Homeless in Venice
On any given night, 58,000 homeless people sleep on the streets of L.A. County. Venice long has been a magnet for transients and affluent homeowners alike, the two groups generally coexisting in a community known for embracing people on society's fringes. But now -- with gang crime on the wane, new business ventures bringing in jobs and property values on the rise -- gentrification is going strong but homelessness is also on the rise, leading to increased tensions.
