Here In Los Angeles I Have No Car

Transportation courtesy of Los Angeles public transportation.

My favorite L.A. hood is Hancock Park/Windsor Square. Take a look.

The next 2 pics are the former home of the late Nat King Cole, his wife and 2 children including singer Natalie Cole at 400 Muirfield Road in Hancock Park. They were the first black family to move into Hancock Park back in 1949
under opposition from the established white residents.

Rossmore Avenue is one of my favorite streets in all of Los Angeles. It runs thru Hancock Park.

Stopped in the Catalina Jazz Club on Sunset. George Duke and his fusion band performed to a packed house.

Went to another concert recently. This one was featuring 5 time grammy winning soprano, Miss Kathleen Battle joined with jazz pianist Cyrus Chestnut and LA's Albert McNeil Jubilee Singers on her Underground Railroad tour, singing negro spirituals at UCLA's Royce Hall. No picture taking of the concert but the hall was quite beautiful.

No it wasn't empty at all. I got there pretty early to take a look around the theater. That was my first time in the theater.
