From Olvera Street to Grand Avenue

Hosted by

Olvera Street in downtown LA is part of El Pueblo de Los Angeles historical monument, designed to preserve the city’s earliest lifestyle and culture. But 40 Olvera Street merchants are refusing to pay their full rent, and that could lead to evictions. The controversy involves a total of $72,000. Another matter of municipal public policy involves a dollar a year, what billionaire philanthropist and art collector Eli Broad might be paying for 82,000 square feet of city property across the street from Disney Hall.
