Destroyed Surfridge neighborhood further doomed

Los Angeles World Airports (LAWA), which runs LAX, just got the OK from the California Coastal Commission to remove the northern remnants of Surfridge. So go take those last pictures now!

From LAWA:

The Dunes Improvement Project includes the removal of selected abandoned streets, curbs, gutters, sidewalks, retaining walls, foundations, and above-ground utilities, in an approximately four-acre area. It also proposes the repair of curb and gutter along Vista Del Mar, and a reduction of non-native invasive plants and the planting of approximately six acres of native coastal dune and coastal prairie vegetation spread out within a 48-acre area that was formerly a residential subdivision, and is generally bordered by Waterview Street, Rindge Avenue and Napoleon Street on the north, Pershing Drive on the east, Sandpiper Street on the south and Vista Del Mar on the west.
