This Week's Top Stories: Panic on the streets as rain and wind are pelting our beautiful faces all over Los Angeles (is this why people in other cities are so ugly?). LA is the king of steep streets, with four of our lovely climbers being recognized as steepest in the US. Two sharks have been spotted swimming in the Venice canals, which have been confirmed by the Santa Monica Aquarium as being leopard sharks. Even more amazing than those sharks was the giant Stay Puft Marshmallow Man that suddenly appeared on Wilshire Boulevard just days after the death of original Ghostbuster Harold Ramis. It was announced this week that the sort of natural-ish looking part of the LA River will be opening on a permanent basis each summer to recreationalists. A beautiful Hancock Park home designed by Gordon Kaufmann has come on the market for $5.99 million, and some commenters want to tear it down. Curbed visits the Hayden Tract in Culver City to see what the future holds for the architecturally renowned industrial area .
