I'd also say that East Hollywood was beginning to gentrifiy, especially towards the tail end of the boom. Shame it stopped. EH, while sorta dumpy, is rich in architecture, cheap ethnic food eats and human scale. Not too mention that it offers good transit access and easy access to the Highland/Vine corridors on Hollywood, the boutiques and cafes in Los Feliz on Hillhurst and Vermont, the greater "hipster" nexus of Silverlake and Echo Park, Koreatown, Griffith Park etc etc. Interesting area it is, with a myriad of ethnicities/races there, including no more or less: Mexicans (well, duh), Salvadorians, Thai, Armenians, Guatemalans, White Americans (of hipster variety, too) and Russians.

If they could do with the trannies, gangs, graffiti and other sleazy/unwanted elements, I'd say this neighborhood has a good chance of booming during the next cycle.

Some photos here: prettyugly.: Hollywood
I love those photos and I also love the photos on the gigantic photo thread.

Los Angeles pics

The photos in the quoted post above seem to be a lot of photos of people and some streetscapes.

Besides graffiti, the number 1 contributor to ugliness (to me) is power lines. Next, bill boards. The oldest, poorest neighborhood without powerlines (and obviously without graffiti) looks better than any neighborhood with powerlines.

Powerlines are an aesthetics killer.

San Pedro. Specifically 90731. Lots of gentrification in the downtown area the last couple of years and the Port of Los Angeles working steadily on renovating the port for tourists.
