The Gentrification of Echo Park Student Documentary

Here’s a short student documentary about the gentrification of Echo Park, “with a focus on local businesses, real estate, racial tension, and class struggle.” They interview Echo Park residents, including Rickey Kim of Evil Monito in Echo Park.

Though I’m not sure when this video was made exactly (it was uploaded to YouTube recently), it does mention the Echo Park swap meet (at around 8:26), saying: “Every Sunday, Latino families and vendors from other parts of Los Angeles come to the park to sell used clothing, appliances, and other items as part of the Sunday Swap Meet… Due to residents’ complaints, strict ordinances have been placed on the vendors regarding what can be sold. Vendor numbers have diminished while tension persists.”

Just to clear things up, at this time there are currently no ordinances in place for the Sunday swap meets at the lake (let alone restrictions on what items can be sold), and the numbers have actually increased in the past year.

The above video is written and directed by Sinziana Velicescu with the help of Marvin Arias and Chelsea Zeffiro.

    ¡Estoy impresionado por la abundancia de formas en que podemos usar la naturaleza para nuestro beneficio! ¿Quién lo hubiera pensado? Una vez vi un documental en la televisión sobre las trufas. Estaban usando un perro para olerlas, como dijiste. Pero también explicaban algo sobre que había una “falsa”, o tal vez eran de un tipo diferente (no muy seguro) que no valía ni la mitad de dinero, así que eso es algo de lo que hay que cuidarse.

    Soy un gran fan de las velas aromáticas y las uso todo el tiempo. Pueden ser bastante caras, así que tu post sobre cómo ganar dinero vendiendo velas me llamó la atención inmediatamente después de verlo. No me di cuenta de que este era un nicho de mercado en el que se podía entrar, pero sin duda es uno atractivo para mí. El kit que describes no es caro y parece cubrir todas las bases que uno necesitaría para poner en marcha un negocio así. Me gustaría analizar los números de los costos de los bienes vendidos para ver cuáles podrían ser los márgenes de beneficio. Gracias por publicar esta oportunidad de hacer dinero y la revisión del sistema de “Candle Making 4 You”, estoy definitivamente interesado y probablemente lo compre. Tengo alrededor de un mes antes de que pueda empezar, así que comprar el producto ahora me daría tiempo para leer el material y ejecutar los números.
