"It's electric !!!"
Electric is the street directly north of Abbot Kinney. A good deal of the parking lots for Abbot Kinney shops and cafes are located right off Electric, and it's a good place to find street parking, too. It’s also the fastest way to get to Abbot Kinney if you’re driving west on Venice Blvd, although the first two blocks leaving Venice Blvd. are one-way, and then after that it turns into a two-way street. The houses are rather pleasant and in the style of the surrounding neighborhood, are usually small but very carefully and uniquely decorated on the outside. A lot of artist/celebrities/weirdos live there. It’s not a good street, however, if you want houses on both sides of the street because although houses line most of the north side, the south side is taken up by either warehouses or parking lots. It does, however, feel very safe most of the time.
