The Uncoolification of Abbot Kinney

New, 7 comments

The LA Times checked in this weekend on the uncoolification of Abbot Kinney and: it is continuing! Chain stores are filling up the crazily expensive storefronts, "Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to turn the former Broadway Gymnastics building at the corner of Main Street into his office and a small restaurant," and a boutique hotel is on the way. One Venetian, who has perhaps not noticed that everyone in her neighborhood is a millionaire now, says "It's a street for tourists, people from outside the area, but not a street for the people who live here."
