    I think the 4700 block of West 4th is Point Grey, not Kits

  2. Bill Barilko says:

    If it’s 4th & Blanca that’s the 3700 block not 4700 as posted.

  3. Trish says:

    West 4th and Blanca is 4700; 3700 block is West 4th and Alma.

    Mos’ def’ West Point Grey, and at the border with UBC.

    It’s content like this that makes me wonder: is it pure ignorance on the part of the author (i.e. does he just not know the geography of this blog’s namesake?) or is it an attempt to up the word/post count by blogging anything *remotely* related to Kits, even if it isn’t in Kits.

    Don’t want to sound like the nastiest anonymous commenter ever, but posts like this don’t exactly help this site’s credibility or relevancy.

    Or as the kids say these days…”FAIL.”

    …Or it is simply trying to advise people on the west side of Vancouver to be aware and safe. Seriously people…I’m appalled there were no comments about the concern of this individual instead everyone is in a tizzy over community borders. Sad.

    I wish that the author would follow blogging best practices and use strikeout to indicate when the post is edited after the fact, as in this case. Else, those comments posted before the edit seem to be unclued. Thanks for considering that.

    Good point, Andrea. Allow me to be the first to express concern about the attack victim. I’ve since heard that a baseball bat was the suspected weapon. Few would enjoy, none deserve, an interaction like that, whether delivered in Kits, West Point Grey, DTES, or wherever.
