L.A.’s Eastside: Where do you draw the line?

For more than a decade a debate over the proper definition of the city’s “Eastside” has gone unsettled in Los Angeles. Caught in the middle are two clusters of the city’s oldest neighborhoods. There are the historic areas east of the river: Latino neighborhoods such as Boyle Heights. And there’s the new Eastside: hipster enclaves like Silver Lake.

With no official definition, there's no official answer. So we are hosting a debate for readers to draw their own maps and share how they define L.A.’s Eastside.
