912 S. Mariposa Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90006
READER SUBMITTAL: "I officially nominate the K-town box (address 912 S. Mariposa Ave) as the UGLIEST BUILDING IN LA. Squeezed between old and beautiful 1920's Koreatown buildings, this 3 story residential building stands out like herpes on a debutant. The "NOW RENTING" sign hangs on the sooty white facade year long and domestic violence shrieks bleed out the small windows at night. But besides that, the building is a shameless box. The lack of windows makes it look like a modern day prison and there is really nothing to it except that it's just one giant box. The photo actually makes it look nicer than it really is, but once you drive by it'll make you shiver and puke."
