There's a reason so many New York City diehards—you know, the ones who used to complain about the relentless sunshine and plastic surgery—are making the once unthinkable move west. Nowhere else—from the newly revitalized downtown to the miles of achingly beautiful coastline—has such sunny skies, such insistent glamour. But for all its glossy appeal, this is also a town with substance: an excellent food scene, superior shopping, and sweeping views of the city from atop Runyon Canyon…all of which make this legendary place even more so.
