10 Things You Need To Know

Actually, L.A. was built for streetcars. The streetcar lines were dismantled, and now they're being rebuilt as light rail.

Additionally, 85% of the growth in the city is car free and car-lite households

Anyone who thinks otherwise is trapped in the past, but of course not so far in the past as to realize that L.A. was not built for the automobile

This article is 100% wrong. It is based completely on outdated stereotypes. We live car-free and so do fully 20% of the people here according to a local planning commissioner.

We walk everywhere. The public transit is excellent and is ever-expanding. We have ample park-space and more miles of bike lanes every year.

Anyone who says "l.a. is a car city" either doesn't live here anymore or is so confined in their worldview that they haven't awakened to the real world around them.

Car ownership is way down, public transit ridership is way up.

If I'm not mistaken, taking fruit from trees overhanging the sidewalk is totally legal. At least here in Los Angeles. http://www.fallenfruit.org/
