abbot kinney boulevard, venice

To me, Abbot Kinney represents the apex of haute California culture: hipster entrepreneurs lazily skate by on longboards past boutique shops and cutting-edge architecture on a road dense enough with street-facing touch points to create a modern village bubbling with life, morning to evening. Walking this street is still a one-sided affair, however, with ever-circumspect pedestrians checking over their shoulders for cars, who tend to use this straightaway as a shortcut from Main to Venice Blvd. Didn't they ever hear that patience is a virtue? Stripping out a few lanes would keep those cars in check and let this Westside gem shine that much brighter. See it narrowed!
