The Best It’s Ever Been

Pico-Robertson is the best it’s ever been.

Until recently, no decent person would consider living East of Robertson. It was regarded as a trashy place, way too close to blacks and gangs and social dysfunction.

Now the area has nice new apartment buildings and condos.

Until 1980, Hamilton High School on Robertson Blvd was about 60% Jewish. Now it is about 90% black.
