WeHo depresses me

I had only modest expectations for it, but the city has disappointed even those.\ \ The gay area is pretty small compared to Chicago''s. It, and the entire city, have a very sterile feel. It''s beautifully manicured but feels lifeless. \ \ The shops that made it cool and gave it character are disappearing. Soolip is gone, and so is the sweet cafe across from it. Not only did Elixir have to close, but they had to knock down the gorgeous building that housed it. Now Bodhi Tree is closing. Unless you''re a chain store, a depressingly expensive niche boutique, or a fad business destined for eventual abandonment (Millions of Milkshakes will soon go the way of Pinkberry), you won''t make it.\ \ [...] is OK under its new management, and there are some good restaurants, but I do not get a feeling of community in WeHo. It just feels like an extension of Beverly Hills with some gay bars, or any generic, affluent LA city. What am I missing?
