WNYC's Brian Lehrer, Patt’s counterpart on the East Coast, joins her for one of their periodic duels of L.A. versus N.Y.C.

This time, it’s summer here versus summer there. Here in Los Angeles we rock movies in cemeteries and there’s always the Hollywood Bowl.

Then again, New York’s got Shakespeare in the Park and The High Line. We’ve got our Dodgers and Angels, they’ve got their Yankees and Mets; we have road rage, they have fights on subways.


What are your favorite things to do in L.A. and if you’re a transplant from the Big Apple, what do you miss?
