    I am a mountain man, cities are not generally my thing.  However, I would have to say to draw parallel comparisons between the two.  Look at gang related violence, crime statistics in general, check out the schooling in both, the taxes, how hard is it to get around both cities.  I hear parking in New York costs a fortune.  Check out bus routes, bike access, cost of food, rent.  Think about all of the important things like that and do a compare and contrast piece.  Sum it up with which one truly looks to be better, then of coarse leave it up to the reader to draw their own heart felt conclusions.  Also, you might think about what there is for fun stuff to do, entertainment, etc.  To me, Los Angeles is sounding better for that reason.

    New York has its Pizza and its deli's and you cant go wrong with those two. People mostly walk in New York and its not so safe walking around at night in lots of places but then there is Time Square by day or night and nothing compares. I always say that if your looking to be be a dancer, writer or journalist or even work on wall street just move to New York where you can focus.

    Los Angeles has its weather warm and sunny almost all year. Almost everyone drives in LA so its traffic everywhere you go which means spending a whole lot of time on the road. So many brands at the supermarkets and such large selections and then there is Hollywood where the stars live and play. Better place to raise a child is in Los Angeles, safety, space and things to see and do.
