"Were it not for the Los Angeles River, the town that shares its title would not be exactly where it is today. Ended up it not for the Los Angeles River, Los Angeles would not be at all. The Los Angeles River has always been at the heart of whichever human local community is in the basin: Gabrielino village, Spanish outpost, Mexican pueblo, American metropolis. The river has been asked to play many roles. It has supplied the citizens of the metropolis and basin with water to drink and unfold amidst their grapes, oranges, and other crops. It has been an instrument by which people could locate on their own on the landscape. It has been a essential dividing line, not only between east and west, north and south, but among races, courses, neighborhoods. . . . [T]he river has also been a place in which tips and beliefs about the previous, current, and future of Los Angeles have been raised and contested." William Deverell, Whitewashed Adobe.
