By Shana Ting Lipton:
Los Angeles is many cities in one. This can be both exhilarating and overwhelming, for natives and non-natives. Once you find your niche (or niches) it can be one of the most eclectic, stimulating and livable places to plant roots. My hope is that this guide will arm you with fun and useful information, tips and perspectives that will give you a sense of community, and a real 360 view of all that LA has to offer.
