The completion of the Los Angeles Aqueduct 100 years ago this month forever changed the course of the city’s history. But other projects did, too. On November 5, I spoke with Alex Cohen of KPCC’s Take Two about four more civic projects that transformed Los Angeles–the subject of my article in the November 2013 issue of Los Angeles Magazine. Listen here.
And while we’re on the subject (radio), tune into KNX 1070 on December 13. I’ll be featured in the station’s On Your Corner segment about the origins of West Hollywood as Sherman, a streetcar suburb that sprang from the lemon groves of the Cahuenga Valley.
