I have a friend who loves to walk. He’s walked the full length of Sunset for his birthday, faced being followed by a coyote and streets with no sidewalks.
He regularly walks from his home in Koreatown to South Pasadena. He joined me for Saturday’s Cruise Night and said since it was such a lovely evening, he’d walk home to Koreatown. What he thought was a causal comment stuck out in my mind when he said that the only time he feels unsafe as a pedestrian is when he walks in Glendale due to the “bad drivers who have no regard for pedestrians.”
