The Silver Lake News
Silver Lake's Most Visited Community Website

over 10.9 million hits!

TIME TO SAY GOODBYE. Regrettably, after 12 years of service to the Silver Lake community, The Silver Lake News will no longer exist. The decision was not ours to make, rather our hosting company, Connecting Neighbors has made the decision to discontinue service. The company claims that “the platform is beginning to show its age requiring greater resources to be expended just to maintain the service. Thus, with our business emphasizing new and exciting things, we've made a decision to discontinue the ConnectingNeighbors service as of July 31, 2015”. We hope to enjoy many more years of personal connection to the neighborhood through participation and whenever we’re invited. If you would like to stay in touch, you can always reach me by email at –Michael Locke, Editor

LA Architecture 4 Sale. As a realtor, I try to visit as many open houses as I can during the week. Normally I bring my camera along, not only as a memory of my visit, but also to create a permanent archive of architectural photographs for the Los Feliz Improvement Association of which I am a board member. If you are looking for a home to buy in the Los Angeles market, or if you simply enjoy taking an 'arm-chair' tour of the neighborhood, I hope you will enjoy the journey. NOTE: These wonderful homes were available for sale as of the date they were posted. Photos have been posted with the most recent offerings being posted first. Please keep in mind that the Los Angeles real estate market is a fast-moving target! If you have an interest in seeing any of them, please call me first to check availability. I look forward to working with you! Pictured is the John Southern Home & Studio, Urban Operations 2005 in Silver Lake listed for $1.2M. For more details, please visit John Southern Home & Studio, John Southern, Urban Operations 2005

Thanks to you, my recently published book, "Silver Lake Chronicles: Exploring an Urban Oasis in Los Angeles" continues to be a hot seller at local bookstores. Please keep spreading the word and if you haven't already, please 'Like' us on the Silver Lake Chronicles FACEBOOK page. In the meantime, my co-author Vincent Brook and I are working on a follow-up work tentatively entitled Silver Lake Chronicles II: Iconoclasts, Bohemians & Visionaries of the Modern Age.

For our readers with an appreciation for architecture, Los Angeles is a treasure trove, however due to its vast size (469 sq. miles!) it could take a lifetime to explore! The City of the Angels has over 1025 officially-designated historic-cultural monuments in addition to the many architectural wonders that have no official designation. It is my pleasure to share my personal discoveries with you, our readers on my page "Treasures of Los Angeles Architecture". Many of the images shown here are well-recognized, however, I hope that you will "find something new'" every time you return for a visit. Pictured is the Pacific Design Center (PDC) designed by Cesar Pelli between 1975 and 2011.
