On Moorpark Street: LACityNerd Plays Word Association
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.
-The apartment at Coldwater (i think) and Moorpark called the "Parkmoor."
-The Studio City AND Sherman Oaks branch libraries.
-Barones (the original).
-Irregularly street widening, and capital improvement projects of
the City that never seem to come to fruition.
Many of these items will be covered in the days to come.
