Curbed Reader Comment Round-Up

New, 2 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) Subway Dreams Back On: Supervisor Changes Vote "Saying that the Subway to the Sea will only benefit a handful of wealthy westsiders is moronic rhetoric. This is the same line of thinking that brought us such winners as 'Then the terrorists have already won.' Millions of people who do not live on the westside--who CANNOT AFFORD to live on the westside--are spending a lot of time and money sitting in traffic and on long bus rides trying to get to their jobs on the Westside. This subway is for them and for all of us. Sadly, most of the westside douchebags won't actually ride the thing and I don't even care, the ridership will still be off the charts."

2) Improving Sunset Junction: Time For A Jamba Juice? "I've always thought of Sunset Junction (and perhaps Silverlake in general) as the perfect example of a neighborhood that has succeeded in spite of its complete lack of planning. The traffic is loud and fast, the sidewalks are narrow, the street wall is broken up, and there is little shade."

3) Million Dollar Listing Recapped "If you are a guy, an agent is what you do as an alternative to being a waiter while waiting for your big break into the industry. a broker is what you do once you have had a bit speaking part and got a SAG card but never worked in the industry again. If you are a woman, an agent is what you do while trying to snag a rich man so you can get implants and never work again. A broker is what she becomes as a bitter exwife when he trades her in on a younger agent.
