We recently did a San Francisco vs. New York City poll, due to the fact that Lonely Planet's US office is in the San Francisco Bay Area and our US Travel Editor, Robert Reid, is based in NYC. We got some feedback, though, that the REAL rivalry is between Los Angeles and New York City. So we called up our Los Angeles resident author, Andrew Bender, and asked his insight into the best of LA. We’ve forwarded his picks to Robert Reid, and we’ve pitted the two cities against each other. Once again, we ask you to be the deciding factor. Which city gets to walk away with the bragging rights in this bi-coastal battle: Los Angeles or New York City?Have we missed anything? If so, let us know what you think should have been the contenders in the comments!
