Wilshire Blvd Walk?

A westside friend long ago suggested walking the length of Wilshire Blvd, in order to get far better views of interesting detail than one gets when driving.

Early this January, on a week-long visit to LA, Lisa and I, on a whim, started walking east on Wilshire, from Fairfax. The idea was to walk to the eastern end of Wilshire...and to do the Fairfax to SM part at a later date. We only made it to Alvarado, because a friend who works downtown was waiting for us to get together for lunch at Clifton's.

The walk was definitely worthwhile; we saw quite a few things that I'd never noticed on hundreds of drives from Fairfax to the start of Wilshire, and got to see quite a few more in far more detail than before.

How about getting together a group of members of this bulletin board to do the downtown-to-Fairfax walk, or a Fairfax-to-SM walk some Sat. or Sun? Wouldn't it be especially nice if a certain member who writes for LA Magazine and another who's writing a book on The Blvd were part of the group?

Dave

PS We'll be in LA from 6/23 to 7/15; many of our Sats are already committed, but we're free virtually every Sun.

Funny you should mention it, I did the Wilshire walk several years ago and it changed my life. Besides the temporary blisters from tackling it from Grand Ave all the way to Saint Monica, it was the inspiration for my growing Wilshire ephemera collection, the Wilshire history book and (indirectly) the Wilshire driving tour I'm helping the LAConservancy with.

The idea to tackle it from downtown to Fairfax covers the best parts as it's Eastern end is more rich in visual history and still-standing landmarks. Sunday may open a few more church doors, so that would be a good day to take another long walk through what used to be Mr. Wilshire's barley field.

FYI: I saw some of the still-in-progress pages for the Wilshire book today. Great photos!

That was a great lunch. Thanks again Dave. Sorry you couldn't make it out here for the LAConservancy's tour -- it was wonderful! I think I spent at least two hours at Johnie's alone!

So far, Amazon still has the best price on the Wilshire book. That price will go up after the book hits general bookstores so pre-order it sooner rather than later.
