At the end of the ep, the final shootout scene was filmed in the alley/driveway between the Herald-Examiner building and the office building next door - marked Wiggins St. on the Sanborn map.

There's also a totally awesome scene where Ziva shoots two intruders coming in through two different doors at the same time. :D

in the New Yorker Magazine (Oct. 1, 2012).

Pickwick Book Store is mentioned in the article as one of Mr. Talbot's favorite hangouts in Hollywood.

ethereal, I can see in Google Maps a really long railroad tunnel that begins at the intersection of I-5 and CA-14.

Check out this Google Street View link:

http://goo.gl/maps/C0pjA

Amid the maze of freeway ramps and pillars you can spot the tiniest glimpse of what appears to be a tunnel entrance, at a lower level than all of the surrounding roadways and pillars. If you switch to map view and zoom back out, you can follow the path of the rail line tunnel over a mile northward. There is a 45-degree aerial of the other end, but no street view. Metrolink's Antelope Valley Line runs through this tunnel toward Lancaster.

It should be right in the middle of the picture in my link - the base of a pillar in the foreground, with some rust-colored construction stuff next to it on the right, and the tunnel is right behind that.

Edit: Here's a quick zoomed-in screen cap of the Google Street View - a little bit of black circular tunnel entrance with the right side of the concrete surround visible:

Yes, there are. As I mentioned it's even used for Metrolink service. The problem is that the railroad bed is so much lower than everything else right there, that it's impossible to see the tracks from any Street View. And you can't even really make out where the ground drops off down to the track.

Looking at the train icons with Google Maps, the station south of the tunnel is Sylmar/San Fernando. A northbound Metrolink train takes about 20 minutes to go from there through the tunnel to the next station at Newhall. On the 45-degree aerial picture of the north end of the tunnel (near Newhall south of Santa Clarita), you can see an engine right outside the tunnel entrance.

Southern Pacific began Construction of the San Fernando Tunnel on March 27th, 1875 from both the north and south. Construction crews met on July 14th, 1876. The completed bore was 6, 966 feet long and was designated as Tunnel No. 20. At the time, it was the longest railway tunnel in the world.
The Southern Pacific was merged into the Union Pacific system on September 11, 1996.

The track running through the tunnel, which runs from Los Angeles to Sacramento, is known in railroad circles as the San Joaquin Valley Line and is used by Union Pacific for freight service, Metrolink commuter trains and occasionally by Amtrak when rails of the Coast Line are out of service due to a derailment or maintenance.

Cheers,
Jack

Haven't found any vintage shots of 811 S Los Angeles St, but have found that during the '40s and '50s it was home to Kramer Bros, which manufactured Trimfit Hosiery in both NY & LA. Prior tenants included dry-goods wholesaler Isidore Levitt and his Superior Mills (late '30s); manufacturers' agents Granas & Kaufman (early '30s); and during the '20s, the building was occupied by the Columbia Phonograph Co, presumably a branch of the East Coast company that would become Columbia Records. At one time the 800 block of S Los Angeles St was home to a number of hosiery makers. At top is what looks like--but isn't--a noirishly vintage shot of one of the signs on the Beverly Hills Hosiery Co at 801 S Los Angeles, which has been in the neighborhood since at least the mid '50s.

Saved from Dumpster: Amazing map collection makes librarians tingle

http://cdn.cstatic.net/images/gridfs...6/72955291.jpg

A Mount Washington home slated for demolition yields a trove of maps, including one from 1592.The acquisition gives the city library one of the country's top five library map archives.


The discovery that real estate agent Matthew Greenberg made when he stepped inside a Mount Washington cottage will put the Los Angeles Public Library on the map.

Stashed everywhere in the 948-square-foot tear-down were maps. Tens of thousands of maps. Fold-out street maps were stuffed in file cabinets, crammed into cardboard boxes, lined up on closet shelves and jammed into old dairy crates. Wall-size roll-up maps once familiar to schoolchildren were stacked in corners. Old globes were lined in rows atop bookshelves also filled with maps and atlases...

...[LAPL map historian Glen] Creason called the find unbelievable. "I think there are at least a million maps here," he said. "This dwarfs our collection — and we've been collecting for 100 years."...

...Creason was also enthralled by the discovery of several "Mapfox" Los Angeles street guides published in 1944. Creason said in his 32-year library career he had never seen one...
Full LA Times article is HERE, and there's another article at Curbed LA.

Just wow! I can't wait for these to start popping up in LAPL searches!

Not sure when it might have become Florentine Gardens again, but I can tell you that in the early 1980s it was one of a very small number of Hollywood venues in which punk rock bands were allowed to play.

I saw quite a few shows there myself, although not this one from 1981:

Hmm...somewhere along the line it changed address. The sign on the front of the building distinctly says 5955.:shrug: The door from where the guy is coming out of would be 5951 per Google earth. The building at 5959 looks like it could have some history as does 5935. Stay away from 6037...the museum of Death. Google earth is wonderful for cruising!
