Oi Vey: A Columbia Student on Subway to the Sea

New, 32 comments

To be fair, Anna Kelner's piece in the Huffington Post has good intentions and solid points, the biggest one being that a completion of the Wilshire subway would be good for LA. But the Columbia student references NYC and the magical experience of riding the rails there ("I observed a group of flamboyant black men perform complex dance moves"), insinuates the Watts Towers are Downtown, and disses the Westside, saying the Eastside feels like a "real city." And, oh yeah, we "less vibrant" Angelenos love our "backyards." [Huffington Post]
