Noticing some bike tires going by outside my Alta loft in the Lincoln Heights neighborhood by Downtown Los Angeles, I could hear no ruckus, so I peaked out to see if they were a law-abiding bunch or another unruly gang usurping the streets and blocking cars without the aid of law enforcement. #worldnakedbikeride #altalofts #wnbr
Fortunately, this was the former, a legal horde of political protesting group showing that they care about the world by showing everything. Some might find not quite legal, but it looks pretty legit to me, particularly being being for political speech, with signs speaking against plutocracy, apparently disparaging President Trump.
Here’s the uncensored video with full nudity – viewer discretion is advised:
The World Naked Bike Ride, or WNBR, is an international clothing-optional bike ride in which participants plan, meet and ride together in large groups on human-powered transport. Most ride bicycles with no clothes on to “deliver a vision of a cleaner, safer, body-positive world.”
Downtown L.A. 30 years ago was the set for many a nude photography session in the all-but-abandoned Arts district of the 1980’s and 1990’s. Today, nudity in public has become very rare in DTLA as many different people with different sensibilities pack into the once blighted area.
Downtown remains a forum for political discourse and every kind of gathering, including many on foot and on bike. Sharing in the Downtown rennaisance, Lincoln Heights is, in a way, the new Arts District because it is an up-and-coming creative LA neighborhood with a industrial heritage like Downtown’s Arts District was 20 years ago. | About the Author

Most of them are finished lofts and ready to move in, while some may require less touch-up than the average fixer or raw loft.

It’s the #1 best kept secret in Downtown Los Angeles. While more buyers than ever are feeling empowered with all of the real estate and property information on the internet, most are unaware of just how many properties they are not seeing. Out of sight, out of mind.
Up to 45% of the best deals in Downtown L.A. are pocket listings, off-market, exclusive deals, unlisted lofts, unadvertised condos and private transactions. Many prospective buyers make the mistake of sifting through hundreds of online listings that may or may not match the buyer’s criteria, and the buyer risks missing out on just the right home.
There are many reasons why so many properties are unlisted, often the listing agent simply notifies their office and other friendly local agents about new listings while the listing is being processed and prepared for the multiple listing service.
Technical glitches, spelling errors, listing omissions and other unanticipated events cause properties to be unlisted or otherwise not found on the MLS and not found on the internet. One common example is glitches and imperfections in the MLS-IDX feed to websites, and mistakes that agents and website owners make when attempting to link to local properties. This is why the L.A. Loft Blog has been adding alternative ways of finding homes for sale in addition to the regular FOR SALE links.
Many pocket listings are the result of sellers not being quite ready to invite the entire world into their home. Many properties for sale have renter tenants who are not always cooperative. Sometimes, the landlord does not want the tenant to know that the home is on the market because the landlord does not want to anger or possible lose the tenant too early.
Often the seller simply wants a more discrete transaction, the seller wants to be able to pick and choose the buyer, or the seller simply does not want the home to have an appearance of undesirable by being on listed on the MLS too long. A Downtown home that is listed on the MLS for more than 60 days might be tarnished, thought of as a potential problem.
To add to the problem, several MLS Multiple Listing Services, including our own popular local Combined Los Angeles Area Westside MLS, place a 3-day delay on feeds to the online real estate websites such as Trulia, Zillow and other real estate sites. This adds up to about 5 days delay before the average prospective home buyer sees the best deals online. Even without the artificial delay, the internet takes time for property information and its metadata to propagate to all of the websites.
There are countless other reasons why many of the best loft deals in Downtown Los Angeles are not found by many buyers, agents and brokers. TheMLS and other real estate professionals agree that buyers often get a better deal and a faster transaction with a pocket listing. Get free unlisted lofts and pocket listing information.
