S.Vermont Ave Corridor

Images from the S.Vermont Corridor in South Central Los Angeles. The area has seen very slow growth and redevelopment since the 1992 rioting. Developers and land owners have balked on several large developments and nothing is planned for the near future. Land speculators are waiting for gentrification to arrive, and large businesses and projects have been scared off from the 1965 and 1992 LA riots.
