Quick trip to LA. Glad this week is almost over. One more stop then I get back to Brooklyn. Whenever I’m in LA I always stay downtown. It’s more real to me. Or at least it was. It’s different these days. Other people found it and now some fancy restaurants have opened up and the once decayed art deco buildings were giving a new shine. Hell, they’re even building a Whole Foods. Downtown is definitely different….but also the same. Skid row is still there. Pay attention and you will see the homeless on every corner. I wonder if the city and surrounding counties will continue to dump them here when the neighborhood has fully turned.
