Episode #82: Steaks & Suburbia

Join us as we talk with the irrepressible Myllie Taylor, Boyle Heights native daughter, about her suburban adventures in the newly-formed community of La Mirada in the early 1960s. We’ll also visit with Louis Alvarez, managing partner of the Sycamore Inn in Rancho Cucamonga, a venerable Southland steak house with a nearly 200-year history of hospitality.

We’ll also discuss the upcoming L.A. Historic Neighborhoods Conference, a commercial revamp for the long-vacant upper stories of the Schulte United Building on Broadway, the L.A. Conservancy’s petition to preserve and reuse Parker Center, support from the L.A. Times editorial department for California’s preservation tax break and a report that 20% of new housing in the city over the last fifteen years is Downtown. All this and more as Kim & Richard usher in the week of September 15th, 2014
