. . . one house—and one story—at a time.
The amazingly detailed blog Berkeley Square Los Angeles is slowly but steadily bringing back to life the once-chic Berkeley Square in West Adams. Raise your hand if you've ever heard of it. (I hadn't.)
This gated community, once home to the elite of Los Angeles business and society, was lost in 1972 to the construction of the 10 Freeway.
The relatively anonymous but tirelessly assiduous blogger provides post-by-post information about the houses that formerly graced these streets.
He also goes beyond the façades, to deliver the stories behind the houses.
This being Los Angeles, the tales include murder, adultery, pandering, and . . . well, read and find out.
