Like the City of Angels itself, the LA River isn't always what it appears to be.
As the Los Angeles River is "beautified" a wonderful array of art is gracing its concrete banks.
The sounds of nature intermingling with the noise of the Freeway or the scream of a jet engine, is what makes the LA River such a vivid soundscape.
I never thought I would say this, but I need to get a native plant guide for New York City. The expanding parks of the Big Apple are becoming a refuge for native flora.
