Re: "Pinching pennies in Hollywood," June 4: There's no doubt that people are spending less on essentials and incidentals. However, some attractions for tourists and locals alike are free and fun. Case in point: Los Angeles' Metro system, which has glamorous stations at Hollywood and Vine, and Hollywood and Highland. At the latter, in front of the sidewalk entry, free Metro Art Tours start at 10 a.m. every first Saturday of the month. Morley J. Helfand, Metro Art Council Docent Arcadia

A dozen people were in custody Wednesday morning following a wild night of cat and mouse between Los Angeles police and marauding bands of youths who were robbing tourists and storefronts in Hollywood, officials said. One adult and 11 juveniles were arrested Tuesday night, and all but one were booked on suspicion of robbery, said LAPD Sgt. John Barkley. The 12th arrest was for receiving stolen property, he said. Police said the 12 were part of large marauding bands of young people who conducted a string of robberies, assaults and acts of vandalism along Hollywood Boulevard.

Think of the new W Hollywood Hotel & Residences complex as equal parts Chateau Marmont, L.A. Live and Pershing Square. The 15-story, $600-million development, designed by Dallas-based architecture firm HKS, combines on a single L-shaped site the W's hotel and condominium towers with a 375-unit apartment block called 1600 Vine. The whole ensemble is draped in gigantic billboards, wrapped around a sizable public plaza leading to a Metro Red Line subway stop and squeezed in next to the landmark 1924 Taft Building at Hollywood and Vine.
