This week in class we are talking about the future and how to solve the housing crises. I would like to share with everyone the story of a little place in Los Angeles called Old Town.

Abandoned store fronts, homelessness and drugs plagued Colorado Blvd. Today it is a thriving shopping district that attracts people from miles around. To learn more, visit this website.
