|THE BLOG OVER AT Silver Lake Gallery Alliance keeps using this phrase, the Five Borroughs.|
Never mind that "Borroughs" is usually spelled "Boroughs." And never mind that New York City established its own Five Boroughs in 1898. I'm just trying to figure out what/where in the world are the Five Borroughs/Boroughs of Los Angeles?
For the first four - based on how artsy Silver Lakers tend to see the world - I guessed Silver Lake, Los Feliz, Echo Park and Atwater Village. The fifth slot goes, according to SLGA's MySpace page, to the "Upper North East."
What the hell is that, Glendale? Montrose? San Fernando? Sylmar?
I'm all about coming up with new ways to divide the city, but why exclude the rest of LA's art scene? And why the consistent misspelling? Ugh.
SLGA's blog is good for sporadic event postings. Might not be the place for neighborhood taxonomy.
