What's in a Name for Six Metro Stations?

New, 26 comments

If you are into place naming, the Thursday hearing of the Metro Board of Directors should be fun. According to the Source, the board will consider changing the names of six rail stops, at the request of "various people." The proposals include changing the Blue and Green Lines' Imperial/Wilmington/ Rosa Parks to Willowbrook/Rosa Parks and the Blue Line's 103rd Street/Kenneth Hahn to 103rd St/Watts Towers/Kenneth Hahn. Even the Expo Line's as-yet-unopened Venice/Robertson station could become the Culver City station. The cost of changing station names could run between $115,000 and $582,000.[The Source]
