The Ambassador Hotel

Last week escrow closed on LAUSD's purchase of the Ambassador Hotel, ending a 10-year tumultuous legal battle over the historic hotel's future. Preservationists want the Ambassador saved and converted into a school. But some within LAUSD say that's financially unfeasible and that it makes more sense to raze it and build a new structure. What will be its fate? Larry Mantle talks with Ken Bernstein of the Los Angeles Conservancy and Caprice Young, member of the Los Angeles School Board.
