Metro's Gold Line Map Inconsistency
Yes, I love to be nitpicky on some things -- and it especially bugs me when things aren't consistent. Take the new Gold Line map found on the Metro, which divides the train's stops by city: Pasadena, South Pasadena, Los Angeles, Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles.
Wait. One of these things is not like the other. Boyle Heights is not a city, but a community within Los Angeles City Limits.
That'd be fine, I suppose, except that the map chooses not to recognize other L.A. neighborhoods. Why the love for Boyle Heights, but not Highland Park? Chinatown? Little Tokyo?
Yes, like I said, nitpicky. But someone's gotta be!
