  1. Congrats on the LA Weekly award–of course I concur in their judgement–completely!

  2. Hooray!~

    Well deserved Jesus.


  3. RIGHT ON!!! The LA Weekly definitely got it right.

    Congrats Jesus. You deserve those props… and more!

  4. Congrats Jesus.
    A great compliment, and recognition for all your hard work in getting this splendid neighbourhood forum up and running.
    It provides great information, splendid discussions, and a great view of all the varied people and thoughts that make up this part of LA.

  5. Congratulations! Now you need to step it up for the 2012 award. You should add Olvera Street, and Chinatown to the news by neighborhood section. These are two really historic areas, that should be included in your blog. California State Historic Park is having Food Truck Chowdown this Sat. June 11th. at 6:00, $10.00 entry, and I found the info on everyblock. Victor Heights is better known as the hills of Chinatown anyway. Been in Angeleno Hgts since 1963, and barely found out last year that the hills were called Victor Hgts. How come they don’t have any signs that say Victor Hgts? Keep up the great work! Thanks!

  6. It is definitely the best neighborhood blog, Jesus! It keeps us well informed, and affords us the opportunity of reading about and exchanging ideas and thoughts with residents in our eclectic neighborhoods. It lends a depth and breadth to everything from street signs (“Please pick up your dog shit. Thank you!”) to crime, music and local personalities (The Silver Lake Walking Man).

    The comments can be funny, touching, witty, acerbic or downright annoying. But rarely boring. Keep up the good work, Jesus. You pour your heart and time into this, and we appreciate you!
