Your Daily Thread Steps Into the Great Eastside/Fake Eastside Debate
When I wrote about eco-friendly site Your Daily Thread's "Eastside Green Guide," I tweaked them for referring to the Los Feliz/Silver Lake/Echo Park/Atwater Village areas as the "Eastside."
As you know, purists point out that the "Eastside" is East of the river -- something that those neighborhoods aren't. I've taken to call those 'hoods the "Fake Eastside."
Your Daily Thread caught quite a bit of grief, however, and has now renamed the Guide. Check out the "Neighborhood Guide" to Atwater Village, Echo Park, Los Feliz and Silver Lake here.
