the skunks of los feliz
7.26.2005
 
Today's Daily News bemoans the McMansion-ization of established neighborhoods, a trend that I've noticed (and railed against) here in Los Feliz. According to the piece, neighborhoods are beginning to fight back with anti-infill zoning regulations, something that I hope the GGPNC will look into.

Of course, those brutal stucco boxes that have sprouted on the NW corner of Los Feliz and Vermont do have a certain fascist charm, if you're a size-obsessed yuppie with questionable taste.

Yes. Brutal and awful and hilarious are those gigantic tacky nightmares on the corner of Vermont and Los Feliz. Month after month I've watched them go up, thinking "You've got to be kidding" and again... "You've GOT to be kidding."

And they are built like fortresses, complete with moats. And crocodile pits too, I'll wager. What kind of paranoid cocaine kingpins have built these monstrosities, I wonder?
