Time, July 30th – By Jens Erik Gould.
Los Angeles and New York City are about as different as two cities can be. L.A. is horizontal, while N.Y.C. is vertical. L.A. is about the car; N.Y.C., the subway. And downtown L.A. has traditionally been the laughingstock of the city’s nightlife, while N.Y.C. has a concentration of nightlife in Manhattan.  Now that is changing.
