“Third and Rose in Venice is the best place to be if you are homeless” according to Google search, claimed one homeless person on 3rd and Rose.
This was statement a homeless couple from Miami gave to LAPD Chaplain Regina Weller of the Homeless Task Force. Regina asked the couple what motivated them to come to California. One said he had Googled “Where’s the best place for homeless people?” Google pointed them to 3rd and Rose in Venice.
This writer immediately checked Google with the same question and found one source that mentioned Venice but not on 3rd and Rose. http://uncyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/HowTo:Be_Homeless_in_Ameria The same search also had where not to be homeless with the 10 worst places and LA was No.1. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/07/14/the-10-worst-places-to-be_n_231476.html Google lists blogs and perhaps one of the blogs mentioned 3rd and Rose.
The article about this couple from Miami and their new, little cottage Chaplain Regina found them in Long Beach is in World Magazine https://world.wng.org/2017/03/homeless_on_the_streets_of_la
