Los Angeles Street Level

Seeking Accessibility for All

About

The goal of Los Angeles Street Level is to raise awareness, visually, about challenges for wheeled access to the city’s sidewalks. Los Angeles is a rewarding city  for exploration and whether traveling by foot or via a wheeled device there is an abundance of beautiful and interesting sights. It is in this spirit that Street Level can reveal some blind spots that appear to exist in the accessible infrastructure of the city. Hopefully our sidewalks can be improved for accessibility, as an asset of civic pride, and means for all explorers to enjoy Los Angeles from street level.
