I know. It's a shame.

People in LA like the water. Look at the price increases in Venice, Santa Monica. MDR. The palisades, malibu, brentwood have always been upscale.

-I think with hollywood......you had a major decline in the 50's and 60's. Old hollywood was gone (i.e. the brown derby), and by the middle 80's, people didn't know what to do with it. It took some time to bottom and turn around (I think for developers to feel comfortable putting so much money into projects). There are too many quieter areas of LA to live in.

I wonder how much a home or apartment was in 1985?

-Long term, it seems like the area isn't designed at all for modern LA traffic and tourists. Look at the hollywood bowl. I've enjoyed it for years, but talk about an outdated design.
