Los Angeles

If you came across this picture, you wouldn't think Los Angeles. At least not present day Los Angeles. Where can you still find open hills and open land in Los Angeles? Where is the Borders/Starbucks/Cost Plus mall? Where are the houses upon houses? Broken down truck, brown hills and snow in the distance. But maybe the graffiti on the truck door would be a giveaway.

One of the many reasons we are so lucky to live in Northeast Los Angeles.

I walked all over that area when I first moved to the neighborhood. I wish that someone would find a way to make that land stay that way forever.

Personally, I want the private land owners to be able to sell the right to develop to another land owner in a different part of the City.

In downtown a lot of historic buildings were able to do that, and I think it is a good way to preserve things, and also make sure that everyone involved benefits from preservation efforts.

Cool Ubrayj. Good idea.

Heard the Sereno-ians are really fighting to keep Elephant Hill undeveloped.

Hope they win.
