RV Alley
RV Alley | Place | The strip of Malkin Avenue adjacent to Strathcona Park popular with people living out of camper vans, converted buses, and RVs.

It’s a different visual representation of Vancouver’s deepening housing crisis than, say, a homeless encampment, but it’s equal proof of how hard it is to live in our “most liveable city”.

Usage: “I sometimes think I’ll see Chris Farley’s motivational speaker character Matt Foley emerge from one of the vans parked on RV Alley…”
