There’s been a rise in gang-related incidents across Venice and it was only a matter of time before the empty building, with the fresh lick of white paint on Ocean Front Walk at 18th Ave, was going to cop a tagging.
Boardwalk regular Kevin says the new owners of the building are the business minds behind the Jordache Jeans empire.
The building has remained shuttered for the past few months and late last week it was treated to a bright, white coat of paint.
“I told my friend Seven on Thursday, look at that they made a canvas. They painted it all white. I bet Seven that by Monday morning some MoFo would have tagged that,” says Kevin.
What’s most interesting is that the fresh paint job lasted as long as it did.
