      Very nice!
      HEATH'Nz RIP!

      so along with all the improvements, I guess we can expect to see new gang graffiti:
      HEATH'Nz vs. HILL-dWellrz

So Pico Union shares a good deal with Echo Park community, and could be considered a part of it, and could simultaneously be part of another neighborhood or area. It is interesting to me how these boundaries form, but they are clearest when there is a buffer, like the dead zone around Beaudry and Temple. I would suggest, for those uncomfortable with a less than active area being part of their community, that they consider the benefits of a buffer that clearly delineates a community. It does make it easier to distinguish where we can let our interests remain focused and what we can let others worry about. Pico Union is a pretty much perfect example of the other scenario, where there is no buffer and responsibilities are less clear...
