On Moorpark Street: LACityNerd Plays Word Association

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

Throughout this series, we will be asking fellow bloggers about their thoughts on Moorpark Street. LACityNerd summarizes a good list for us to start off with:

When I think of Moorpark Street, I think of...

-The most visible & concentrated destruction after the 1994
earthquake - especially looking up and down the streets as one rides
along it Fulton and Van Nuys Blvd.
-A short cut/alternate to Riverside Drive in Toluca Lake during rush hours.
-Bob Hope & his annual Cresh (Nativity scene).
-How it dead ends at Savon in Sherman Oaks and then re-appears farther west.
-The Rancho Los Encinos on Moorpark in Encino.
-LA River.
-The apartment at Coldwater (i think) and Moorpark called the "Parkmoor."
-The Studio City AND Sherman Oaks branch libraries.
-Barones (the original).
-Moorpark Park.
-Flooded intersections.
-Irregularly street widening, and capital improvement projects of
the City that never seem to come to fruition.
