Crenshaw Light Rail of the Future

The Los Angeles Times reported (but you heard it first at the the LP Village visioning meeting earlier this month) that there are very preliminary plans to have a train coast down the boulevard all the way to LAX.

The Over 40 Guide to Los Angeles

The Los Angeles Times asked "four randomly selected people in different parts of the city who are

not quite juniors and not quite seniors" to describe

their favorite weekend.

Of course, Leimert Park made the list. Lawrence Ross, a writer, talked about Rick Kingi's Kajukenbo Defense Institute, Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, Coley's Caribbean Cuisine on Florence and La Brea,… Continue

Lucy Florence tops list of places to see in LA

Conservative blogger and ornery pundit Cobb - strictly old school - compiled a list of places he'd put on a cultural tour of Los Angeles.

"Lucy Florence

Any trip to LA is really not complete without a stop by Leimert Park Village. So the first stop has got to be

the Lucy Florence coffee shop and gallery. The way to get there is… Continue

Leimert Park is the Soul of Los Angeles

What a great week for Leimert Park: More than 100 people attended the unveiling of the city's vision for Leimert Park Village on Thursday; Representatives from City Councilman Bernard Parks' office attended the Sutro Ave. Block Club summer BBQ; and THOUSANDS listened to world-class jazz at the World Stage Jazz Festival.

LA meet Leimert Park - Noon to 7 p.m., Sunday, Aug. 12

How can neighbors that have grown up so close to each other be such strangers. Of course that's the case between you and most of your neighbors. Perhaps it's as simple as that between the amazing neighborhood of Leimert Park and with most of the rest of the people of Los Angeles. We just need a proper introduction.

This weekend it's everyone's chance to exchange pleasantries with a place the people will really want to get to know. You can come here and listen to Jazz or blues or hip… Continue

Superhead is coming to Leimert Park

Wow, I just learned that the famed Karrine Stefans will be appearing at Eso Wan bookstore on September 25th to promote her latest book. I am sickened at the moment..I hope you all share in my disgust. This is the problem that I have with this woman. I purchased the first tell-all book under the assumption that it contained a positive message for younger women: Don't make the same mistakes that I did!!!!. There was no such message in that book, instead it glorified her sexcapades and in my…
