Could Someone Help Me Understand The City of Los Angeles?

I've been studying this on and off for a while (just for fun in my spare time), but haven't really come up with anything definitive. The city of Los Angeles is around 400 square miles. So what about all the other "cities" within the city of Los Angeles?

For example, Woodland Hills is a "district" of Los Angeles, as well as the northern border of Los Angeles. But it's not technically an incorporated city, yet it has it's own Post Office and your mail goes to "Woodland Hills, CA" and not to "Los Angeles, CA". Also, the LAPD and LAFD serve Woodland Hills, CA...not like the Woodland Hills PD or FD.

Then there's the "neighborhoods" of Los Angeles, such as Koreatown. Being a neighborhood, your mail goes to "Los Angeles, CA" and not to "Koreatown, CA".

So AFAIK, if an area is a district, then it can essentially be considered a mayorless city with the PD and FD served by the city of Los Angeles, correct? But if an area is a neighborhood, then it's technically LA, right? I think I just made myself more confused after writing this out.

Houston is kind of the same way.

Re: Could Someone Help Me Understand The City of Los Angeles?

you have small towns (or communities) that were swallowed up by the urban sprawl of LA, and got incorporated into the city. then there are neighborhoods that have been built on the outskirts (at the time) that have been then incorporated since they were most likely placed within the county lines, but not within any city limits.

i dont know the exact details of LA, but thats basically how it goes for large cities.

And you were looking for a rational reason for anything in Kalifornea, why? Look who you've got as Governator.
