I agree, we need mobility. I wouldn't like to live in a city made of little ghetto where you only see the same people because they all work, shop and live at the same place.
Downtown LA needs to be transformed in a real living bustling downtown that attract people from all over Los Angeles metropolitan area (as Manhattan do) not in a segregated village.
The only way to reduce the number of car is by creating mass public transportation and developing the city around these transports.
Love your emoticon!
Maybe you and I are just not "out-of-the-box thinkers" but I agree that plain mass transit has more potential than science fiction ideas. I would like to see Broadway closed to traffic at some point and maybe several surrounding streets as well on week-ends, but that is some way off at this point.
The warehouse district does have some potential for being an area where experimental ideas can be tried.
