Amazingly it feels like being in the country, birds sing, the grass is tall, the temperature is several degrees cooler than in nearby downtown. its a pretty cool place.
R-2 (which means we could build more if we want, although because its on an alley this may be not allowed)

the terrain is great as you can see it sits in this valley surrounded by park and dodger stadium. when there are games we will know it. good news we will have free parking for games. the LA police academy is right next door.
even while the birds chirp in our little valley, when you drive out of the canyon you drive straight into chinatown with downtown about a mile away.
The area is pretty famous in LA for displacing a Hispanic community in the 40's with the construction of Dodger Stadium. The community is still very strong. Still blue collar hispanic and bohemian art and movie industry people. The area is called Chavez Ravine. Ry Cooder made a concept album titled the same a few years ago. Here is my favorite song.
