Pedestrian Infrastructure in LA Neighborhood a Study in Contrasts
Reporter Sahra Sulaiman talked to residents who expressed frustration at poorly-placed or missing street furniture. She found decrepit benches positioned in full sun; neglected planters; and redundant lean bars at Metro bus stops. The contrast with nearby improvements is especially noticeable on Cesar Chavez, a bustling commercial corridor.
“The lack of investment in Boyle Heights’s streets is troubling, considering how dependent so much of the community is on transit, biking, and/or walking,” Sulaiman writes.
