Never rode the subway there, so I've no idea how it compares with the subway in New York or elsewhere in the US. If anyone's used the LA Metro, let me know.
At the weekend, I really enjoyed taking a tram up to the Getty Center. The sun was pouring through the windows, the sky was blue, it was warm, the air was clear. If only Tube travel could be like this!
As you can see from the picture below there were fantastic views of Los Angeles. Luckily there was a break in the weather (last week California had big winter storms and it rained from the day we arrived).
