Hollywood's First Pedestrian Alley Now Open Off Cahuenga
Hollywood's first pedestrian-only zone, the East Cahuenga Pedestrian Alley, is finally open. Nicknamed the "EaCa Alley," the walk-friendly area between Cahuenga Boulevard and Cosmo Street and Selma Avenue, is finally a reality after almost four years of planning.
The EaCa Alley "features outdoor dining and patio space," describes ABC7, adding: "City councilman Eric Garcetti says until now, the alley was filled with crime and grime, including potholes and pools of stagnant water."
CurbedLA elaborates that the alley space had been illegally locked and consequently blocked to foot traffic, which Garcetti's 2008 motion sought to eradicate and improve upon. Like L.A. I'm Yours, we're also stoked to hear this space is finally open, and hope to take a stroll there soon.
The EaCa Alley will be joined by another similar foot-friendly space, notes CurbedLA: "Selma is also set to get a pedestrian alley on the other side of Cahuenga, to go along with the Dream Hollywood hotel project."
