And so do the rivers – The Arroyo Seco and the Los Angeles River hemmed in by concrete walls. You gotta walk up a narrow staircase lined with piss and vinegar to get to this spot. Trains roar by filled with people. Cars, mostly containing one person, scream past on their way to somewhere. Who wants to go shopping when you can come HERE? My sister agrees.
