Neighborhood Skeez Rate Drops in First Month of 2007

One of Those Skeezy LA Buildings Gets a Paint Job
Statistics at the end of January show a major decline in skeez in the northeast Los Angeles neighborhood of Atwater Village.

A prominent landmark at Glendale Boulevard and Glenhurst Avenue - given worldwide notoriety last May when the Washington Post profiled it as "dilapidated," "drab" and "skeezy" - has completed a renovation. The formerly drab exterior is now a rich chocolate brown, with red-orange accents.

Invitations to revisit the infamous structure - and perhaps attend the grand opening of the adjacent Starbucks - are forthcoming to Post reporter J. Freedom du Lac.
