More than a dozen buildings in Lincoln Heights and Highland Park received a stamp of approval from neighborhood groups recently as examples of well-preserved and maintained historic structures. The Highland Park Heritage Trust, a local preservation group, honored nine buildings, including a new Jack in the Box restaurant for being built in traditional Craftsman style, and Armando's, a restaurant on Figueroa Street that was recently renovated.

The abandoned brick police station in Highland Park stands as a dilapidated monument to the Los Angeles Police Department's forgotten past. Soon, however, it will become a well-known reminder of it. The razor wire, garbage and weeds that now surround the 73-year-old building will be replaced by neatly landscaped grounds. Its boarded-up walls will be refurbished and painted.

Perhaps only in Southern California could something so simple and functional as a train bridge be so loaded with historical significance. But in Los Angeles people grab their history where they can, and so civic leaders, community activists and historical society volunteers on Saturday rededicated the old Santa Fe Railroad bridge, which spans the Pasadena Freeway in Highland Park, with flags, balloons and speeches.

It is hard to determine what emotion Highland Park residents are trying to convey when they sigh about the Santa Fe Arroyo Seco Railroad Bridge. Are they enthralled by the 1895 architecture? Or are they exasperated because the Metropolitan Transportation Authority wants to ward off graffiti by covering the bridge in razor wire? For Charlie Fisher, a member of the Highland Park Heritage Trust, it's probably a little of both.
