Silver Lake neighborhood walk

Thank you, thank you to all of the volunteers who joined me in walking the Silver Lake neighborhood on Saturday morning. We knocked on doors in the southeastern area (between Sunset Boulevard and the 101 freeway) to see what neighbors had to say about their community and provide information on how to get help from city government.

There is really no better way to learn about what's happening in a neighborhood than to walk its streets. And one of the things I love about walking Los Angeles is that behind every door is an interesting story. Who could have predicted, for example, that hidden behind the door of a single-family home was a neon art installation?
