Los Angeles, California

"They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

This is the parking lot that Joni Mitchell was reportedly singing about. It had used to be a beautifully landscaped lot containing an old house and surrounded by guest houses, called the Garden Of Allah. Now it is a strip mall containing a McDonalds, an El Pollo Loco, a bank, a few other restaurants and assorted businesses, and of course, a parking lot.

The big stucco shopping center that you can see across the street stands where Schwab's Drug Store used to be. You can see it (Schwabs, that is) in the 1950 movie "Sunset Blvd".
