Curbed Reader Comment Round-Up

New, 5 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) Los Angeles Times Will Do The Unthinkable "This is doomed from the start - any attempt to make LA neighborhood boundaries match census tract boundaries will inevitably produce mismatches with long-standing well-established neighborhood boundaries. Of all the factors that define Angelenos' "sense of place", census tracts are probably the least important. Though I suppose if they can resist getting dragged into the ludicrous Eastide/Westside wars, they'll be doing well."

2) Old-Timey Subway Renderings from the '80s "Unlike NYC or other cities where the subway is a given, LA needs to draw attention to the existence of its subway in a way that's visible from a car. The stations are overblown, but given transit reality in LA, they do need to be self-promoting."

3) Economy Hasn't Killed Koons Train "1) Jeff Koons is a FREAKIN GENIUS 2) The train is BRILLIANT 3) If you don't like it, I'm sure there's some nice statuary in Omaha you could admire instead."

4) CurbedWire: New Transportation Ideas Needed, 8000 Sunset Honda Update: "The only thing that SCI-Arc project is going to do is give those poor kids something to do while the school collects their fees. I can't wait to see shiny silver cantilevered "pods for efficient movement" done up in 3-D and project titles like"[re]Th(ink_) ing Los(_t_) Angelz" We're not running low on stupid ideas in transit, we're running low on engineering and political decisions to get us out of our cars and into/onto other modes."
