1) A Look At Your Renovated Hollywood Palladium "You know how to tell a rendering from a photograph in LA? A rendering always has lots of people walking on the street."
2) Reader Poll: Silver Lake Bungalow for $399,900 "I've noticed an interesting trend on Curbed, where if someone personally dislikes a specific part of an established neighborhood (Silver Lake, Venice, etc.), they then decided that it's not actually a part of said neighborhood. Since when do people get to re-define the boundries in accordance with their personal tastes??

3) NY lofts v. LA lofts "The hell makes SoHo so cultured? Because they have a Prada or Chanel store? A couple of cobblestone streets?

SoHo is nice but it isn't exactly leaps and bounds above DTLA and it certainly won't be in the future."
