Oh The Sunset. The first time that I visited I hated it. It felt like a crowded concrete track housing neighborhood set about in a nearly perfect grid. For miles house after house touching the other, block after block, mile after mile. I’d even become accustomed to talking smack about it at social gatherings. Wouldn’t you know I’d fall in love with someone who’d grown up there and happened to madly in love with it. To call him an advocate would be putting it lightly. He’s taken me by foot, by car, by public transit and most importantly always hand in hand all over and shown me the neatest, often gorgeous places, the yummiest restaurants and the most unique parks. Layer by layer The Sunset’s uniqueness was revealed to me. It’s been nearly 3 years and I can truly say that I’ve grown to not only like it but love it in many ways. The Sunset has had an amazing history and has gone through some incredible changes and I for one am thankful that it’s grown to become what it is now.
