NO COFFEE, NO BEANS / SLAB CITY AIN’T MUCH
The name is intriguing: Slab City Internet Café but unless you bring it with you there’s no internet, no coffee, no sanitation, no trash pick up, no electricity or running water. And, the local economy is built on excuses as to why they live there.
Slab City, also called The Slabs, is largely a snowbird community in the Sonoran Desert located in Imperial County, California, 156 miles northeast of San Diego within the California Badlands, and used by recreational vehicle owners and squatters from across North America.
Frankly, it’s also a human junkyard and most of the locals like it that way.
