The neighborhood of Silver Lake is getting Los Angeles' first experimental pedestrian plaza as part of a pilot program that draws inspiration from San Francisco and New York. It will be called "Sunset Triangle Plaza" and is adjacent to where a twice-weekly farmer's market takes place. As reported by laist
