In my time in Los Angeles I have found that there are two kinds of residents: Those of us who become fiercely protective of the river, and those of us who quite honestly don't even know that it's there. On that sweltering morning, standing on a prison, disoriented by my first true 360-degree view of my city, I admit it took me a few minutes to find it. But it was there, a strip of dark blue-green ribboning its way through the chalk-white channel. After seeing the plans for its future, and the designers who are so invested in them, in my mind, I was already swimming in it.
