Venice's Place in the Cultural Landscape

October 04, 1992

I am a concerned citizen. Los Angeles is my home, Venice my "hood." I do not like what I see, hear, feel and sense happening in Venice.

Someone has decided that LAPD should enforce an old city ordinance which greatly reduces an artist's chance of earning his/her living from money made on the Venice Boardwalk.

Gone are the Red Cars, Angels Flight, beachside amusement parks and the Rams. Let's not see Abbot Kinney's dream of an artists' enclave give way to greedy, entrepreneurial interests. Venice is Venice. It's probably the most generally appealing people-gathering place in our entire country.

I would challenge anybody, anywhere, to show me a place on Planet Earth that better exemplifies racial, cultural or spiritual integration.

It's important to me that the uniqueness of Venice be preserved.
