Re: RARA-AVIS: Hardboiled Architecture?

Date: 19 May 2000

Downtown L.A. is filled with cool old Hardboiled buildings (the Bradbury is a must) and Hollywood Blvd. east of Highland is still as seedy as ever, despite a few spots of gentrification. I used to have an office at Hollywood and Vine in a building that looked like it was right out of THE BIG SLEEP. It's still there. Have lunch at Musso's and drinks at Boardner's across the street.

The Formosa is another must-see bar. It's next to Warner's Hollywood. The cops roust Johnny Stomp and Lana T. at the Formosa in L.A. CONFIDENTIAL.

And don't forget to check out Chinatown.....

The list could go on and on. Despite "progress" L.A. is still filled with great old buildings. Bring lots of film.
