THE METRO Expo Line is (FINALLY) due to open on April 28th, Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa announced yesterday Test and press rides this weekend. It's the first leg of a highly-contested stretch of rail that will snake through the westside of Los Angeles, much of it on existing railroad ties.
The video above "imagines" what the *next* step of the ride will look like as is presses further westward in Santa Monica. It's a kick for me to watch this as it slides through landmarks I grew up seeing and often wondered what was behind or under "there."
I'd be happy to feel as if *all* of L.A. were mine again, in that it was still a thick collection of short stories I could dip in and out of when I like and in any order.
