I never been to either, but gimme Compton. LA winters > NY winters. I'm sure I can handle the hood, but I barely survive winter every year.

give me brooklyn, and i absolutely hate that borough....... the thought of the hipsters and ghetto trash in that borough get me agitated but it's better than living in LA where everybody and their mother is an aspiring entertainer.

once a new yorker, always a new yorker.

NY winters > Detroit winters. I think you'd be fine in NY if Detroit winters haven't killed you off.

How many people here actually from BK?

I'm from Compton, and just like most cities.... it has its bad neighborhoods and its decent ones, but it aint a stroll in the park.

Having said that.... I'm sure there's more stuff to do in BK.

while I agree that Compton is located close to beaches, clubs, etc. etc. they're not 'in' Compton itself. You gotta leave Compton to go anywhere decent, and you gotta do it on a car.

Whereas in BK, one can just hop on a cab or train, or even walk to their destination.

We do have better weather, but we also have more crime (I'm assuming).

Probably, but Detroit winters have killed most of my soul at least.

If all things were equal, I'd avoid sub-40 degree temperatures and snow and having to wear 8 layers to go outside completely.

However, I'm certain Brooklyn and Compton are both infinitely better than Detroit.

Compton really is just church, liquor store, gun store, churches chicken, 99cent store. I live about 15 minutes from compton and I drive through on occasion and it's not that different than the surrounding areas.


that's racist. j/k

but yeah been to both areas. brooklyn and compton. good thing about brooklyn is easy access to mass transportation so you don't have to worry about cars and parking during work days and easy access to manhattan. good thing about compton is near the beach and LA is pretty nice.

i would choose compton, because of 1 major factor. the brooklyn hipsters like the above hipster said. they scare me.

hell they even have a location in brooklyn marked on google maps called "Hipster Central". if that doesn't scare you, then i don't know what does.

rent varies by cities. Sacramento is pretty damn cheap, you can get a 1 bedroom apartment for like 500-600 a month, compared to a 1 bdrm apartment in San Francisco, which would be 1800+ a month. not sure what la's prices are like.

i could never live in new york, snow? muggy humid hot summers? no thanks
