Google maps checks Skid Row, DTLA glosses it over still…

From http://www.downtownlawalks.com/   Skid Row is MIA here- (the empty white space)

I am obsessed with Skid Row being or not being on a map if you have seen any of my past blog posts. Currently, Google has Skid Row on it’s map! I feel vindicated because it was not there 6 months ago or so. The red arrows on the map up top show how Google could shift ever so slightly their neighborhood names if one were to get nitpicky. The DTLA official touristy maps with cute icons continue to ignore Skid Row. Maybe we just need a cool icon?

  1. The bathroom at Pershing Square has a map that lists Midnight Mission as if it were Skid Row.  I reference it in my Name the Overlap article with photo. How about the new signage of MM as your cool icon?
