Time Out says

LA, you're not so good about preserving the past. For every Ambassador Hotel or Ray Bradbury house that meets the wrecking ball with an uproar, there are dozens of other historical spots that quietly disappear. To celebrate the launch of the online database HistoricPlacesLA, crime novelist Denise Hamilton, Libros Schmibros founder David Kipen, LA Office of Historic Resources manager Ken Bernstein, LA Weekly staff writer Dennis Romero and KCET arts and culture columnist Lynell George sit down with KCRW's Saul Gonzalez to discuss the places from the past that make LA feel like home today.
