Your Choice for the "Fake Eastside" Border
It wasn't much of a contest. When you think of the "Fake Eastside," you think of the neighborhoods East of Western -- in other words, Los Feliz, Silver Lake, Echo Park, East Hollywood, etc. What do you call the Real Eastside? I suppose that's a poll for another day.
In second place is the street that psychologically for me served as an imaginary dividing point in the city (perhaps because it cuts through into the Cahuenga Pass), Highland.
Vermont Ave. got a fair amount of write-in votes, while one smart ass wrote "The 405." Perhaps someone who needs to do a little more exploring around their city.
