im not saying I completely agree with chicano, but really now, what the heck does Los Angeles growing on a large scale and becoming more transit-dependent have to do with "self worth"?
This idea that a major city densifying means it is somehow "mimicking" or "becoming like New York City" is so shortsighted i don't even know where to begin.
And despite what you may be led to believe, LA does NOT have that much influence outside of a few sectors of the global economy.
