The Mid City West Community Council is hosting a 6th Street Walking Tour this Saturday, Dec. 6th at 10am, walking east on 6th and and discussing what it’s like to walk the street currently, and how other potential configurations of the street would change the experience.

The tour will begin at Four Cafe at Fairfax Avenue and Maryland Drive and end at La Brea Bakery at 6th and La Brea.
Mid City West comprises areas to the west of La Brea Ave and extends to approximately San Vicente, with a sliver of a segment beyond San Vicente along the Third Street corridor. All residents in the larger Hancock Park and Wilshire areas, however, are welcome to join in the walk.
The mile-long walk will be set at a leisurely pace.  After the tour, walkers are encouraged to take the DASH back to the starting location, retrace the route on foot, or stay and enjoy a coffee or meal along La Brea Ave.
