Friday, October 3, 2008 At the Junction (Sunset Junction)

Sunset Junction isn't really Hollywood it's the far beyond trendy area a few miles east of Hollywood on Sunset Boulevard, a subset of Silverlake, before you get to Echo Park. Hollywood is for tourists, Melrose Avenue for those who hope to be hip or whatever the word is these days.  Sunset Junction seems to be for those who don't need to try it seems to be years ahead of the rest of the culture. Christopher Isherwood, Alan Ginsburg and William Burroughs are no longer doing readings at the local bookstore, A Different Light, and a young and hungry Jackson Browne no longer lives in the ratty apartment building down the way, hoping to make it big.  But the place still has the feel of change and possibility.

Sometime you stop by just to get a sense of that.  This is Sunset at Hyperion.
