Curbed Reader Comment Round Up

New, 6 comments

The best posts usually originate in our comments. To give appreciation to our amazing (and sometimes angry) commenters we feature their broad strokes of wisdom in a tidy comment roundup.

1) BH Apartment Tears Hole In Space/Time Continuum "it's only 5 short miles to the Wilshire/Western stop. An easy 100min walk. Man, you people are lazy!"

2) Universal Project Could Brings Jobs, Clusterf#@k : "Take the freaking subway, fools. Look, I know that Los Angeles is experiencing growing pains, and that your "suburban lifestyle" is becoming harder to live as this turns into a real, live city. They used to have dairy farms on Manhattan as well, once upon a time. Cities change, and L.A. is a city in its awkward adolescence phase. Pissing into the sea of denser development won't do anyone any good. Let's concentrate instead of making sure that this development happens smartly instead of whining about not being able to zip around in our six thousand pound machines at fifty miles an hour. This is a great spot, because of the transport options, for denser development. I know it sucks, actually coming face to face with your fellow human beings on the subway, but if you can't stand it, vote with your feet. Some exurban wonderland awaits you, and from what I hear, housing is a steal these days in the 909."

3) Sunset Junction Festival: Bad Press Continues "Can't agree more, if there is a cover to be charged then move this "fair" to private land off the publics street. The neighborhood council and the city have blessed this arrangement so best to send inquiries to Eric Garcetti's office and www.silverlakenc.org. Exactly who is the beneficiary of the proceeds? Street beautification? Neighborhood parks? Senior housing, Medical clinics? I smell a rat."
