Reclaiming Back Alleys

I am self-confessed alley-cat.
There is something fascinating about the back alleys of L.A. Like experiencing theater backstage -- and what is this city, if not great theater? The L.A.Times has an interesting piece on reclaiming back alleys, or how "Urban planners re-imagine the city's concrete connectors as community oases, replacing trash and crime with trees, grass and swing sets." We certainly see it happening in our 'hood.
