Before Scientology HQ Was Blue, Chris Brown's Parking Tickets

New, 12 comments

HOLLYWOOD: Crack historian/commenter Vokoban has dug up a 1930 LA Times article on the completion of the Cedars of Lebanon Hospital on Fountain Ave.--the property that would eventually become the Church of Scientology's West Coast headquarters. The LAT wrote then: "It has a capacity of 250 beds and cost approximately $1,500,000 to erect. Some idea of its massiveness may be gained from the fact that the materials used for the concrete work, furnished by Consolidated Rock Products Company, amounted to 8900 tons of rock and 6800 tons of washed sand." CoL merged with Mount Sinai Hospitals in 1961 to became Cedars-Sinai. [Flickr]

WEST HOLLYWOOD: Chris Brown responded today on Twitter to the allegations that he's parking all his fancy cars in his small West Hollywood building's disabled parking spaces. He writes: "My parking spaces in my building that were assigned to me when I bout this crib are painted over with handicap and no Parking signs" and "My neighbor also calls the parking enforcement everyday so I get a 360 dollar ticket for each of my cars. (everyday)." Too bad he doesn't live in LA proper; the city could use the revenue. [Twitter]
