Mr. Beat : Which is better? New York City or Los Angeles? Which two cities should I compare next? And here is M.Laser's video:

Christopher Hammond : East coast best coast

Loompa Oompa : LA isn't even a fraction as impressive as NY

Angel Villamizar : New York won fair and square.

- : Weed is legal in California. Case closed.

Daniel Eric Benavidez : New York Is King 👑

M.Laser : Just for the record I prefer NYC over LA. Btw, great working with you Mr. Beat I had a blast :)

EMP DASME : I’m from Chicago, I like LA better!!! LA has better vibes 🌴

Zacky Jacky : I love New York better

kitano0 : "When it's 95 degrees and 95 percent humidity in New York, it's 78 in L.A. When it's 34 degrees and sleet in New York, it's 78 in L.A. There are two million interesting people in New York. 78 in L.A." -Neil Simon, playwright...

SkippyDW : I prefer LA mostly just for the weather and space.

MrBettsClass : Great video, buddy. And again, NY all the way. Pizza > Tacos Yankees > Dodgers Casey > Paul Brothers Empire State Building > Griffith Observatory Broadway < Hollywood (Can't win them all)

m f : obviously: nyc 🗽🏙

664 TheNeighborOfTheBeast : No doubt. New York is clearly the superior city.

j fong : LA has the prettier girls.

Timothy : Only New York people compare the two, while Californians are too busy enjoying the best state in the country. edit: lmao I triggered so many people with this comment. Cry harder please.

17 76 : NYC!

Gabriel Sasala : New York is by far better than Los Angeles

Casiana S : People in L.A. are cool, relaxed and not that stressed. That’s what I felt like living there. But indeed L.A. needs a better public transit and they are working on it, they are expanding the subway 🚇 and the bus lines (I saw signs that say they are) Another shocking thing is that Los Angeles has a really bad homelessness problem. I was very shocked and to see Skid Row, WOW! I never thought anything like that existed in the US! It’s so bad you’d have to see it to believe it. But I still love LA! The weather, the beaches, the mountains too, the people 😊 Starting the day with a hike at Griffith Park and then going to the beach later in the day when you’re done with work or errands is just lovely

Stefan Milo : All star mash up! Having visited neither I can't make an objective decision but fortunately this is the internet so that doesn't matter. I pick New York.

Z Nismo : You already know that the West Side is the Best Side!

Kevin Zhou : LA is the biggest waste of conversations. New York is the greater city that's a known fact.

ssssaa2 : New york has always been the biggest and by far most important city. For most of the last century, L.A. wasn't even second. 2nd shifts hands every so often. NYC wins hands down. But L.A. has gotten bigger and better quickly for decades now.

PRHILL9696 : You forgot too mention all of the rats, roaches, bed bugs, crime every where, homeless people everywhere. New york and LA are just over crowded ghettos

SweetWheatsy : Yknow, at first I'd think myself better enjoying living in LA, but after hearing some of these facts I think I'd prefer New York. Living in a country with pretty good public transport, it's something I value greatly, and hearing New York having developed it a ton more than LA is important to me. I also have this idea of NY being much more of a concrete jungle than LA (which it probably is), but hearing LA having more smog problems is interessting - perhaps also due to the density of private transport. NY also seems to have more nature and parks than I thought, when searching around.

Nathan Hughes : New York

Dawn Peevy : L.A. has the best looking people and a wonderful view.

Jet SwinburneVEVO : Thank u all for ur support , seeya in a couple years mates! I live in Australia and as soon as I graduate I’m moving to NYC

Jadon Whittemore : I’m from San Diego and have been to la many times. New York has way worse traffic. It’s terrible

GileIgnj : As a European I am absolutely for NY because you can actually walk from place to place and still have functional legs after.

Jonathan Hansen : Weather is a lot better in LA than NY. Have met Lots of former New Yorkers in LA. Never knew anyone who went from LA To New York unless they had to.

TheSandwich Gaming : Both cities are great !

Manhattan is the best : I see more people on the NY side in the comments section of this video. I'm on that side.

Ed Crespo : Los Angeles's all the way, tacos. And to he honest I hate big cities so neither, but if I had to choose it would be la

Bayardo A Rugama : ny>la

Gerardo Unknown : I love Los Angeles better.

Johnboy : NY has four seasons and is the trend setter of the world, L A has the constant heat and do not know how to dress or even clubs that can be remembered. Also why do they have to redneck looking individuals choosing as they represent nothing of either. This video could've been better, but a no brainer, NY ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

Patrick Bateman : I'll def visit both, but between living in L.A or NYC. I'll def go for L.A

Youssef : I love New York 😍😍 !! My city it’s the best !! Nyc 🗽🗽🇺🇸❤️

Justin Scott : Nyc is a walking city. Everything you could ever need to live is in walking distance. LA is a driving city. You kind of need a car to get around. I personally love nyc a lot better because of the architecture

MCES LEX : LA, Mediterranean climate, New York, blizzards 🤣

ZINC-CROSS : New York because it's Trump town.

SlumpSKD1 : But New York has the best hip hop artist

Tori Tennant : West Coast!!! I love living in California, except for the hot summers

US 101 : NYC all day! East coast!

Millwall Joey : New Yorks better

I am awesome : LA 100%. I was born and raised in LA, so I have a little bias, but LA’s amazing because it’s open and relaxing. The weather is amazing year around and I find that the people are more friendly. NYC is amazing, but it’s too crammed and the weather sucks.

TheGabrielChannel : I don’t know why so much people enjoy living in an overpriced, crowded, gloomy, humid, boring city. In LA, there’s Hollywood, Disneyland, Universal studios, Knotts berry farm, everything fun. What do you have in New York? Sure, you have the Statue of Liberty, and the World Trade Center, but I guess I’ll just climb up this building and expect good things. Central Park has a lake and some greenlands, but I can’t think of anything else it has. In Los Angeles, it is sunny, entertaining, fun. And did I mention all the food, culture, diversity, landscape? I could be in Santa Monica for example, and have beautiful beach weather. Or, I could go more inland, into perhaps Pasadena, and explore the environmental side of LA. There’s no doubt LA takes #1.
