Romaine Street at Sycamore is an architectural mess – 7000 Romaine is the Art Deco building that Howard Hughes had purchased in 1927 and made his headquarters, now restored to perfection but surrounded by new sleek glass office buildings, and old exposed major power lines on wooden poles too, and just down the block from the noisy and dusty Mexican cement plant. Everything is all mixed up. It's a romaine mixed salad. ~ Thursday, July 9, 2020
