The fancy-shmancy west side is a strange beast. Huge mansions are littered with baby swings that hang from curb-side trees... not front yard- curb side, people.
Almost every house has one, yet we've never seen a child playing on one. Clearly these west side kids don't have time to swing, what with all the shopping to be done on Montana.
Another funny thing about this side of town is that it rains interior design gold. Every other week or so a thick, glossy magazine is tossed onto front lawns like the morning newspaper. How do you subscribe? Apparently just move into a Cape Cod estate off San Vicente and that's it. No mussy forms to fill out. Space magazine is filled with great interior pictures, fun stories, cool adds and high end real estate ads that would make even the Donald or the Oprah blush.
We wonder why you can't get this in Echo Park?
