The once beloved Silverlake is hideous now. Gone are any other race than Anglo white and straight. This fantastic and once humble neighborhood with low rent was created by gays and Latinos where they flourished in harmony for over 50 years. They learned to get along well and I was so happy to be here. It was laid back and everyo0ne was friendly. When the recession hit, yuppy parents brought massive CASH to owners who threw out all renters of both businesses and apartments, with the promise their ugly hipster offspring would pay more. They gutted everything, even historical landmarks. These bearded vegan idiots invaded with a vengeance and it completely lost it's charm. Rents are sky high, food is sky high, Anglo babies are everywhere, it's very sad. They have done this to Brooklyn, Portland, San Francisco and other places. No one seems to be taking it seriously.
