Los Angeles St and 3rd St
2013 Dec 31 This intersection has long been home to some homeless folks. Their things seem fairly protected and I believe that there is usually someone with the stuff to keep watch. It is possible that all these things belong to one person. I will check to see who is there next time I am in the area.
Wilshire Blvd between Rampart and LaFayette Park
Arroyo Seco encampment
2012 September This homeless encampment was almost totally abandoned after a sweep. I found this encampment in Highland Park, tightly squeezed between the 134 Freeway and channelized Arroyo Seco. Tami, the primary resident, had been arrested. Dante kindly shook my hand and related the struggle of having to relocate before everything was thrown away. Dante said, "Some people might think it's trash, but these are our things."
