LA is, to this outsider, not warm, not fuzzy, sort of "not real" and the most dead center of town for a major city I have ever been in! (I am from New England and work in NY City so I am used to not warm and not fuzzy - but this was more than even I was used to!)

Spent one Easter there and ended up at a (albeit wonderful, but really..)Chinese Restaurant by taxi for Easter Sunday evening dinner because I had no car, was staying downtown and there were no restaurants open!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (And I did not know about the 24/7/365 Dining Car yet off of Wilshire near the Hospital).

Have been to LA many other times since, but never wrmed up to it.

I have not been to L>A> since 1965 but what I remember is snails in the ivy of the front yards,no clear sunshine untill 12 noon, and seeing my first hippies.It was a crowded place back then and I can only imagine how it might be today.BUT what I would give to see a palm or lemon tree come the first of December!!
