Veronica Arellano (center) is one of 16 people asking a judge to allow them to intervene to challenge the city of Los Angeles on a gang injunction approved for the Echo Park and Silver Lake neighborhoods.

As mentioned, some times neighborhoods in LA change - a lot.

Take for instance, Echo Park. Recently, gang members who once lived there have been priced out of the neighborhood, but they still show up in Echo Park to hang out.
