  1. Just waiting for the entire structure to be torn down for a new high rise apartment bldg or decent grocery store!

    There’s still a hot sheets motel present next to the gas station at Oakwood + Vermont Aves.

    Walking to the train in the AM, is not fun at all; so much that I prefer taking the 206 bus to the Purple line at Wilshire vs dealing w the scene at Beverly + Vermont Metro station.
