Like something out of sick, twisted episode of some sick, twisted show, we're learning that The Derby on Los Feliz Blvd. is under threat of dissapearing in our lifetime. LA Observed posts about last nights Greater Griffith Park Neighborhood Council (GGPNC) meeting where the issue of the Derby's demise was brought up.
As if it weren't enough that this is even being considered, Adler Realty has a listing up for the property ($4 million+/develop for mixed-use). The Derby has long been associated with Hollywood history, starting with an idea by Cecil B. DeMille and later being a Vince Vaughn hang-out in the movie Swingers. We have a feeling the hipsters of Los Feliz won't let this go down without a fight and an ironic t-shirt to commemorate said fight.
