As Fred Ebb penned, if you can make it in New York, you can make it anywhere. But frankly, making it in the City of Angels has always seemed much tougher. In New York you can hustle, in LA you’re more likely to benefit from having been blessed with a nice set of genes.

Amongst an urban landscape and selectively placed palms it’s not a look that’s LA noir, but a look straight out of the post-Drive world in which we live.
