My wife had her office on 12th & Pico for more than 20 years. The times when you didn't want to get caught in downtown after dark are long gone.I need to go "downtown" more. I rarely do when I'm out there. Everyone tells me that Central LA has been going through something of a renaissance of late despite the reports it has become a "tent city." Now that you mention it, I think Los Feliz also has some of the old lights still installed once you get north of Franklin.
I am aware a lot of the downtown buildings are either being restored or re-purposed into "East Coast-ish" loft apartments. Also, that's where a lot of LA's "night life" has been relocated to. Clubs, restaurants etc. :thumbsup:
I've made a pass and cleaned up some of the dribble about each other and collateral posts about those posts. I probably did it wrong since there's so much of it. Dave's posts about the late 40's vehicles in the video should have been the end of that, but "letting it go" seems to be hard.I am always amazed of the 'talent' of some to contort and screw up threads.
Thankfully, most of us appear to have outgrown those juvenile urges with adulthood.
The forum has enough otherwise good threads that became permanently locked down for that very reason.
Hi Ed, we probably did the same thing simultaneously. Except I prefer to make the superfluous posts disappear from the thread with a move to garbage :grinI've made a pass and cleaned up some of the dribble about each other and collateral posts about those posts.

A blown engine would've sliced him up like a Cuisinart.....but DAMN! That looks like fun! :thumbsup:...............
I used to frequently travel on the 110 N from San Pedro through downtown in heavy rush hour traffic. Least painful was to cross under the 10 bridge and merge on the right into the 10 exit traffic and into the downtown exits 2 lanes, take the 3rd St exit and bridge, traffic goes only one way to the other side of the 110, cross to the the far right lane, and go the first right = N (parallel to 110) S Beaudry Ave. turn left on first cross street W 2nd St which turns into Glendale Blvd, pass the tennis courts and under the 101 bridge,
What a Fantastic time to be alive.
