Chiseled in stone over the stately Wilshire Boulevard entrance, the motto of the Bullocks Wilshire department store proclaims: "To Build a Business That Will Never Know Completion." Such jazz age optimism is painfully ironic as real estate agents and preservationists try to breathe life back into the Art Deco beauty suffering the indignity of boarded-up windows and doors.

I know a thing or two about what's going on around Southern California. In fact, I generally know what's going on, when and where--whether I want to or not. I know Arcadia from Alhambra from Altadena. I know LACMA is closed on Wednesday; that on Thursdays and Fridays, the Getty requires reservations only until 4 p.m.; and that Fridays are better than Saturdays for public rush tickets. This isn't a boast. This is a job hazard of working in Calendar Weekend.

They rise above the urban sprawl, inviting us to seek them out, and to linger once we get there, taking in their unique views. Lookout points. Whether natural or man-made, they give us a chance to soak in the landscape, to ponder our place in it, and to savor a sense of freedom and possibility. Southern California has loads of lookouts, from tall buildings to soaring hilltops and dramatic coastal bluffs. They're great places to spend part of a day or evening, at least when skies are clear.

Ruth Memmen recalls fondly the twice-daily walks with her senior citizen friends down to the Venice pier to savor "the glorious ocean and the gorgeous sunsets." "Everyone here truly enjoyed walking on the pier. It was our favorite pastime," said Memmen, retired and living alone at a senior citizens' home four blocks from the pier. "It was healthy. It was happy. We had good times just going for walks, 365 days and nights of the year."

Ghost stories have long fired the imagination, working their way into literature, films and folklore. At times, they also have provided a steady income for the parapsychologists who claim they can communicate with these disembodied spirits. In Los Angeles--already the world's fantasy capital--tales of the haunted have become a strong lure for tourists, competing with such earthbound landmarks as Mann's Chinese Theatre and the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The City of Fullerton has been slowly exposing a massive cover-up by its police department. The victim? A three-wall mural painted by the hard-edged co-founder of the post-surrealist movement, Helen Lundeberg, in 1942.

In Southern California, the desire to go directly from point A to point B often clashes with undulating terrain. So, when the going gets tough--topographically speaking--some designers take the stairs. No stairway in Los Angeles commands more architectural attention than the broad Bunker Hill Steps.
