LETTERS TO THE TIMES

Customers' New Choices Hurt Westwood Village

August 23, 2004

Every time The Times writes an article about Westwood Village it mentions the demise of the area, attributing it to the shooting in 1988 ("Westwood Project Gets City's OK," Aug. 19).

I lived in Westwood for 15 years. The popularity of Westwood as a destination during that time was due to the fact that there was no other place in the city where you had street life.

Along came the rejuvenation of Century City, Third Street Promenade, Universal CityWalk, Melrose, Old Pasadena, etc., and now the Grove.

As someone who used to go to the Village a lot, I now visit seldom because of all the other choices. So please stop attributing the demise to one shooting that hardly anyone remembers.
