The Changing Face and Personality of Downtown Los Angeles

Hosted by

New businesses and new residents are crowding into parts of downtown LA, a neighborhood that is reinventing itself. We hear about one archetypical example: the King Eddy Saloon close to the heart of Skid Row. It's an establishment "sealed in amber" back in the 1960's, now adapting to its changing surroundings. What's happening to the homeless and the formerly homeless, now living in low-cost housing? Is gentrification shrinking Skid Row? On our rebroadcast of today's To the Point, Todd Akin, abortion and the presidential campaign.
