Halle & Beveridge (2013) note that in New York, the winter is glistening and frosty.As such, the atmosphere is classic in the Yuletide season thus making it possible to engage in such activities as snow man assembling and ice skating.The most notable form of public transportation in the city is the MTA (Metropolitan Transportation Authority) or the “subway” through which one can access most places within the city.
The median age of a home in New York is 17.2% older than the median age of a home in Los Angeles.
“Homes are 5.3% less likely to be rented in Los Angeles than in New York” (Bestplaces.net, 2017).
While the median cost of a home in New York is $581,400, Los Angeles has a median home cost of $583,600.
This implies that it is a bit cheaper to acquire a home in NY as compared to LA.
In terms of transportation, NY is cheaper due to the presence of the MTA.
Additionally, the cities may both be densely populated but as has been seen, NY is far much more densely populated than LA. While the cities have some similarities and may be attractive to various people depending on their lifestyles and preferences, New York City and Los Angeles are vastly different, especially in their climate, housing, population, and transportation.
Very large and populous, the cities are found in different states, New York City being in New York while Los Angeles being in California.
They both attract thousands of visitors in spite of being hugely crowded and costly to live in.
Noteworthy however, people who are conditioned to warm weather would still find the New York environment hospitable despite the snowfall. The rainy season occurs between November and January.
The housing characteristics are also different between New York City and Los Angeles.
