  • Casey Caplowe, co-founder of Good Magazine, settled into a 1912 Elysian Heights bungalow only to have it destroyed by fire two years later. He started over by building a new home on the site with a  “modern Japanese/Scandinavian/Californian” sensibility. Design Sponge

  1. That traffic signal on York is going to make getting in and out of the Taco Spot parking lot a real pain the ass. Making a left out of there will become impossible. They need to add an entrance/exit on 63 so patrons can use the new light to alleviate the awkward turn out from the shopping center.

      Read this post on weed, man!

    • I think you mean My Taco. And yeah, making a left outta there might become impossible, but I do think this will be better for pedestrian crossings. I’ve almost been hit many times when using the crosswalk there.

  2. Council District 14 stated that “Highland Park activists” are activating a new traffic signal? That doesn’t seem accurate.

  3. Making a left turn exiting the taco spot is ancomplete illegal turn and thats why accidents happen because of idiot people who make those illegal turns
