A neighbor named Norah sent me a poetic and photographic depiction of her morning walk around the Kester District of Van Nuys, a visible symptom of a metropolitan area in trouble.

“I was walking my dog around my Van Nuys neighborhood this morning, enjoying the great fall weather, when I stopped to admire this sign on a rusty gate advertising a LUXURY (underlined) apartment on Kester Avenue, complete with fabulous amenities such as a plastic bag on the lawn, and a mattress and condom wrapper located conveniently on the sidewalk right outside the front door. Does it get any more luxurious?
Tragic.”
