Former tenants of Lincoln Place Apartments are living outside in a tent city set up on a street corner. 52 families were evicted on December 6th and are now homeless for the holidays. Some families with nowhere to stay have set up a tent city on Frederick Street near their former homes. The apartment buildings are to be torn down and replaced by a massive luxury housing development built by a Colorado real estate company.

Set in Venice, Don Johnson played Attorney Grant Cooper, a burnt-out alcoholic ambulance chaser, who hires Skip Ross (Jay Baruchel) an eighteen-year old law school graduate with a large IQ and passion for justice. Sadly only three episodes of "Just Legal" were aired before the show was canceled. Exterior of Cooper's office building, his office is on the third floor. Windows of the office of Grant H. Cooper, Attorney at Law. Table where Don Johnson and Jay Baruchel would sit at Windward and Pacific.

BaldwinMotelFront

The last days of the Baldwin Motel on Washington Boulevard.

Made famous in April 2001 when Robert Downey Jr. was arrested while hanging out here. At the time he was on parole for prior drug arrests, having a loaded .357 Magnum revolver in his car, and for breaking into his neighbor's house and passing out in their child's bed.

According to the arrest report, Downey emitted a "strong odor of an alcoholic beverage" and "rambled on without any questions being addressed to him." As the police officer patted him down, Downey repeatedly tried to turn around, so the officer had to grab his arms and press him up against the patrol vehicle. I wish I had a photo of that.
