Another New Yorker falls for Los Angeles

Writer Emma Straub tells the L.A. Times about her new-found admiration for the city:

“As a New York City native, I was raised to look down on Los Angeles. You know, Biggie vs Tupac, etc. I think the biggest surprise for me, over the course of the last few years, is how much I really love it. My older brother is smart and has lived in L.A. since he was 18. If my husband had his druthers, we would be living somewhere near the Arclight. Or maybe living at the Arclight.”

(There’s more):

“I didn’t get to as many of the old-school L.A. restaurants as I wanted to, but blame that on Gjelina and all the different kinds of avocados at the farmers’ markets.”
