Battle for ‘The Heart’ of Silver Lake

Hosted by

The latest dispute over greater density in Los Angeles is focused on Sunset Junction, where Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards meet in Silver Lake. Some residents complain that a new apartment building will destroy a treasured neighborhood. They say a music school backed by Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers would preserve its hip identity and iconic history. It’s a paradigm for conflicts all over LA.

Also, what’s the 8th “coolest” city in America? Some are saying it's Riverside, California… but who?
