Thursday, October 18, 2007 Just One Corner

The one corner is in the flats below the center of Hollywood, down on the scruffy, industrial east end of Santa Monica Boulevard used car lots and strip malls, and the back end of this major studio or that, and Hollywood's "Theater Row." The corner of Hudson and Santa Monica Boulevard is a visual treat, starting on the northeast corner with the white horse at the art gallery.

Next door to the gallery, Jim Morrison lives! At least he lives again at the art/works Theatre.

Did you ever wonder why Hollywood liberals all seem to think alike?  The answer is just across the street.

This is Theater Row, so you get banners.

The bar on the block is named Firefly.

Looming above the corner, Television Center

    Television Center offers over 163,000 square feet of build-to-suit, creative and traditional workspaces, set in the 1920's Art Deco splendor of the original Technicolor building, in the heart of Hollywood. With spaces to support virtually any commercial or creative venture, we've become the business home for clients ranging from creative production and technical services companies, to artists, photographers, film labs, casting agents and production companies - the heartbeat of the Hollywood civic and business resurgence.

The history of the place is here

The best parts are from 1924.
