I don't know about previous discussion here, but Los Angeles indeed progressed from 2L-4N to 3L-4N.

Downtown Los Angeles, for example, was the MAdison Exchange. I remember lots of very public numbers in that exchange that were MA 1234 (for example) then became MA 5 1234, and so forth.

Same for HOllywood.
