Rossmore Avenue & Hancock Park environs

For the next few days, you will be seeing pictures of the Hancock Park area, which includes the Los Angeles Country Club. That is the City's most exclusive club.

This is a photo of the apartment building where Marilyn Monroe stayed, when visiting President John Kennedy. The Mauritania building was built in 1934 for Jack Haley, the Tin Man in the Wizard of Oz movie. The address is 520 N. Rossmore Ave. As of yesterday, February 4, 2009, the current owner is still trying to rent an apartment in that complex. See Art Deco Apartments. These are some of the most expensive units in Los Angeles.
