Thanks as always to Alysia Gray Painter for writing about the Great Los Angeles Walk on NBC LA's website! Here's this year's story. Alysia has long helped spread the word; in this year's piece, she notes:
unlike many of the Great Los Angeles Walks of past years, the 2019 outing will not head from downtown to the ocean along a (mostly) single thoroughfare; rather, this one will start in Arcadia, toodle through Pasadena, and then saunter down Figueroa, with a final destination of City Hall.
Vintage Route 66 sights, the iconic Colorado Bridge, the actual Eagle Rock, Highland Park's many charms, and Los Angeles State Historic Park will be some of the pass-throughs and pass-bys along the way.
The only remaining question is this: Can you pre-walk-off a sweet potato casserole before you bake it?
Well... That's wishful thinking. But what's real? This real gem of a city we call home, and the chance to admire it on a nice November day, step by step, alongside a bunch of other enthusiastic urban adventurers.
