Found on EBay – Ambassador Hotel

Ambassador Hotel

This postcard of the Ambassador Hotel has been listed on EBay. Wouldn’t it be neat to go there? Oh wait – we let L.A. Unified tear it down. Bidding starts at $5.

    Yeah, they built a school they ended up not really ending because attendance stayed flat. They could have renovated it, which is green, cost efficient, and increases the value because it remains historical, but instead they tore it down to build right on top of the footprint of the old building. They also felt there was no reason to keep the Cocoanut Grove, so they destroyed that as well. Not too smart.
