a native's eye on
Sunland Tujunga and North Hollywood
GRAND OPENING WEEK:
what this is
is all about
-NORTH HOLLYWOOD EDUCATION
No Weatherby Kaiser
but YES, new MIDDLE SCHOOL
also in Noho
new ELEMENTARY minus LAPD
and new HIGH SCHOOL with pool . . .
I went to school in North Hollywood.
Elementary School was VICTORY BLVD
Those long not days on that asphalt playground.
I even saw the U-2 SPy Planes fly over, they
being manufactured at Lockheed in Burbank.
WALTER REED was my junior high, we call it
Middle School now, when I was there
we called it prison. The older kids joked about
the 'pool on the auditorium". The boys VP got
us all together in the auditorium in 9th grade
and said 'Never Come Back Here!".
High School was NORTH HOLLYWOOD HUSKIES.
At the football games the cheer was "Push Em Back,
Push Em Back, PUSH EM BACK TO THE
RAILROAD TRACK", that being Chandler Blvd
Railroad Corridor ( read yesterday's post).
-NEW NOHO ELEMENTARY
The newest school additions in North Hollywood
are here now or just about here. In my teazer I say
an elementary minus LAPD. This new Elementary is on
part of the site of the previous North Hollywood LAPD
Division being on TIARA ST. off of Lankershim.
It was used is some old TV series. All gone now and part
of a new modern elementary on the TUJUNGA AVE side
of Tiara, the play field is near IN N OUT BURGER.
the pic on the right shows the final demolition
of the former Tiara site of LAPD Station.
-NEW NOHO MIDDLE SCHOOL
When I wrote about Weatherby Kaiser, Woolworth and Sees
that was the shoe store, 5&Dime and candy stores lining
a strip mall next to Sears near Victory & Laurel Canyon.
All gone, and a new Middle School is being built and will
go back to Victory Vanowen Park behind it.
-NEW NOHO HIGH SCHOOL
In jr hi the joke for the SCRUBS was the pool. The new
High School on VINELAND AVE just south of Burbank Blvd
is going to have a pool! Large multi-story buildings have
just gone up and are in completion for this new campus
which is right down the street from the Chandler Blvd Art Walk
I will show many more pics
of the building of these
newest additions to the
Los Angeles Unified School District
for tommorrow in St. Noho.
Mr Romer School Super has helped the District build 50 plus
schools, such as these here in Noho, and we have this Mayor Thing
about takeover... In the 1880's in Los Angeles the languages were
Spanish and English... the Mayor helped get money FOR SCHOOLS,
not rule over them. (HINT) Read Your History.

- WEDDINGTON WOES ?
OLDIES, even more oldie than myself,

- STREAKING ST ON A HARLEY
Sunland Tujunga is not just a moviemaking town minutes from
Hollywood, but 'used to still is' a motorcycle maven's dream.
-"...more like thes"
Sunland Tujunga & North Hollywood
are the City of Los Angeles,
California in the U.S.A.
We also live in the County of Los Angeles
this is the evil maybe x-logo that has that
G-d reference, and other stuff of the devils.
The County has used for it decades, WHO KNEW?
We can always make fun of ourselves
as with the fake-logo for Kalifoana.
With this neighborhood blog about
these cities with unique
historys and lifestyles,
we will shed some humor
and truths concerning our
Los Angeles Megalopolis.
