"Nicknamed the City of Angels, Los Angeles is a global city, with strengths in business, international trade, entertainment, culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, education, medicine and research and has been ranked sixth in the Global Cities Index and 9th Global Economic Power Index. The city is home to renowned institutions covering a broad range of professional and cultural fields and is one of the most substantial economic engines within the United States."
Los Angeles is the largest city in California which is the largest state (population) in the USA. But it trails NYC in population.

Around 1900, the city was also a powerful tourist magnet and we find many spoons from this area.

The  official name is "El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Angeles del Río de Porciúncula"
