melrose avenue + la brea boulevard, hollywood

Imagine you're in line at the world-famous Pink's Hot Dogs in Hollywood, and you realize you don't have any cash. You have two choices: risk life + limb jaywalking across La Brea's seven lanes to reach the supermarket ATM across the street, or detour to the intersection at the end of the block--adding up to a quarter-mile to your cash run. A skinnier street would give you the third option: hop through a gap in the slowed traffic, get your cash, and hop back. Imagine dozens of people doing the same thing, and you've got yourself a party! See it narrowed!
