What those homeless camps along L.A.'s freeways mean for a public space once above it all - LA Times

Under the settlement agreement, the homeless are allowed to sleep on sidewalks nightly anywhere (not just on skid row). There is a requirement for the homeless to roll their tents up between 6am and 9pm.

This. NYRumorDude spreading false info once again. Hobo tent cities are all over downtown (and other parts of LA for that matter) and are not just contained to skid row.

Yes, whole blocks. The area north of the civic center and south of Chinatown might as well be Skid Row 2.0.

You couldn't be more wrong. You see them under freeway overpasses. One example is under the 134 freeway heading towards Pasadena.

There was also several tents for several on Melrose near Vermont, not even downtown LA, never mind Skid Row.

People who actually live here have more of an understanding and experience than someone who visits.

That is not correct and has not been true for nearly a decade.

From the LA Times in 2007, "Under the new deal, the homeless can sleep on sidewalks from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. anywhere in the city as long as they do not block access to doorways or driveways or completely block the sidewalk."

This is still in effect today although there have been many twists and turns in the city's battles in the courts over this issue.

forgot or didn't feel the need to add the times in my post....

You can't really have tents up and never taken down 24/7 in nearly all places outside of skid row....

Both of these photos were taken this afternoon (about 1pm). The first one is the freeway underpass (110 Freeway) along 8th street in Downtown. The second is on Wilshire Blvd in Central City West (west of the 110 freeway).

Of course, Skid Row is the epicenter...I don't think anyone in this thread has disputed that.

The tents are up 24 hours a day on Vermont by LACC and at Vermont and Hollywood at the Los Feliz Triangle. LAPD doesn't enforce the rules anymore, or when they do, they allow them to move across the street for the day.
