Bonnie Brae and 6th

Bonnie Brae and 6th – I love this area and this intersection particularly.

I see no suspicious activity at this time

The Rampart Police department is actually located maybe 5 blocks down from this doughnut shop.

This corner was a huge magnet for shady activity through the 90s and early 2000s.  The illicit activities were so brazen and went on for years and years and even several years after the Rampart Scandal.  I know it did not get cleaned up til 04 or 05.

I Google Bonnie Brae and 6th from time to time just to see what comes up. There was a Hotel Californian located at this very intersection, just opposite from where you see the Bonnie Brae sign, built in the 20s, demolished in the 90s.  My next mission is to photograph this sign in Los Feliz.
