Here’s what the new University Village across the street from campus and approved by the Los Angeles City Council earlier this week, is supposed to look like.

    Not a lot of diversity in that sketch. Do the intend to relocate the campus or something?

    • USC owns the Rose Bowl

      You’re right. What is this, Westwood? South Central prepared me for
      something called REAL LIFE. It’s not all sunny and beautiful, kid.

        That’s so 10 years ago. Haven’t you heard. The only place more dangerous then fucla campus is the medical center.

        • UCLA Medical Center: where white people smile while they kill you

  • Where are the Crips, Bloods, MS 13, illegals, graffiti, barbed wire and all the rest that LA has to offer? Will it smell like urine as well ?

    But will future USC students know nothing of the UV, with its fortress-like architecture that seemed designed to put down riots? Will they know nothing of the parking lot full of huge, clunky old used Cadillacs? I know the old “Three-Two” changed hands several years ago, but who will remember the crowded aisles, the guy always lugging a bin full of watermelons from one end of the store to the other, the mealy produce, the giant bug-zapper on the wall above the butcher counter, the 4’5″ elderly Guatemalan customers who looked like they could have been cast as extras in Mel Gibson’s “Apocalypto”, and the metal barriers that kept customers from stealing the shopping carts?

    Who will keep alive the memories of the countless bank robberies at the BofA? Or the spitball-dotted movie screens at the UV theater, where neighborhood parents brought their young children to violent R-rated movies, and then let those children gleefully romp in the center aisle the whole time? The very same theater that showed “Blankman” for at least half of my freshman year?

    Will we mourn the demise of one of the few Wendy’s locations in Los Angeles? Who will speak for the laundromat where I washed my clothes that one summer, when I couldn’t use the laundry room in my apartment building because a homeless guy had taken a crap in there, and no one would clean it up?

    Gone is the Tempo music store. Gone is the old Newberry’s with its sub-standard merchandise. And soon, the old UV itself will pass from this world into the next. Farewell, old dump. Farewell…

    • I remember drinking in the UV theater, watching Wanted, getting pretty upset because kids wouldn’t stop crying…..good times.

    Ha, it looks exactly like what they have across the street from Notre Dame, except they have 50 feet of snow.
