Walking a City Where the Car is King

Sidewalking: Coming to Terms with Los Angeles

Los Angeles is a city that’s constantly reinventing itself and, in many ways, a place where people come to reinvent themselves.

It’s also a place defined by cars and car culture – where people drive from point A to point B, rarely stopping along the way.

Ulin, who is also the books editor of the LA Times, joined us in the studio to talk about his experience walking the streets of LA.
