Then Maphawk?s ?neighborhood guides with a bird?s eye view? may be of service. The Los Angeles-based company publishes FREE (wheee!) maps and listings featuring the best spots to eat, shop, and amuse one?s self in the region?s various hipster ghettos. Maphawk currently publishes guides to Santa Monica, Venice, Marina/ Playa Del Rey/Westchester, Silver Lake/Echo Park/Los Feliz, and West Hollywood. Editions for Downtown and Westwood are coming soon.
