Mayor Garcetti: Where’s the Lindbergh Beacon?!

Dec. 29, 2006, Lindbergh Beacon
A not great photo by me showing the Lindbergh beacon in December 2006.

Update: Mayor Eric Garcetti says: Checking on it right now–I love the beacon and will be sure it gets lit if it hasn’t been.

Dec. 9, 2014: As of last night, the Lindbergh beacon was still dark. We will be waiting with our fingers crossed.

Dec. 11, 2014: Still no Lindbergh beacon.

Dec. 18, 2014: Nope, nothing.

I was downtown Saturday night and noticed that the Lindbergh beacon had not been lit again this year. The decorations in Grand Park are nice — but they are no replacement for firing up the beacon on top of City Hall.

Come on, Mayor Garcetti. You always say you are big on L.A. history and traditions. This is a big one.
