Silver Lake’s Answer to the Eiffel Tower
While Silver Lake has become one of Los Angeles’ more popular neighborhoods, the district wedged between Hollywood and downtown LA sometimes oozes a too-cool-for-school-vibe. One example is the guerilla art project at the corner of Parkman and Silver Lake, across the street from Parkman Triangle. For several months, the gigantic Tinker Toy project gone wrong has vexed neighbors, torn between dumping it or shrugging their shoulders as they walk or drive by it. No one knows who put up the sad ramshackle display, but many residents would like to see it knocked down. They may have their wish granted, naturally: as we walked by it yesterday, it looks like it is one more Santa Ana wind away from oblivion. Perhaps it could be moved to Sunset Junction, saving $100,000 to be spent on a new plaza and artwork at Sunset and Santa Monica?
