Photo Journal: 88 Cities - Los Angeles, California - June 2019

Unless you are standing in the middle of the city of Los Angeles it's difficult to look at the city without seeing another city!  Los Angeles County is made up of 88 cities and is the most populous county in the United States.  I don't know how many can be seen from the Griffith Observatory or standing behind the famous Hollywood sign (probably more than 20) but it's "city" as far as the eye can see!

88 Cities

Unless you are standing in the middle of the city of Los Angeles it's difficult to look at the city without seeing another city! Los Angeles County is made up of 88 cities and is the most populous county in the United States. I don't know how many can be seen from the Griffith Observatory or standing behind the famous Hollywood sign (probably more than 20) but it's "city" as far as the eye can see!

Behind Hollywood

When the "Hollywoodland" sign was erected in 1923 to advertise a new upscale real estate development its $21,000 pricetag was as epic as the phenomenon that would become Tinseltown. When the "Save the Sign" campaign was launched in 1978 to save the rotting and termite-infested sign $21,000 was shy of the $27,700 required to rebuild EACH LETTER of the sign. ´╗┐If it isn't physically the "largest sign in the world" (it is at 450 feet and 240 tons), it's surely the grandest; marking the world's epicenter of motion pictures and cinema arts. ´╗┐Standing behind the sign feels like a backstage pass to the world. All eyes on you...
