Virgil Village is a largely Central American community near East Hollywood that’s being remade by gentrification. LA Times columnist Frank Shyong recently spoke to a handful of residents along Virgil Avenue to find out how the neighborhood’s changing—and how people can have vastly different experiences of the same city. His article is titled, “On Virgil Avenue, avocado toast and four different versions of the same city.”
