Hollywood Sign, Los Angeles, California
The Hollywood Sign is a famous landmark in the Hollywood Hills area of Mount Lee, Santa Monica Mountains, in Los Angeles, California. The iconic sign spells out the name of the area in 45-foot-tall (14 m) and 350-foot-long (110 m) white letters. It was created as an advertisement in 1923, but garnered increasing recognition after the sign was left up. The sign was a frequent target of pranks and vandalism but has since undergone restoration, including a security system to deter vandalism. The sign is protected and promoted by the Hollywood Sign Trust, a nonprofit organization whose purpose is to physically maintain, repair and secure the sign, to educate the world about its historical and cultural importance, and to raise the funds necessary to accomplish these projects.
From the ground, the contours of the hills give the sign its well-known "wavy" appearance. When observed at a comparable altitude, as in the photo to the right, the letters appear level.
The sign makes frequent appearances in popular culture, particularly in establishing shots for films and television programs set in or around Hollywood.
The sign was first erected in 1923 and originally read "HOLLYWOODLAND". Its purpose was to advertise the name of a new housing development in the hills above the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. H.J. Whitley had already used a sign to advertise his development Whitley Heights, which was located between Highland Avenue and Vine Avenue. He suggested to his friend Harry Chandler, the owner of the Los Angeles Times newspaper, that the land syndicate in which he was involved make a similar sign to advertise their land. Real estate developers Woodruff and Shoults called their development "Hollywoodland" and advertised it as a "superb environment without excessive cost on the Hollywood side of the hills".
They contracted the Crescent Sign Company to erect thirteen letters on the hillside, each facing south. Each letter of the sign was 30 feet (9.1 m) wide and 50 feet (15 m) high, and was studded with some 4,000 light bulbs. The sign was officially dedicated on July 13, 1923. It was not intended to be permanent. Restoration company Bay Cal Painting says on its website that the expected life was to be about a year and a half, but after the rise of the American cinema in Los Angeles it became an internationally recognized symbol, and was left there.
Ukuleles and Space Shoes at 310 West 10th Street, New York
"Yeah we’re still sitting here,
Waiting for the day the Murray Space Shoe craft
Will come and take us away." Murray Space Shoe by Sonic Uke.
Alan E. Murray, a professional ice skater, invented his Space Shoes in 1939. They were so comfortable that Danny Kaye ruined his reputation as a dandy by wearing them. As well as producing shoes, Murray was an author, writing "The truth about Original Sin & Shoemaking" which no longer seems to be in print, but is advertised on some foot-health websites. After Murray’s death, the business moved away from West 10th street, to California. The Space Shoe Stoop is now the scene of uke-i-nannies, night-time jam sessions in which the ukulele community from New York and beyond, gather to pay tribute to the easily carried instrument. Sonic Uke, who live in the building, also organize the NY Uke Fest.
And as occupant10014 points out below, this location was also the site of hootenannies invoving Pete Seeger, Woody Gutherie, et al, . Amazing.
I’ve mapped this, and other New York oddities and points of interest.
Brewery Stop: BridgePort
Annie with our BridgePort ale taster tray and the "Mussels and Fries." The beer was somewhere between OK and good. The mussels were FANTASTIC.
What really sucked was that they advertise on their website "Brewery Tours" every weekday at 2 and 5 PM. We got there early, drank some beer, ate some food, and waited… and waited… and waited. Well, the tour never happened, and worse, no one from management came to explain anything to us. It was especially disappointing because there were lots of other things we could have been doing in Portland. What a beautiful city!
