OK, I knew where Franklin Heights was, and I knew where Atwater Village was because of the Bigfoot Lodge…but until reader Bobby submitted a comment about his new neighborhood sign, I had no idea there was a Franklin Village, too. But after his wife spotted the sign, Bobby got a photo, and remarked that the neighborhood was home to “local hangouts of Birds, Upright Citizen Brigade Theater, and the Scientology Celebrity Center.”
So now there’s a Franklin Heights, a Franklin Village…and I have no idea whether either of them even connect to Franklin Ave. Neither does the city. The L.A. City Nerd has actually had to start a quest to define all L.A. neighborhoods in Google maps because even Los Angeles doesn’t have a map of all these new neighborhoods. (The collection of neighborhood signs is up on the Flickr group.)
Anyone defined the boundaries of Franklin Village yet? And by the way, where’s MY SiFi sign?!?
