Downtown gets smaller

The L.A. Downtown News has eliminated free distribution of its paper in several communities. Here's the note to readers:
Over the holidays we at L.A. Downtown News made a permanent adjustment to our distribution. We are now concentrating our free distribution more narrowly on Downtown and its close-in environs. We have kept all our historic distribution throughout Downtown, Echo Park and Silverlake – nearly 1000 locations. But we stopped distribution to Pasadena, Glendale and Larchmont. Apologies to readers in those areas a little further from Downtown, but it just got too expensive to keep anything other than our primary distribution.
