Daily News: For The 'Love of the City,’ Take A Walk Through Los Angeles to The Beach



Thanks to the Los Angeles Daily News and writer Richard Guzman for Sunday's write-up of the Great Los Angeles Walk:

As they’ve done for more than a decade now, hundreds of people are expected to gather in the morning at a downtown L.A. park on the Saturday before Thanksgiving.
They will be there for the same reason, but it’s not a for a political cause, or to protest or to raise money for something or even to do some pre-emptive calorie burning before Thanksgiving.
They’ll be there just to go for a walk, albeit a 14.5 mile walk through Pico Boulevard where they’ll stroll out of downtown, down to the edge of Koreatown and pass by landmarks like Powers Place, the city’s shortest street.
They’ll also walk by the old homes of Alvarado Terrance and myriad small mom-and-pop restaurants as they make their way to the ocean all as part of the 11th annual Great Los Angeles Walk.
