Landmark Hit And Run On Miracle Mile


Destroyed again?! Remember on this blog about a year ago when I praised the city for resurrecting those cool streamline “Miracle Mile” neon signs? There was one at Wilshire and La Brea and one at Wilshire and Fairfax. Well, sheesh, those poor babies don’t get no respect. First the originals are hacked down, then the replicas are never turned on, then the one at La Brea is hit by a car, reinstalled in the wrong place and now hit and run?! Councilman LaBonge’s office is looking for money (again) to replace these tiny electric landmarks (they’re asking the chamber and the neighborhood council) but for now the wreckage rests in the DOT yard on Exposition Boulevard, far from the Miracle Mile.
