Once one of LA's ritziest neighborhoods, West Adams boasts big houses, but they're not always in good repair. Jennifer Sharpe has a story about a couple of real estate professionals committed to revitalizing the neighborhood, and how they've joined forces with a group of young people who've formed an "intentional community." Together, they seem to be succeeding in reclaiming an area that was falling into blight.
