At the risk of sounding like a PSA, did you know that the streets south of Pico were named after our presidents, in order of succession? Or that there was a mixup involved in the naming of Los Angeles Street and Main Street? Ah, yes, well, now you do. On this lazy Sunday afternooon (for some us, anyway), you can learn more: the Natural History Museum has a pretty nifty YouTube series on the history of Los Angeles, as told through the origins of Los Angeles street names. I just got through the one below – it’s just a tad dry, but overall, pretty fascinating. Streets names covered in the series include La Cienega Boulevard, Los Feliz Boulevard, Ord Street, Figueora Street, and Aliso Street.
