LA’s Unquantifiable Characteristics
Some of the best aspects of L.A. are immeasurable: its multiculturalism, which is the bedrock of the city’s innovation; its electric energy and sunny climate; its dimensional regions and once-in-a-lifetime experiences, and its overall ethos of spirit that says ‘here, anything is possible’ – from new frontiers in medicine to global connections among the world’s brightest minds.
