The Los Angeles Flower Market is a massive wholesale flower and plant market open to the public for a token fee. It anchors the much larger Flower District, which is filled with (yup) flower shops of every size and possibility. Most of the shops were originally opened by Jews and Italians; these days Koreans and Mexicans run the show. #losangeles #la #travel (at The Original Los Angeles Flower Market)

LA, LA

It’s been three weeks since I moved to Los Angeles from NYC. Love this city, and the amount that I love it surprises me a lot. It’s a very different beast from New York, but it’s an amazing place that never ceases to positively surprise me.

A few quick notes:

1. LA seems like it would be a positively awful place to live in your twenties.

2. LA seems like a great place to live if you are under 21 or over 30.

3. All the cliches about LA traffic are true. However, noone gives enough notice about the asshats who don’t use turn signals/text while they drive/do their nails behind the wheel.

4. The city and its suburbs are full of amazing ethnic neighborhoods with crazy amazing restaurants/shops/sights that can’t really be spotted from the street. Foursquare and Yelp are your off-the-beaten track friends.

5. Much better live music than NYC. Smaller bands can actually find venues to play in. Freaky.
