  1. Can we get a list of all the things “non-latinos” are prohibited from doing in Eastside neighborhoods? So far it’s: writing street vendor reviews, opening small businesses, cleaning sidewalks and parks, ordering coffee, moving in (gentrification), moving out (white flight), bicycling, taking public transportation…I know I’m missing a few more

    • you forgot breathing.

      my favorite part of this story is timoteo’s reaction to his increased popularity:

      ‘Yeah, great, I get to go home earlier. We sold out.'”

      it’s so sad that some folks won’t even accept it when the changes in the neighborhood benefit one of “their own”. it’s selfish beyond belief.

  2. Other than a couple uneducated morons tweeting about long lines and Asians, I don’t see any debate here. The Eater LA article had 3 comments. But that’s what Eater and Curbed are good at….click bait. I wish eastsider wouldn’t stoop to such lowly lows. Oh and “Columbusing”! Let’s ad that to the arsenal of other useless, overused words such as colonization, yuppification, fancification and gentrification.
