APTOPIX Life On Skid Row Photo Essay

Pastor Emmanuel Okoli, standing next to a cross, gives a sermon to homeless people at Outreach Mission Center as a man, right, urinates in an alley in the Skid Row area of Los Angeles, Thursday, March 21, 2013. The area, originally agricultural until the 1870s when railroads first entered Los Angeles, has maintained a transient nature through the years from the influxes of short-term workers, migrants fleeing economic hardship during the Great Depression, military personnel during World War II and the Vietnam conflict, and low-skilled workers with limited transportation options who need to remain close to the city's core, according to the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce.
