Observing Los Angeles

Is this the worst map ever of LA? Maybe

Someone at Reddit Los Angeles flagged a map of the Los Angeles area in the in-flight magazine for US Airways. "It is accompanied by a map that is either totally misleading, or astoundingly visionary," writes Eve Bachrach at Curbed LA. LOL — I choose the former. It's pretty hard to mis-locate the San Fernando Valley, 1.7 million people and all, but I especially like "Waterfront" and "Neighboring Communities."
