Atop City Hall -- The Lindbergh Beacon or Eye of Sauron?

We got a nice mention by Lucinda Michele in her Metblog on Los Angeles.

Lucinda looked up and noticed Thursday night that the beacon atop LA City Hall was lit. (It’s not on all the time.) She gives a brief history of the light, and links to my YouTube video from the top of City Hall.

She also asks for more pics of the actual beacon from the top. I don’t have any, but here’s one of the narrow, steep stairway that leads to the beacon.

And another of Charlie Beck’s new office, taken from the top of City Hall.

For more of this kind of fun stuff – plus an interview with Ricky Jay and white mariachi Mateo Stoneman, check out my show Off-Ramp.
