Big Parade to take hikers through L.A.'s public stairways
Today, the maps were released with extremely detailed instructions on how to join in the fun at any staircase (they don't expect you to do the whole thing) -- even public transit notes are included.
Here are some other goings-on around Web L.A.:
Downtown tower update: Curbed L.A. has an update on the mysterious downtown tower proposed by the Meruelo Maddux firm:
Meanwhile, downtowners still sound very surprised by the tower. "We are just now being made aware of the project," said DLANC President Russell Brown. But should they be? Maybe this is a good time to remind everyone that last July, Meruelo was boasting that he was going to soon announce a new South Park tower.
Silver Lake boardwalk could be scrapped: The Eastsider L.A. reports that the Silver Lake Boardwalk may be shelved for another way to connect the walking path around the reservoir:
The boardwalk was proposed to close the last gap in a walking trail circling the Ivanhoe and Silver Lake reservoirs… But many residents thought it was not a good idea, raising concerns about whether the raised walkway would be too narrow to whether dog urine would weaken the wood structure.
No parking districts for Venice: Yo! Venice! is hosting a robust discussion of a recent California Coastal Commission vote against "overnight parking districts" for Venice locals.
