In case your request was for a website like DCF but for LA, you should check out LAist. Many cities have city blogs with the "ist" suffix name - DCist, Phillyist, Gothamist, Bostonist, SFist, Seattlest, etc.
In my opinion, DCF has a tighter sense of community than these other city blogs do.
Since this is not strictly speaking, Albuquerque related and DCF rules require front page discussions to be Albuquerque-related, I'm closing the discussion. You might want to repost your question to the Los Angeles Expats group. Good luck.
