Here's a very fine old building at Beverly Boulevard & N. Laurel Avenue.
This was my very first gym in Los Angeles (located on the second floor).
It had dark wood, tract lighting, wooden rafters, & exposed brick. -very
Here's a photograph I took in 1984...back then it was known as the L.A. Body & Health Club. (no palm trees in front yet)
I just happened across this gym while walking down Beverly Blvd.
It was a good choice...not much attitude...and not very busy during the day.
Here's a contemporary view. The second floor is still a gym....an Easton's now.
above: It looks like the printing shop is still there, minus the blade sign. (visible in my 1984 view)
The store fronts along the side street (Laurel Avenue) remain empty as they were 30 years ago!
-kinda sad isn't it? (well, I guess the two with cross braces are part of the printing shop)
-view along Laurel Ave. looking south towards Beverly Blvd.
The back of the building is exposed brick. The fire escape and 2nd floor windows all had great views of the Hollywood Hills.
-there was a hot tub on the roof.
-a couple of the empty ground floor spaces....I'd love to see inside.
Hmm...I wonder if there's a basement? (I never thought about that before)
