Today while my car was being serviced, I walked around this funny little part of Hollywood. This peculiar area is hidden and broken up by boulevards, some sound stages, and many ugly apartment buildings, although it is a little seedy, it has a steadfast charm. So much of the flats of Hollywood look like this, struggling to hang on, while over priced condos fly up into the sky. Although these modest buildings try in vain, to hide away behind walls and hedges the new Hollywood is coming. Yes, they are funky and seedy but can't we give them credit for their endurance. The sad truth is, in the not to long future this charm will be gone.
