The The Silver Lake News is proud to endorse Carolyn Ramsay for the Los Angeles City Council. As Chief of Staff and Field Representative for Council Member Tom LaBonge, Carolyn has an outstanding record over the past nearly 20 years of standing up for our local communities to create more parks and open space, reduce crime, and fix our crumbling streets and sidewalks. Her experience dealing with City Hall makes her the most qualified to lead us forward. And with voter participation expected to be at an all-time low, your participation in the process is needed now more than ever before.

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 Ivory Tower designed by A.E. Crist c.1924 [ ] [ ]The fanciful castle was originally known as the White Tower, built as a wedding gift for one of the daughters of the Pantages family of theater fame. The current owner, a film art producer and art director has added whimsical details in keeping with the home's one-of-a-kind character.
