Los Angeles, located in Southern California,
is the most populous city in the state of California
and the second most populous in the United States, after New York City.
Los Angeles was founded on September 4, 1781, by Spanish governor Felipe de Neve.
It became a part of Mexico in 1821 following the Mexican War of Independence.
In 1848, at the end of the Mexican–American War, Los Angeles and the rest of California
were purchased as part of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, thereby becoming part of the United States.
Los Angeles is a leading world center of business, international trade, entertainment,
culture, media, fashion, science, sports, technology, and education, and has been ranked
sixth in the Global Cities Index and 13th in the Global Power City 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.
As the home base of Hollywood, it leads the world in the creation of television productions,
video games, and recorded music; it is also one of the leaders in motion picture production.
