KCET Departures features Josef from Flying Pigeon LA

Josef Bray-Ali of Flying Pigeon LA on KCET Departures

Before you watch this, let me just apologize in advance to: fashion conscious customers, Mayor Villaraigosa, owners of “yuppie gastro-pubs”, and everyone else I know I slighted in this long, rambling, interview.

The video above is part of the KCET Departures project to document the living history of the Highland Park community. Previous installations of KCET Departures have covered Richland Farms (a South Los Angeles equestrian community), Venice, Chinatown, and the LA River.

As a resident, and now business owner, in North East Los Angeles I can’t tell you how honored I was to have my voice (as a snide, kooky, bike shop owner desperate for internet business) included in this series of mind expanding videos, essays, and slideshows about Highland Park.

Any comments you can leave in a variety of places (because I am such a social media whore): the comment section below; our Facebook page; @flyingpigeonla on our Twitter profile; on the KCET Departures page; or you can email us at info@flyingpigeon-la.com

    My favorite bit? Where you say you went from lone kook to being part of an army of kooks! In all seriousness though, I’m grateful to have the Flying Pigeon in NELA and that you are such a tireless advocate on the community’s behalf.
