Yeah, it's far from posh.
It's kind of amazing how giant the impact of the Rams return is, and is going to be, on this city. Season ticket sales are through the roof. I think this is much more of a sports town than when the Rams left. Clippers, Lakers, Kings, and Dodger games are routinely packed, and I think have also gotten more expensive. I brought some relatives to a Dodgers game last year, and was pretty shocked at the prices.
And, the traffic is going to be brutal! Occasionally, I will have to drive over the 405 pass, and have noted how one school bus, slowing down the flow of traffic, can back traffic up for literally miles. A hundred semis carrying material in and out each day for two years is going to be unbelievable.
Yeah, I can imagine what that will be like.
I have friends that live in Inglewood and they are very close to where the new stadium will be.
I'm guessing that the area will get a facelift and become far more attractive and less seedy, since the NFL wants to have this grand spectacle in that area. Sort of like what the city of Anaheim did with Disneyland, when it became the resort it is now.
