It’s been nearly a year since the LAPD and other law enforcement agencies launched a massive raid on the Avenues Gang stronghold in Glassell Park. To honor the occasion, and show off the difference in the neighborhood, officials are throwing a Drew Street Block Party next weekend, according to Northeast Division Capt. Bill Murphy in his Northeast Newsletter. “This area has improved dramatically and we are going to celebrate with live music, free food, entertainment, and other kids activities,” Murphy said.
