Born n raised here. It's sad to see Venice Beach get gaffled by these bougie transplants and the sucka ass politicians catering to them. Nothing wrong with the boardwalk, its nature is relatively the same it's been since I can remember. They're just catering to all the new white folk moving in at the expense of the locals who have made Venice what it is. Piece by piece they manipulate the power, It's called gentrification.
