Venice Update

News of Venice, CA and Marina del Rey CA

3rd and Rose Is “The Place”

“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

    That HuffPo article is almost 10 years old. Would be curious for an 2017 update.

    Would also be curious as to the top ten cities that are “meanest” to homeowners with regard to allowing homelessness to run rampant (or even be promoted) in their neighborhoods.

    I’m quite sure L.A. would make the grade, especially the west side.
