Korean Philadelphia Presbyterian Church, designed by S. Tilden Norton as Temple Sinai East for the first services in 1925 - southwest corner of Forth and New Hampshire, Koreatown, Los Angeles

Ah, this is the Korean Philadelphia Presbyterian Church, designed by S. Tilden Norton as Temple Sinai East for the first services of the Sinai Congregation in 1925 and it's LA Historic-Cultural Monument Number 91, at the corner of Forth and New Hampshire. Obviously, of the Sinai Congregation, the first Conservative congregation west of Chicago (they broke away from the Orthodox Beth Israel congregation in 1906) has moved on over to Westwood at Wilshire and Beverly Glen, back in 1960. But you don't let a good S. Tilden Norton Mediterranean-style masterpiece go to waste.

This Los Angeles neighborhood turned Korean over the years. So here you have this the Korean Philadelphia Presbyterians in an old Jewish Temple on New Hampshire, in Los Angeles. These things happen.

Also from 1925, the Park Lane apartments across the street, as this corner of Koreatown seems stuck in 1925
