I swear, facebook has created a generation of imbeciles. The scary thing is that it’s a combination of all generations acting a-fool online. The baby boomer who calls you to ask for tech support instead of just typing the same question into Google now uses facebook on the regular. The GenX who grew up with the internet and now has his/her own personal soapbox and the millennial that has grown up with a a sense of entitlement and fairness because everyone deserves a trophy.
So now you have a bunch of locals beginning their armchair social activism campaign about a 90 year old home that got torn down. Boo Hoo.
It must have been a slow news day in El Segundo because the comments section lit up when someone complained that 503 Concord St El Segundo CA 90245 was town down. This was my description of the $1.4 million 1400 sqft home when I wrote about it a few months ago.
Vintage spanish home. Needs new baths, kitchen and more than likely needs updating to plumbing and electric. If you love that nostalgic feeling of visiting the house your mom grew up in, this is for you. It’s like visiting Granny’s house. The hardware, walls, appliances and condition of the home will remind you each time you write that $6,000 check that you are paying to live in what would have been the coolest digs in 1974.
There was talk of starting a historical society to preserve the look of our town. “Such a shame, we can’t let El Segundo change!” Translation:
Not In My Backyard
What the hell? People with no financial means to purchase nor take on a project like 503 California talking political action to “protect” El Segundo. The home was a PIECE OF SHIT. Not only that, it was an expensive POS and to add insult to injury because of it’s design and lot size it would have been near impossible to improve or enlarge it economically.
I understand everyone’s concern that El Segundo shouldn’t become Manhattan, nor have McMansions door to door like Westchester, but the armchair vigilantes are killing society.
Funny how these images weren’t shared on ESPN: EVERY bath needs updating, it has no master bath, needs a new kitchen…I can only imagine the electric, plumbing, HVAC and roof needed updating….This $1.4 mil fixer was going to require $250K just to get it up to the level one would hope for a $1.4 million home. And now the lynch mob wants to handcuff potential buyers with regulations and rules on how to preserve one 90 year old spanish home? Should we protect the other 90 year old POS homes in El Segundo? What about all the quaint 1000 sqft 1940s homes?
Here’s your precious Concord.
