Better late than never: a piece of Black History Month and architecture and love for the city of angels all in one post!

Living in and loving cities for me has always meant to see more, wider, longer, higher and deeper— under the surface, behind what people have said and sometimes off the shelves of dusty cupboards in your downstairs neighbor’s overcrowded kitchen. Los Angeles is exactly how I’ve learned to read local history, and actually care about it in this way.

Now that night view of the city from Griffith Observatory will mean so much more than a pretty picture on someone’s Facebook wall.
