Homelessness in the City of Angels

This data journalism project investigates the extent of homelessness at three of Los Angeles’ most iconic neighborhoods. We present a dichotomy between a fantasmic, imagined Los Angeles with the reality of homelessness in order to show the pervasive extent of housing insecurity across the beautiful City of Angels that is often romanticized in pop culture. To do this, we contrast georeferenced Airbnb rentals with 311 calls of homeless encampments in 2018 to produce this interactive web story.
