Are you kidding me?
The world-famous HOLLYWOOD sign that has been used by TV and movie directors in more scene-setting shots than a film student could ever count was first erected in 1923 to promote real estate in the fledgling capital of celluloid.
Eighty-five years later, some fear the sign and the hillside on which it sits are threatened by, yes, a real estate deal.
Just what we need, some (mc)mansions next to the Hollywood sign. I guess we get lax with these things, like The Awakening and assume that they’re owned by the city/state/gov’t, but clearly not. I wonder what other well-known landmarks are sitting on eligible for sale land?
I think they’re planning to build a condo development around the Washington Monument. 😉
