Tuesday, June 29, 2010 Family Values

David Green sculpture, The Family, Sunset Boulevard and Havenhurst Drive, West Hollywood

Families are odd, and it's an odd story when Bette Davis first moved to Hollywood, she and her mother lived in a crappy West Hollywood apartment, but they could see the fancy Colonial House on Havenhurst Drive from their window, and when Bette Davis made it big in the movies, and had a ton of money, she moved there, to prove something or other to her skeptical mother. Families are complicated. Colonial House is just down the street, and the Bette Davis apartment, restored to perfection, is now for sale at 1416 Havenhurst Drive if you too have something to prove to your mother. But be warned. The place is just a few feet down the hill from the Sunset Strip, and the Strip isn't exactly family friendly. At the corner of Sunset Boulevard and Havenhurst Drive there's that David Green sculpture, The Family, and they don't look very happy

And this billboard is directly across the street from Green's family

And speaking of family values, the Body Shop is a few steps away

The same sort of thing at Sunset and Havenhurst

But it's not THAT bad a neighborhood
