More on South-Central L.A.

October 29, 2006

I found the story about South-Central Los Angeles especially interesting, because as a young, white grad student at USC in the early 1950s, I lived for about a year on East 66th Street, a couple of blocks east of Central Avenue ("What It Is. [And What It Was.]," by Lynell George, Oct. 8). My daughter was born while we lived there, and I remember my wife wheeling her in the buggy down to Florence Avenue to shop. At that time the area was mixed, and my wife intermingled easily with the neighbors, who were friendly and often made a fuss about the baby.
