I bought a condo in Atwater Village one year ago. Before that, I lived in West Hollywood. Before that, I lived in New York City. Until I moved to Atwater Village one year ago, I believed that life in Los Angeles could be tolerable at best. I had loved New York like a husband. I had no idea that I would fall in love with my street, my neighborhood, the park, the river, and my home the way I have. I'm not divorced from New York, nor is it a formal separation even, but I am enjoying a torrid love affair outside of my marriage to the city.
Inspired by the fabulous blog Atwater Village Newbie, I've decided to keep better track of the wonderful things I experience living in this quiet and little-known corner of Los Angeles.
