Eric Brightwell and his maps

Los Angeles, the sprawling metropolis known for its iconic palm trees, Hollywood glitz, and diverse neighborhoods, has always been a city of unique stories and hidden treasures. And in our latest installment of "L.A. Untangled," we delve deep into the City of Angels with a fascinating conversation featuring Eric Brightwell.

In this eye-opening video, we had the privilege of sitting down with Eric Brightwell, an L.A. aficionado whose passion for the city goes far beyond the surface. Eric's floor-to-ceiling map of Los Angeles is a testament to his love for the city, and in our conversation, he shared insights on neighborhood boundaries and the intriguing choice of not owning a car in LA.
