  1. OMG, GQ says Silver Lake is “in the east side of Los Angeles”. Nuclear blast!!!!!!
    LA would be a much more beautiful place if we didn’t have all of these ugly utility poles
    and wires hanging everywhere. Put ’em underground!

  2. It’s a pretty clueless article. Koreatown is more “chill” than Silver Lake. Hahahahahaha.

  3. Mr. Kapoor and Eastsider, Thank you for the gorgeous photograph!
