Damien Newton at Streetsblog LA announced this morning that he's moved from the Fairfax District area to the Westside. "Westside motorists are amongst the worst in the city when it comes to sharing the road," the avid cyclist noted in addition to the lack of trains and a spotty bus system. "... a missed bus means a missed meeting," he said. Add to that fewer pedestrians, a limited bicycle infrastructure and a street grid problem. However, there's the good, such as the bikeway along Ballona Creek and the planned one along the Expo Line. And we'll add some great pocket neighborhoods of joy like Palms and Little Osaka. What's your favorite part of the Westside?
