The Los Angeles Recordings: L.A. River

9:31 AM PST on February 14, 2013


Kwasi Boyd-Bouldin of Nonstndrd / Snapshot Galleria.

"The Los Angeles River is one of those iconic, overlooked aspects of Los Angeles that remains under appreciated by the population at large. It runs through some of the oldest neighborhoods in the city and riding through can give you a history lesson about what life in L.A. is like and how it's changing for better or worse. It's also holy ground for urban art, some of the dopest graf pieces in the history of Los Angeles (unfortunately mostly buffed) were done along the river banks. The new bike paths make the river a lot more accessible than in the past and has generated a lot of interest in preservation and possibly transforming it further so time's running out to document it as it exists today."
