5th Avenue Crips from 1983 footage in LA

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

5th Avenue Crips from 1983 footage in LA

I was watching this video about gangs in Los Angeles from February 1983, and they showed various graffiti but this one caught my eye, "5th Avenues Crips' since I had never heard of their existence.

very sharp, thanks for that, makes sense, that style of writing matches up with some other Venice Shore Line graffiti i seen from same year, and 5th Avenue goes from Rose to Electric right in the Oakwood section of Venice.
