The Native Angeleno has recently moved into the internet with some advice for people moving into the city. The site's LA For Beginners guide offers newcomers and future residents a perspective on neighborhood identity, in short, subjective, non-statistically specific detail.
- North Hollywood: Referred to as NOHO on t-shirts and coffee mugs, and home to a growing Artists District that has yet to include Artists.
- Koreatown: Cheap, lawless and intensely treeless. Street parking is but a rumor.
- Culver City: Famous restaurants and designer stores open their second or third locations here.
- Hollywood: Hollywood is the most obvious and least-survived place to first move into. There are tourists, but only on a few main streets. Most of Hollywood is made of Hills and Canyons full of ghosts and the people who speak with them, believe in them, or want to be them.
- Los Feliz: A more bourgeoisie version of Silver Lake with strollers, etc. A real melting pot for casual drinkers and alcoholics alike.
- Hancock Park: The mayor lives here.
The site's manifesto-style mission is to seek answers to the question, "who killed LA," as its life-long, LA-resident creators "point fingers and poke eyes...name names and call names." In describing its own character, The Native Angeleno is happy to tell you what it's all About as a website.
"We know the rules. A website about Los Angeles is supposed to be about the search for the cutest artisanal tamale stand made of sustainable vegan bamboo. Or it can be a website devoted to kissing up to talent agents, deputy editors, chefs, curators, hoteliers and dead buildings. This is not one of those," it states.
