New Angeles Magazine: How Far East?

A new magazine devoted to the art and culture of LA’s Eastside, New Angeles Monthly, edited by Nikki Bazar, hits the newsstands and the web. In her editor’s note, she writes:

Almost as soon as we began, I discovered people have some pretty strong opinions about what constitutes the city’s “Eastside.” Where does the western boundary begin? Is it the L.A. River? Western Avenue? The 405 Freeway?

The debate continues here, and here, and here. Just for the record, the LA River is the dividing line, and no, it’s not a fluid border.

Ken Layne interviews Mike Davis, but alas, no tornado questions.

In the same issue, Maxwell Harwitt writes about on CRA’s plan for a walkable South LA and Michael Saltzman on Grand Performances new season of music.
