Visit haunted hotels, meet unusual people, dine amongst the spirits, hear old campfire tales and peruse old historic landmarks. Although it's now on its (at least) fourth restaurant, 5370 Wilshire Boulevard started off life in the 1930s as a photography store called The Darkroom! Since the 1980s there has been a string of four restaurants at the location starting with the Indian restaurant, Sher-e Punjab.
As of 1989 the front facade of the building became a Los Angeles Cultural Historical Monument, which is part of the reason why the series of restaurants endured having a giant camera on their place. At 4,210 acres, Griffith Park in Los Angeles is not only the second largest park in California but also one of the nation's largest parks.
With ghosts appearing and ostriches stampeding, Griffith eventually foreclosed on the ostrich farm which was failing, causing Burkett to vow vengeance. To get away from the cursed land and the ghost, Griffith donated 3,015 acres to the city of Los Angeles in December 1896. If you believe writer and newspaperman Horace Bell, Don Antonio Feliz again appeared in 1898.
However, even though the curse doesn't appear to be inflicting pain upon anyone any more, several ghosts have been sighted throughout the park. One location that Dona Petranilla is said to haunt is the Crystal Springs Ranger Headquarters also called the Paco Feliz Adobe. As if the ghosts, curses, and other general weirdness wasn't enough, urban legend also claims that there's some sort of creature lurking in the park and stalking its visitors. Lastly, the park has also been used as locations in several movies including Back to the Future, Back to the Future II, The Rocketeer, and Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Back in November 1966, thousands of animals were relocated a few miles north from the Griffith Park Zoo to the new Los Angeles Zoo that still remains open to this day. The Griffith Park Zoo was originally opened in 1912, amusingly built on the former location of Griffith J.
In the mid 1920s, with the failure of the Selig Zoo, William Nicholas Selig donated several of his animals to the Griffith Park Zoo. By May 1958, people had had enough of the Griffith Park Zoo and its condition, leading voters to vote for the establishment of a brand new zoo. Over the storied history of the Griffith Park Zoo, there were a few famous or more appropriately infamous animals kept there.
The "San Diego Zoo" that appears in the movie Anchorman had several of its scenes filmed here. This video shows me driving from West Observatory towards East Observatory, basically leaving Toontown. But it is most recognized as the entrance and exit to the Batcave from the 1960s Adam West Batman TV series and later movie, usually shown with the Batmobile rocketing out of the cave.
The cave is actually fairly short, with one main entrance, and three exits, one exit being very small.
To get to the caves, from Hollywood Boulevard, take either Canyon Drive or Bronson Avenue (Bronson merges eventually into Canyon). On Overland Avenue, to the left of a convenience store 7-11, hanging off the neighboring building is a giant hot dog! Thai Town Express inherited the giant fiberglass hot dog from Red's Hot Dog when they moved into the location in 2007. Well on November 16th, 2011, after the Thai restaurant had long been closed, the hot dog was removed from its building and relocated over to Overland Avenue, as its former home was scheduled to be destroyed. Now, although it overlooks a place that actually sells hot dogs, it technically sits on the edge of a building that houses the National Promotions and Advertising Inc or NPA.
So if you want to see a giant hot dog, head on over to Overland Avenue and maybe, if you wish, get a hot dog at the 7-11 next door. Located in the parking lot of a mini mall at the corner of Vermont Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard is an art installation called Vermonica, named by joining the two street names.
The art installation was only suppose to be temporary since Klein originally borrowed the lights from a light yard located not far away on Santa Monica Boulevard.
Vermonica was installed about fifteen years before Urban Light, another art installation located outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wilshire Boulevard. Like trees all planted in nice neat rows, a forest of 202 street lights can be explored outside the Los Angeles County Museum of Art on Wilshire Boulevard.
Chris Burden, the artist, began collecting the street lamps in December 2000, purchasing the first two at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.
Urban Light has appeared in at least a few movies including "No Strings Attached" and "Valentine's Day", a commercial, a Tori Amos music video, and even in some television shows.
Rumored to have once been a Volkswagen repair shop, then Hole in the Wall Welding, the Spider Bug has been there for decades. Gravity Hills are locations at the base of a slope or hill where supposedly if you park your car and leave it in neutral it will somehow roll up the slope of the nearby hill. Scientific reasoning often explains this as an optical illusion which makes it appear as if you are rolling up hill.
Eventually, we plan on checking out some of these and seeing if our car does indeed roll uphill, but for now, since we had so many inquiries, we decided to put up this stub of a page to handle the requests. Altadena Gravity HillDirections to the supposed Altadena Gravity Hill: From Highway 210 in Pasadena, head north on Lake Avenue. Antioch Gravity HillApparently this gravity hill is a result of children who died on the scene. The Gravity Hill can be found on Empire Mine Road not too far from the Black Diamond Mines. Note, the Charman Bridge in Ojai also is rumored to have had a school bus go over it, this one back in the 30s or 40s. Brentwood Gravity HillThe Brentwood Gravity Hill is the classic urban legend of a bus filled with children in the fifties skidding off a road into water and all the children drowning. Cabazon Gravity HillRumor has it that on Morongo Indian Reservation there exists a road where if you park your car at the bottom of the hill it will roll up it. Corona Gravity HillThe gravity hill in Corona involves a distraught young girl driving recklessly down Lichau Road after her boyfriend broke up with her.
Jamul Gravity HillJamul is a San Diego suburb where a gravity hill exists on a set of train tracks. La Jolla Gravity HillSupposedly located on West Muirlands Drive between Nautilus and Fay Streets. Livermore Gravity HillMile Marker 157 on Patterson Pass Road in Livermore is the location of yet another Gravity Hill. If the ghosts of children or teenage lovers isn't enough for you, the ghosts of angry naked football players lurk around a tree near Gravity Hill.
Although there could be as many as two gravity hills in Moorpark with a possible other hill located on Happy Camp Road. Placer CountyOn Highway 20 between Truckee and Nevada City, approximately four miles west of the Interstate 80 junction and 80 miles east of Sacramento, exists Placer County's so called Magnetic Hill. Santa Paula Gravity HillThe Santa Paula Gravity Hill is located on Toland Road off of Highway 126 between Valencia and Ventura. Sonoma Gravity HillThis Gravity Hill was created by a bus full of children hit a dip, lost control and went off a nearby cliff killing everyone.
SylmarThe supposed approximate address of the gravity hill is 12772 Kagel Canyon Road, not too far from Lopez Canyon. Taft Gravity HillAccording to one of our commentators, there is a Gravity Hill between Taft and the small town of Fellows out by Route 33. Whittier Gravity HillThis gravity hill is rumored to be in a cemetery called Rose Hills located in Whittier, California (down in the Los Angeles area) on Workman Mill Road, near Rio Hondo Community College and the interchange of the 605 and 60 freeways. Whittier also has Turnbull Canyon Road which is suppose to be full of Satanic cults, UFO sightings, and a gravity hill! International Fiberglass is perhaps best known here as the company that made the Muffler Men that stand guard on our highways, but they also built other fiberglass statues such as the well known Sinclair Dinosaurs and the less known, but oh so awesome, giant rooster like this one in Los Angeles!
International Fiberglass specifically targeted chicken restaurants for the big birds, and advertised them as "Something to Crow About . Originally, I thought there were only four of these massive birds in California (one in the hills near Jackson, one in someone's side yard in Lockeford, and only one on top of a building in Los Angeles). On Route 1 in Mendocino County in the small town of Gualala is the Gualala Nursery and Trading Company and it is filled with giant metal dinosaurs!


Superior Poultry in the Chinatown portion of Los Angeles on North Broadway plays host to a giant rooster on top of its chicken store.
LA Fresh Poultry in Los Angeles on North Virgil plays host to a giant rooster on top of its chicken store.
Nestled on the corner of Walden and Carmelita in Beverly Hills, sits The Witch's House, more formally known as The Spadena House. It was relocated to Beverly Hills in either 1926 or 1934, and since then has been the subject of many urban legends including: a story stating that it was built for a movie version of Hansel and Gretel, a story stating that it was built by a Snow White and the Seven Dwarves fanatic, and a story that states the owner use to dress up like a witch on Halloween to give out candy (which is highly possible and rumored to be the source of the house's name). A few years ago, the house underwent major restoration as the current owner named Michael Libow is trying to preserve the whimsical structure.
The house has also made a cameo appearance in the movie, Clueless, starring Alicia Silverstone. So you're cruising down Vineland Avenue in North Hollywood and as you come up to the intersection with Burbank Boulevard, there he is, standing thirty two feet tall, grinning evilly down at you, scaring the pants off of you!
The maniacally grinning, has X's for eyes clown proudly stands on the corner bearing a large drum with the liquor store's name emblazoned on it.
The liquor store is called Circus Liquor and it proudly boasts 750 types of beer, 1000 types of spirits, and am impressive selection of kegs!
The clown and liquor store are also something of a movie celebrity having appeared in a few movies and music videos. So if you suffer from coulrophobia and thus are deathly afraid of evil clowns, perhaps you should get your alcohol from some other liquor store than Circus Liquor.
Rumored to once have been potentially a Jerky Shop, more recently it was reported by my friend, Eric, that it is was a lemonade stand the last time he passed by. Nicknamed the "Land of Four Seasons", Tehachapi is on Highway 58 between Bakersfield and the Mojave. Most of the carved trees and stumps that make up Tehachapi's Avenue of Faces are either in the city park: Philip Marx Central Park or in the streets nearby the City Park, although carvings and faces occasionally appear throughout town.
The carvings are the work of local artist, Kent Holmgren, who has been carving wood for over twenty years, using chain saws to make his art pieces. Sadly in August 2015, the Tehachapi Valley Recreation and Park District had the carvings at both the city park and at Brite Lake suddenly removed. Tehachapi also has excellent winds for gliding, a large turbine wind farm, as well as alpaca and ostrich farms. In November 2015, the stairs were dismantled, stripped off the concrete core that rises up out of the beach. Due to cliffs on either side, there is no way to get to the beach below unless you swim (not recommended) or take a kayak. Located right in the downtown area of Riverside, taking over almost an entire block, is Tio's Tacos, and visiting it will simply amaze you. Additionally one can find appliances turned into artwork, bicycles cemented into the pavement, a strange tee pee structure, assorted signs, a bunch of Barbie dolls, and even some robots. So stop on by Tio's Tacos, get some food, relax on the patio, and take in the amazing works of folk art! In 1960, Harold and Ted Haserjian founded a carpet business in Santa Clarita, California called Carpeteria. Evoking images of magical flying carpets, the Carpeteria Genie was a twenty foot tall genie, looking like he came right out of a magical lamp ready to grant wishes to the carpet buyers entering the store below his feet. In 1960, Harold and Ted Haserjian founded a carpet business in Santa Clarita called Carpeteria. A  We quickly outgrew our little house, so in 1986 we bought a bigger one closer to the beach with a bayou in back. In 1976 a vocational-technical center was built in Pascagoula, and Bobbie and I taught there until we retired.A  During those years I also taught evening classes at the vo-tech, community college, and for Ingalla€™s Shipbuilding apprentice program. During our time on the coast and my two there before Bobbie, we evacuated many times for hurricanes, tropical storms, and warnings, but in 1998 we made the mistake of staying for hurricane Georges as it was predicted to go west.
In the fall of 1974 when Bobbie was ready to return to work, a new vocational business education program was started at Pascagoula High School.A  Because she had the required vocational business certification, Bobbie was hired to teach intensive business education, a position she held for about 15 years.
Life was good in Pascagoula and Johnny and Bobbie followed Mississippi State basketball while Jay was a player and Mississippi College basketball while Jeff was a player.A  They also were active in First United Methodist Church of Pascagoula and enjoyed activities with close friends. If you implement my coaching style and techniques into your offensive and defensive schemes , I guarantee you will win over 70% of your games year after year. Well from the fanciful mind of one Horace Bell, a frontier author who wrote and founded a newspaper devoted to social commentary called the Porcupine. Supposedly if you take out a carpenter's level, it will actually prove that you are indeed rolling downhill.
Two right turns after Rinaldi Street the road will appear to crest and run downhill into a another hill ahead. To get to this Gravity Hill go down East Cotati Avenue towards Petaluma Hill Road (or take Rohnert Park Expressway east to Petaluma Hill Road). But as it turns out there are easily at least 30 of these birds lurking in California, including a full on infestation in the Los Angeles area! There are no less than five that can be seen from the road, plus additional dinosaurs inside the shop, as well as other metal non dinosaurs. It's your standard white bird, with the typical paint job of so many other Giant Roosters in the city.
I had already been called for my army physical and figured I would be drafted soon, so I just went ahead and enlisted in the Army for three years.A  I took my basic training at Ft. I always thought it was pretty amazing that the letter got delivered to me on that ship in the middle of the ocean, from Neshoba to the Atlantic in less than nine days.A  We disembarked in Bremerhaven and boarded a train that took us to Kaiserslautern. My car was a welcome sight when I finally got to the docks where it was the next day, and after getting it, I found my way south and headed home.A  I had driven in Paris, Rome, and on the autobahns of Germany and thought I had seen the worlda€™s craziest and most reckless drivers, but New Yorkers were right in there with them. The most common species is the metal T-Rex, and he's often found alone, much like a real T-Rex. I was then sent to Germany, where I was stationed with the 32nd Artillery Brigade (became the 32nd Army Air Defense Command in 1966) in Kaiserslautern. I know your players will.                                                                                      Discipline and Protocol The first thing a coach must do is establish a clear vision of discipline and protocol. Camel Corps that Jefferson Davis had brought over from Middle East and put into action back in the mid 1800s (although some stories claim Old Topsy might have just been a descendant of one of those camels). However, there are several high concentration areas of dinosaurs spread throughout California; areas where not one, not two, but often half a dozen or more dinosaurs gather band together to greet roadside travelers. A He was always hands on and his love for the DC community and its people was unconditional.
A coach must enact team rules and a clear expectation of behavior inorder to develop a first class program. As a coach , you must be fully in charge and you must believe in your coaching technques and philosophy. Mammoths, giant apes, giraffes, tapirs, deer, horses, and even a giant sea serpent all have gotten in on the metal sculpture craze and can often be found with their more common dinosaur friends. Yes, your philosophy must be constantly evolving , but the basic grassroots of your philosophy must stay consistant.  Your players must understand that you are the boss ( not a bully or a tyrant) and what you say is the law, unequivocally the law without question. You will be facing "downhill," evergreen trees to your left with something that resembles a flood control channel past that, a wall of rock and dirt to your right.
As a coach , you must love the game of basketball ( The Greatest Game of Them All ) too much , to let  the attitude or lack of discpline of a  few players destroy the hope and  dreams of the many. From my experience, I have found that a discipline , committed and even less talented player will out perform two to one , a superstar that is not committed to the decorum of your program. Just think of it like this " Desire and Passion will kick undiscilpine talent in the butt seven days a week." The coach must emphasis the correct and desirable behaviors. The coach must stress good morals and values and instill those attributes in their players.  My belief is that if your players are discipline , then they also become coachable. As a coach ,you must understand that the will to win , the will to prepare ,  the will to condition ,the will to be a team player , the will to develop  fundamentally sound both offensively and defensively can only be accomplish If the players are willing to discipline themselves to the expectation of the coach and the values of the program .
I always say, before a player can believe in the system , they must believe in the coach and the decorum of his program. With these things in place, only then will your team be able to perform consistantly on a winning level. Success comes from the right attitude , a determined focus , a belief in the coach and a belief in fellow teammates.
When all of these aspects are in place, players become   winners, regardless of the score or game outcome. They become a winner in life .                                                                                     The development of my defensve coaching philosophy?          My junior year in college, our basketball team played Shaw University out of Raleigh , NC.


That year Shaw did not have a very good team and we felt really good about getting a WIN that night.
During the week white parents were seen in and out of the facility and on the weekend they would pick-up their children and take them home.
My time was spend one block over on 13th and V Street working out of Harrison Playground and Harrison Elementary. I ran off  picks , screens ,took the ball out, brought the ball up and worked my butt off trying to get my hands on the basketball. He kept me from getting the ball all night long . I was of no help, I knew little or nothing about Hillcrest and how it served the community.
Being the point guard  , I struggle to get us in our offensive  and When I did take a shot or try to get my teammate involved , I was tired from all the running and cutting that  I had to do inorder to get the ball .
That night  I was not  very effective at all.That experience stayed with me over the years. I was more concerned about the knuckleheads I would encounter hanging out in the U Street corridor. From that single experience I realize then that denial pressure on a  scorer or a point guard is the is the most effective element in any defensive scheme. I had to consider that If this technique affected me being a college point guard and after being a starter in over 50 games , it should have the same or a similar affect on a high school player . Yes, teams have been running Box and One or Triangle and Two Zone Defenses for over fifty years , that is nothing new. But when you take the strongest elements of those two zone defenses which is the DENIAL ELEMENT  and integrate it with a powerful and aggressive Man to man defense , you have created a monster.
Everything I do defensively in based on denial pressure on the scorer or on the point guard or on both.                                                                          My Offensive Philosophy    My offensive Plilosophy was developed during my senior year. We discussed what remedies we could use to combat these acts of truancy.A My thoughts, why not try to use athletics as a motivational tool? The athletic team concept helped me to improve my school attendance and discipline, why not use the same vehicle for these knuckleheads (I know a knucklehead when I see one, because I was one). Shaw had a freshman guard name Kelly Utley ( All CIAA Guard and Shaw University Hall Of Famer). A I would notice after school the young men who should have been attending Harrison during school hours would migrate to the playground. He was an amazingly good athlete.  I was assigned to guard him and he would release down court every time we shot the ball. Cousins and Roving Leader Director, Stanley Anderson, I held tryouts for the Harrison touch football team on Harrison Playground in the evenings after school. You name the sport, football, basketball, baseball, track and field, most could run like the wind.
I wished that I could have been that talented at their young age.Getting them to tryout for the team was easy, but getting them to improve their attendance and their grades was not going to be an easy chore.
The rules of participation were; regular school attendance, maintain a C average, respectful behavior (no profanity) and be on time for school and practice. Several I had to dismiss from the team or I benched them in favor of a not so talented teammate, but as we started to win without them, they changed their rebel ways.A I convinced other elementary schools in walking distance of Harrison to participate, Garrison and Grimke principals liked the concept and came aboard. The idea went over so well other elementary schools wanted to participate and the program went city-wide. With my coaching genius, Harrison Elementary won the first City Wide Elementary Touch Football League Championship. It took several practices before Andrew Johnson my high school teammate and police officer could convince his colleagues to take off their guns during practice.A The league was the brainchild of the late Mayor for Life, Marion Barry. The league was designed to help improve police community relations and it did for a minute.A In 1968 all hell broke loose after the gun related death of our Prince of Peace in Memphis, Tn, Dr. I remember NFL Hall of Fame and Green Bay Packer player Willie Wood and I standing on the corner of 9th and U Streets after having lunch at the in-crowd hangout of the Che Maurice restaurant. It was a beautiful bright sun shiny April 4th day when someone rode by in a car and yelled "Harold Bell they just shot and killed Dr.
A Our boss Stanley Anderson requested that we stay on the streets because we might be able to save a child. A I was told to report to the Third District HQ to meet with Assistant Chief Timon O'Bryant. He told the officers to watch my back because I would be on the streets with them trying to keep the peace. He then gave me a police badge to assist me in getting through police and military barricades. The Chili Bowl was the only business allowed to stay open during the riots, thanks to an assist from Chief U. After the White House had ordered all businesses to shut-down, Luke intervene on behalf of Ben's explaining to President Lyndon B.
Johnson that Ben's needed to stay open for first respondents, doctors, nurses, police, fire departments, military personnel and youth advocates like myself, we needed some place to eat. The administrators at the Hillcrest Children's Center reported having problems with neighborhood youth and some adult residents harassing staff and family members of their patients.
A friend on the staff of Children's Hospital recommended that they talk with me about the problem.
Coaches if you integrate that single element into your transition and offensive game plan you will increase your scoring opportunities by 25%.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         BUYING A CORVETTEThe purchasing a car is generally one of the biggest and most involved decisions that people have to make. A The tour of the facility was an eye opener for me, I could not believe there was a indoor swimming pool, in door and outdoor basketball courts, overnight facilities for patients and a cafeteria.
Your Corvette is a special purchase, and you want it to be a decision you can look back on with pride .
Long wanted to open the facility to kids in the neighborhood on the weekends (Saturday only).
I thought this was a great ideal, but there was a catch, they wanted me to run the program. Ultimately, you'll have to attend to practical matters but right now, just let your imagination run free.
Get yourself a book about Corvettes or read the Corvette history pages here and around the Internet. There was no-way I was giving up that job, I still had dreams of playing in the NFL.I had a sit-down discussion with my wife Hattie, my brother Earl and my friend Andrew Johnson, both DC cops.
Chances are good that you've already got a good idea of your dream Corvette, or you will find that one era of  Corvette speaks to you more than the others. We reached a compromise and figure out a way to open the facility on Saturdays to neighborhood kids without me missing a game.
The point of the exercise is to narrow down your search to a range of several year corvette and a  certain corvette body style - maybe with a list of desired features. Ask yourself if you really want an automatic or manual transmission corvette  , do you want a car to modify and race, or just a classic corvette cruiser? Perhaps most importantly, do you plan to do a lot of restoration work to make this Corvette truly your own creation, or do you want a turn-key corvette "new car" experience?
A The first ever students bused in from Tacoma-Park Seven Day Adventist Church from Tacoma-Park, Md. Today, high school and college students can earn credits toward graduation for volunteering in the community (unheard of before 1968).The first ever NFL Films nationally televised (CBS) community promo was video taped at Hillcrest in 1972. Integrity and honesty were their hallmarks during all the community First accomplished at the Hillcrest Saturday Program, they had my back.
