Red Car Property: Angel of Adelbert

Stuff you missed this year...

Last February, a fence went up on the property line, around a house that had previously been occupied by squatters. Neighbors were surprised by the extent of the encroachment on the Red Car Property.  The Adelbert house was bought by flippers and the squatters moved to a nearby house and adjacent lot on Riverside Drive.  

The Riverside Drive house was similarly was bank owned and since sold to a house flipper.  The squatters continue returning to a lot on Riverside Drive adjacent lot the Red Car Property.  CD13, LAPD, City Attorney, Dept of Building & Safety and LA Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) have been working to move the squatters into actual supportive housing rather than homemade sheds on a dangerous slope, and clean up conditions that drew squatters to the site.

Stuff You Missed This Year is our annual wrap up of interesting photos and things we just didn't have a chance to run, because everything seems to always happen at the same time.
