New Homes in LOS ANGELES - Living in La, La Land
Did you know that Los Angeles had another name? It was El Pueblo de Nuestra Senora Reina de los Angeles Sobre el Rio Porciuncula. Personally, I am glad they changed that as it would have been a pain when corresponding. The translation, loosely, means " The town of our queen of the angels along the Porciuncula River". You'd never know it today, but at one time Los Angeles was an oil producing Mecca where production equaled one-quarter of the world's oil supply. The good news is that new homes in Los Angeles do not have to look-out over oil fields. Instead, they look-out over the Pacific Ocean.
La, La Land - The Nick Names
Los Angeles has a ton of nicknames. One is the City of Flowers, which represents the warm climate. LA is the second largest city in the United States behind New York City. The climate here is mild to hot. LA sits in a Mediterranean climate belt, which means cool, wet winters and hot, dry summers. The rainy season is typically from October through March. The summer dry season is from April through October. The average summer temperature in LA is 76 degrees. Head slightly inland and the average temperatures begin to rise quickly. The Average summer temperature at the University of Southern California is 84 degrees. It is not uncommon to find summer temperatures above 90 degrees in LA. The low-winter temperatures range between 65 and 46 degrees - a great climate and awesome outlook for growing flowers.
The City of Oranges is another nickname of LA. The name is a stark comparison to that of New York where it is much colder. There are about 30 new home builders in the LA area, and they have projects scattered all over the city of Oranges. Some of the most exclusive properties are in Venice and Beverly Hills.

Your neighbor could be Madonna or any of the hundreds of top Hollywood stars. It is the movie stars here that give Los Angeles the nickname of Tinsel Town.
As for the name La, La Land, it comes from the sound of Los, which we pronounce as LAs, and the abbreviated form of Los Angeles (LA). La, La land is intentional. It is a fun name, but it represents some of the political and social views of the homeowners and inhabitants here. There is a ton of culture here, and any new home community in Los Angeles will be touched by the remarkable culture. One name alone should sum that up, Hollywood. Hollywood is the cultural icon of the world.
