We Angelenos are a complicated people -- creatures of emotion, liable to get swept up in even the silliest of crazes. It's important, therefore, to acknowledge when something's not quite living up to the hype. Here is one man's humble contribution: an attempt to cut through the hoopla and set the record straight.

Just 'cause your neighborhood has tall buildings doesn't make it the Lower East Side of Manhattan, and just 'cause your apartment building has a rooftop pool doesn't mean your life is just like Entourage.

11) Bike lanes
