'Movie in the Park' This Saturday...

...or more appropiately, 'Movie in the School Yard.' Our Wilshire Center B.I.D. will be presenting the film, 'Iron Man 2' this Saturday evening, September 28th, at 7pm, on the great lawn of the RFK Community School campus. You will enter on to the lawn through the Wilshire Blvd gates, located in the RFK Inspiration Park, directly across the street from the Gaylord. Bring your blanket and enjoy! (Wilshire Center B.I.D. will provide the popcorn.)

I was just reminded, by her proud papa, that our talented & creative, Miranda, is currently competing on this season's 'FACE OFF, VETS vs ROOKIES', on the Syfy channel and is doing 'extremely well.' From what I have seen so far this season, Miranda has the talent to take it all the way! Let's all root for her.

This past Summer, we briefly had Bri stay with us here at the Gaylord, who was seen on the 'MasterChef' season that just recently ended on FOX. Bri did quite well for herself, making it into the top 6 and with being a vegetarian! She has quite the drive, knows all about flavors (including meat) & how to work a kitchen and has since moved on to take advantage of greater chef opportunities in NYC. Many good wishes to Bri with her endeavors in the Big Apple.

What's That?...

(The ad, pictured above, is from the 1990's. THESE ARE NOT THE CURRENT RATES in the above ad.)

When available and at this time;

BACHELOR UNITS            330-525 sq ft          $775-$1025/mo.
SINGLE UNITS                   410-670 sq ft          $1050-$1400/mo.
ONE BEDROOM UNITS    720-1050 sq ft        $1450-$2000/mo.
TWO BEDROOM UNITS   1380 sq ft                $2450/mo.

I am still surprised when some inquiring people respond the rental rates we offer at the Gaylord are expensive. (The rents are comparable to other apartment houses of similar status on Wilshire Blvd and we are in Los Angeles. For those of you coming from New York, San Francisco, London, Paris, Tokyo, Hong Kong, you know what a bargain you are getting here and especially with the large size of the apartments.) My reply to them is with 3 points;

1.) It's the Gaylord.
2.) Location, location, location... on historic Wilshire Boulevard and central to everywhere in the L.A. basin, downtown, westside, valleys, beaches, mountains, studios, universities, EVERYWHERE.

and 3.) It's 'The' GAYLORD. Know the history.

You may scroll through the 'Older Posts' to find availability and bits of history on our stately home.

Car Buffs, Celebrity Buffs...

Just down the 'boulevard,' at the corner of Fairfax, is the Petersen Automotive Museum and for those of you into car culture this is worth paying a visit to. The museum has a permanent streetscape exhibit, located on the ground floor, telling the history of the automobile in southern California with a lot of fine examples from over the years.

Currently, and why the husband & I went to visit this past weekend, are 2 exhibits of interest. 'Fins: Form Without Function' is an exhibit of those beautiful fins (now, who doesn't like a sleek fin?) that started to adorn the automobile during the mid-century decades. In this exhibit you will even find Jayne Mansfield's 1957 pink Lincoln Premier... just as sweet & pretty as the owner!

The other exhibit, 'Pickups: The Art Of Utility' is all about the transformation of the pick up truck over the years. And since the husband & I both drive a pick up truck (my last 3 vehicles have been pick ups) we had to see this exhibit.

There is also a great Steve McQueen owned classic jaguar on hand!

Admission is $15.00.
