    Curbed Reader Comment Round Up

    The best posts usually originate in our comments. To give appreciation to our amazing (and sometimes angry) commenters we feature their broad strokes of wisdom in a tidy comment roundup.

    1) Controversial Silver Lake Stoplight Likely Coming "Im all for it, if they could time it to the other lights on S-Lake Blvd. City always forgets that part and it ends up causing major bottlenecks. I live a block from that intersection and walk around the lake 4-5 times a week and there isnt anywhere to cross north of the dog park until you get to Glendale Blvd. Its a really treacherous stretch. Seems like the best plan.... "

    2) Wednesday PM Linkage " it's the lack of affordable housing period. talented young people arent' all artists. they can be engineers, programmers, accountants, entrepreneurs. college educated professionals (making $80-150K/year) in all areas are being priced out and having to settle for a crap home in LA just doesn't cut it for many and I see the rationale behind the argument. it's not about living in bel air or malibu but not living in some shack in north hills either. the arguments about it's high cost are shite. prices are artificially high due to a wall street/lender greed fiasco. home prices being aligned to incomes makes So Cal more competitive."
