RIDE THE REDLINE TO BARNSDALL ART PARK
By Eye Spy LA Editor
10/05/2006


TELL YOUR FRIENDS



Take a ride on the Redline to the Sunset/Vermont station where you can visit the Barnsdall Art Park and walk around the eclectic Los Feliz Village.

Mary Sue Owen and a couple of her friends recently took a tour of the Hollyhock House at Barnsdall Art Park. I suggested they walk up Vermont and have lunch at Fred 62 - one of my favorite places for casual sidewalk dining - knowing they'd need their energy to climb the stairs up Olive Hill. The restaurant was created by two Freds both born in 1962 - hence the name. It turned out lunch was a big hit, especially the shakes and the Thai Cobb Salad.

Bonus: great views of the Hollywood Hills including the Hollywood Sign and the Griffith Observatory from Hollyhock House at the Barnsdall Art Park.

They also enjoyed browsing Skylight Books, a "fiercely" independent bookstore a couple of doors down, where they found a nice section of books on Los Angeles and California. Located at 1818 North Vermont Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90027 - 323.660.1175 Hours: 10a.m.-10p.m.
