I on the other hand prefer a city over the country most days.
LA is an urban sprawl not a city to me.  You got to be able to
walk to appreciate the city.   When I lived in New York City,
I wlaked from Morningside Heights (and once even from
Washington Heights!) down to Battery Park every spring.
The problem is the US is that public schools are not great in the
cities.  Once my kids are grown, I will move to a condo in the
city for sure.
