You Can't Call it the Eastside, So What Do You Call It?
Fed up with those who erroneously label Silver Lake, Echo Park and other so-called hipster neighborhoods as in within the Eastside, and left with no general sobriquet for the area, Curbed LA is calling for submissions for its regional renaming (basically, the real Eastside is east of the L.A. River, but it always seems to be up for debate).
Should it be hipside? How about upside? Or maybe people should just leave neighborhood names as is. Whatever the case, the best suggestions will be voted upon and the winner will become the area's name for Curbed LA posts. Whether it becomes part of the vernacular or not, only the future will tell.
