First of all, I get to choose which half goes.

Second, it is not built for density.

Third, too many cars is really a bigger problem than too many people but it's easier to get rid of the people, and with them go the cars, sort of a two-fer. I win!

Manton, are you ghost-writing Gothamist headlines?

the answer to this question is always brooklyn.

from there you have to have an honest conversation with yourself how close you are willing to live near projects and after that hipster population density.

This happens in a lot of neighborhoods in Manhattan too...

No one in NY does that...check to see if their train is delayed before going home......

Indeed.  Real-time subway apps are awesome.  The less time soaking up the stale, 105-degree combination of flatulence, urine, Old Spice and body odor the better.  The true New Yorker is the one who does not stop moving between the sidewalk and the air-conditioned car, and in situations where the train is behind schedule, camps out precisely where a door will open.

Then would it be ok for me to complain how bitterly hot it has been the past few days in Sorrento and the Almafi coast?

You can't throw a stone in my neighborhood (LES/Alphabet City) without hitting some form of project/government housing.

And they make it a middle door. Because the ends have no AC vents.

The middle door AC vents are crucial to my summer survival.

Yeah, LA County is really too large and difficult to traverse to serve as a point of comparison for any single big city. The best point comparison would probably include smaller municipalities close to the actual City of Los Angeles (e.g., Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, Pasadena) but not all of the County.

The second point is kinda true, and the third is very true. I'm leaving the first point alone because I don't want to know which half I fall in.
