Wilshire Boulevard.

The iconic Boulevard that connects Downtown Los Angeles to the Santa Monica beaches by way of Mid-Town, Korea Town, Larchmont, Miracle Mile, Fairfax, Beverly Hills, Westwood, Brentwood, West L.A. and Santa Monica itself, doesn’t capture the world’s attention.   Heck, it doesn’t even get a mention in “I Love L.A.

But Angelenos know how important the street is.  The above graphic was created by local artist and designer Brian Micheal Gossett as part of the outreach for the LA/2B program.  The Los Angeles Departments of City Planning and Transportation (LADOT) partnered with GOOD Corps, to create an interesting and interactive experience for people to participate in the process of creating a new mobility plan for the city, and this infographic shows how streets do more than just transport us from A to B.

There will be more of these inforgraphics released as the project moves forward, and Streetsblog will do it’s best to bring those to you as they become public.  It’s hardly news to Streetsblog readers that streets are for more than moving cars, but it’s always nice to see that simple concept displayed in a way that is new and interesting.
