WE NEED SUM SPLAININ'
STOP THE PRESSES, AGAIN!
I WAS RIGHT ALL THE WAY...
there was a chair & eagle
on top of the sphere...
(see WHOLE STORY below)
I WAS RIGHT
I WAS WRONG
then I AM CORRECT-
I said 'something' was
on top of the Noho
Welcome Art ...TRUE
I said an Eagle ...WRONG
no I was correct-
It was a CHAIR
standing on one leg
WITH AN EAGLE ON TOP !
GOOD OLD LUCY RICARDO,
aka Lucille Ball resides at
Magnolia & Lankershim home of the
Academy of Television Arts & Sciences.
the Emmy stands tall by the
rising eucalyptus trees
personifying the Arts District
As with the story below we have some other
monuments of note in Noho besides all our
acting favorites at the Emmy Circle...
Amelia the fated pilot is a historical note.
Then we have the SPHERE
seen here Welcoming All to Noho,
but click to enlarge and you see on
top the green of old brass
-AND I DO NOW REALLY REMEMBER
a 'chair standing on one leg'
ON TOP OF THE SPHERE,
I may be crazzzzi,
but I think it looked
like this a chair with an EAGLE
on top of the sphere
What happened to the
CHAIR ? & EAGLE?
Graffiti laden murals
get repaint jobs,
if this was VANDALISM,
is it going to be repaired.
MY HOMEWORK -call WENDY
or other Noho people...
"What Happened to the Chair?"
SATURDAY & SUNDAY...
Office & Regina of the
that the monument
and it is in the process
of being RESTORED
! yeah ! yeah !
What is being built
on tht NE corner of
Lankertshim & Oxnard ?
Why has The City of L.A.
NOT COME THROUGH
as this dirt lot stands next
to the new LAUSD school...
At Burbank and Lankershim and Tujunga,
which are all streets in North Hollywood,
there is the Noho Welcome monument,
and there is is, say no more...
I remember A CHAIR AND AN EAGLE
on top of the sphere?
SEE STORY ABOVE..
the L.A. Library Branch where Tujunga
and Magnolia meet, there is a statue of
North Hollywood's famous native, the
flyer of fate, Amelia Earhart the pilot
doomed to history. Go to the library
OK HERE'S A HINT
LET US DO
and Coca Cola
... IN NOHO !
When I grew up an older friend
up up and away...
I PERSONALLY KNOW
OF ONE AIRPORT IN
and I grew up hearing
of another, both near
at different times.
David Kennedy, said his Dad had
flown his airplanes landing in the
WASH that is now the 170 where
his house was approximately in
the area of Laurel Cyn and Burbank NE near the WASH.
Movie Theater former
My Mom would always take us to shop. One area was
VALLEY PLAZA, or as she would jokingly call it,
"Valley Pleasure" the part SW of Sears by the Theater
which was an ALEXANDER'S MARKET.
Oh, the COKE MACHINE in this market on those hot
Valley days would dispense a bottle of COKE, 8oz,
that was so cold the first drinks were COKE SLUSH.
Victory Van Owen park
In Valley Plaza
The large parking lot is the same today leading to that
part of Victory Van Owen Park which WAS/IS on both
sides of the WASH/170FWY. The WASH was great
all that sand, and on the other side there was a slanting
concrete wall that we would get a piece of corrugated box
throw some sand and sliiiide!
Basically Victory Blvd
and Laurel Cyn
In 1957 (I looked it up on the web) L.A. Airways
paved a landing circle and road from Victory Blvd
to have a helicopter mail stop, which a man in a
station wagon would come and pick up US Mail.
My best friend Richard and I once took a passenger
trip on the noisy Korean Era helicopter leaving
VALLEY PLAZA going to Van Nuys, LAX,
Down Town L.A. and Burbank Airport
(BOB HOPE AIRPORT
originally LOCKHEED AIRCRAFT)
a very noisy but exciting flight.
SO, there you are
2 (TWO) airports in NOHO,
