The Hollywood Sign turned: 90 years old this past Thursday
I had intended on publishing this post on Thursday, but due to unforeseen events, I was just able to do it. So happy belated 90th Birthday Dear Hollywood Sign.
The W-Hotel in Hollywood did not miss a great opportunity to mark this great milestone. The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce & the Hollywood Sign Trust threw a Birthday Party on Thursday (September 26th, 2013)
Some of you who have been reading my Blogs Posts over the years have seen me write about the Iconic Hollywood Sign.
Those of you who missed them I am including a link to one of themJ (http://actvra.in/44PZ) this was in 2010 and there were some major controversial business activities going on about the status of the sign. As you can see today it all worked outJ. A local Realtor and his partner missed out on a $22million dollar sale, but it is good for Los Angeles historic preservation and the world. The listing agent was a bit miffedJ
To recap the history of the Hollywood Sign : it was originally posted as HOLLYWOODLAND as a Marketing Ploy to attract high end buyers to live in the “New Development” over the years due to land erosions the sign lost the “LAND” part and became “HOLLYWOOD”.
Tourists from all over the world come to photograph this iconic, historic landmark. Last year it went through some major renovation. Hence it looks virtually brand new for being 90 years oldJ. Now keep in mind this was done during the downturn of the economy. The preservationists deserve major kudos for raising the funds and carrying out this huge task.
Since I am a Realtor who has sold many a vacant lot and Single Family Residences over the years in the Beachwood Canyon area, (where the Hollywood Sign is located) I appreciate the extra Value the Hollywood Sign brings to the table. Buyers and sellers understand there is a financial not just esthetic and historic value to being near the sign and to be able to see it from your back or front yard has a value.
So with that said Happy 90th Birthday Dear Hollywood Sign!
