I take minor exception to the Wikipedia article regarding Park La Brea. To me, it has always seemed to be the only housing project of its kind that has NOT fallen into tenement status. Even at its supposed nadir in the 1970's-1980's, it was always physically well-kept, and the neighborhood has always been considered desirable.

I lived in the Miracle Mile district (still my favorite neighborhood in L.A.) from about 1991-1997, and from then until now, Park La Brea rents have always started just above my price range -- and these days, they peak in the mid-4-figure range. Moreover, neither I nor any Angeleno I know of has ever referred to Park La Brea as "the projects".

I would gladly correct the Wikipedia article, but of course I don't have specific references to support any of this.
