Books about Venice

Is it gentrification, or is it an invasion, or both?

SnapDemp

Demonstration Against Snap Chat leasing out Ocean Front Walk, Market Street and other sites, including formerly affordable housing.

Retail and housing together in the same block has received a stamp of approval from urban planners. But no one mention housing and factories, even hi-tech factories, as being a good mix.

The novices running Snap Chat don't care about their negative impact on Venice. Today's new robber barons only care about their stock prices and their growing bank accounts.

Walking down Market Strret, where the demonstrations are usually held, one has the same feeling as in an industrial park, devoid of people, except "security" guards ready to harass homeless people at a moment's notice. There is an oppressive silence save for the traffic on Pacific. But who ever said gentrification had to be noisy?

Who can have confidence that their stock is a good investment when the corporate bozos can't even get along with their neighbors?
