Heard That Brother Jim!
Many a nights I went down to the beach and never had any encounters except with a seal! You should be able to go to the beach at night if you want.
Locals roll when and where we want at all times...that's how I was raised,,,
,,,I've been bare foot in diapers in 90291...me, my family, our kids, all "the boyz"
No nightly closure of Venice Beach!
Join the Venice Pier to Santa Monica Pier bike ride Monday evenings at The Terrace(Washington Bl & Ocean Front Walk) to protest the illegal midnight closure.
What kind society do we live in now that I cannot even walk around my neighborhood after a certain hour? I live two block away from the beach. That means if I want go for a walk after a certain hour I am forced to walk east. What about those people that live on Ocean Front Walk? They cannot walk out of their homes cuz' they would get a ticket or be arrested for "accessing" the beach.
Might have to do with the forth coming debris flow from Japan. The powers that be are NOT ALL that sure exactly how they are going to process all that DEBRIS off the beaches, bays, marina's, and harbors. Health Hazard, may be their biggest priority. Otherwise, totaly agree, BEACH should be FREE for access any time. We pay enough taxes already.
Venice is Freedom. Beaches should always be open.
It's war against the homeless , gentrification of Venice. More money More Money More Money that's all LA wants.
