Trianon Apartments

Driving around East Hollywood with no idea where to go for another picture, I decided that when the current Bob Dylan song was over, I would pull over and just start walking. After twenty uneventful minutes, I found The Trianon Apartments. There's certainly nothing else in the vicinity that suggests this was once prime Hollywood real estate or that it holds yet another tucked away example of the chateau style of architecture that was so common in Los Angeles in the late Twenties and early Thirties.

Highlight of the weekend: Walked (walked) to the Rothko show at the branch? annex? of the Los Angeles County Art Museum at the Pacific Design Center.

Exact Center of L.A.?

I was out hiking yesterday in Franklin Canyon (trying to find some less grim photos for the J-Weed) when I came across the above plaque embedded in a small slab of cement. I hope its legible but it seems to say that it marks the exact center of Los Angeles, complete with longitude and latitude. If this is true, the quaint wooden bridge is about fifty feet from the center of the city of Los Angeles. I have no idea of this true but it certainly helps me to think of "LA" a little differently.
