City of Angels

On this day in 1850, Los Angeles is incorporated as a city in the California Republic (California would not be admitted into the union until September 9th of that year). The population of the city at that time was well under 4,000 people.

That was then, and this is now.  The 2010 census list LA's current population at a cool 3.7 million people, making it the second largest city in the US behind New York City and as of 2008 it was the third largest economic center of the world.  

The glittering city is known for great sports teams, a home to the music industry, and of course the red carpets of Hollywood.
