirrels fighting for the same nut. I got there in the 80s and it was bad then but I'd say it's 10 times worse now in every way that a place can be worse. I would say that every single place in the United States is better than living in Southern California. I've lived on and off in 40 different states and I would choose living outside of the Ohio on a 1 acre farm over one of these dilapidated old slumlord apartment complexes where one-bedroom units sell for over $600,000 any day. I hate that place I really do.

re: Glad I at least checked it out

From your review, you are probably much younger than me. I remember Seattle in the 70s, San Francisco in the 70s Portland etc.… Then they became "it" cities. Everyone rushed in their reducing the quality of life and at the same time raising the prices. Paradoxical that that can be the case but I've seen that with most American cities with the exception of New York which has not really gotten larger and more populated but has become much more beautiful. Seattle not the case. I will tell you I lived there for two summers and you will need air-conditioning. Particularly if you're a athletic person i.e. male and perspire often or heat humidity sensitive you're going to need it. The old ploy in the Northwest and even in California to this day is "you don't need it here". That's a lie. Because all 100° in Portland Oregon. Several people died last summer because they didn't have a sea. Don't believe the lies and prepare yourself. I portable AC which was exactly what you're talking about. Get a double hose unit not a single hose. It works better. But even the most powerful portable AC will only cool off about 300 ft.² so I hope you've got a small master bedroom. As far as your comment on Seattle being beautiful, I hate to be a naysayer but I really didn't think so. I grew up in New England which to my mind is significantly more beautiful than anything in the Northwest. East Coast rivers streams waterfalls inlets jetties and East Coast trees and forests I found to be much more beautiful. You mentioned you were thinking of leaving and were concerned you would not find as beautiful a place to live. For my money, I can name at least 10 cities of over 200,000 people between Pennsylvania and Maine that are much more beautiful than Seattle to my mind. Okay you've got those big volcanoes there but that's about it. You have my status first and spruce trees but on the East Coast or 20 or 30 different variety of trees which account for the beautiful fall foliage that we have backed their. Try Boston, Providence, Portland Maine, Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, Manchester New Hampshire… I can go on and on. For my money Boston it is way way heads and tails above Seattle Washington in just about every category regarding quality of life. You don't have those in a boring robotic like techies which dominate the landscape. Much brighter people in Boston, better universities and people have much more personality. Far superior city. I was a Manhattan to but I'm partial because that's where I'm from. I found the two most overrated and overpriced cities in the United States of America to be Portland Oregon on an Seattle Washington. I could go on and on as to why a but if you are not a big fan of hipsters and techies then you're going to find the East Coast much more amenable. I know I do. No comparison. Good luck with your search and getting out of Seattle is a smart move. Incidentally, I agree with you about the housing. Old, rundown "ranchers". Houses that 20 years ago were purchased by blue-collar sanitation workers are now selling for $800,000 just because they're near "Seattle". So why, it's still in the old rancher the matter where the hell is located. Be careful not to get sucked into the real estate Russian roulette wheel of musical chairs. Good luck

From your review, you are probably much younger than me. I remember Seattle in the 70s, San Francisco in the 70s Portland etc.… Then they became "it" cities. Everyone rushed in their reducing the quality of life and at the same time raising the prices. Paradoxical that that can be the case but I've seen that with most American cities with the exception of New York which has not really gotten larger and more populated but has become much more beautiful. Seattle not the case. I will tell you I lived there for two summers and you will need air-conditioning. Particularly if you're a athletic person i.e. male and perspire often or heat humidity sensitive you're going to need it. The old ploy in the Northwest and even in California to this day is "you don't need it here". That's a lie. Because all 100° in Portland Oregon.

Your review of Houston was spot on. Unlike the other commentor below JB. I too am 60 years old and single. The demographic difference between a married retired couple and a single guy is like night and day. These reviews are best evaluated and analysed by matching up your particular demographic to the person writing the review. This other reviewer JB is already married with a husband and has no interest in the single scene or anything in regards relating to your comments about the women of Houston which from my perspective is a huge reason to either move or not to move to a place and I found a similar experience with the women in Houston that you described. I've lived in California as well and that's a fool's paradise but just because one place is a sewer doesn't mean that moving to another place that's a bit less of a sewer is any rational reason to move there. The US has much nicer places to live then Texas and California that's for damn sure. For those that have the means and the energy and strength and courage and happen to be single and free, a consideration regarding a move out of the country is not such a bad idea either. You're right, Texas is not what was 30 years ago but I've lived in 20 different states and 40 different cities and I can say the same thing about all of them. There are better places to live outside of the US. I'm not talking about Costa Rica or Nicaragua either but if you can afford it , Europe, New Zealand, for all types of reasons that are more appropriate to my particular demographic and interests anyway. Good luck

You know something Mr. from Bertroud Colorado. You are a real piece of garbage. These reviews are supposed to be really from people that actually live in towns that they're reviewing. I'm going to be placing a "report abuse" claim against you. I have already seen several of your so-called reviews (just approved you that I know I'm talking about Boston for example), where you indicate that for your friends were killed in Boston and in this ridiculous BS in and two friends worked killed in Los Angeles. You are a liar and pathetic. Probably some dumb ass lloser with nothing better to do than trash all US cities because you couldn't get ahead because you're some kind of dumb ass minority.
