The best place to experience the night blooming Jasmine is in Mt Washington in the summer.

I lived in LA for 38 years, moved there in 1967 from PA with my family as a teenager, and in 2005 I moved with my wife to Plano TX. I always used to think the real essence of what LA was when it was great to live there was something already consigned to the past, even 40 years ago. So I would always visit anyplace in LA and try to imagine what it was really like decades before I moved there, like in "LA Confidential", or even to push it back further in the past, before the automobile and the flood of midwest migrants from the Great Depression. So for example when I would go to the beach 40+ years ago, I would always drive further out and go to Zuma before it was popular or crowded. That was how I wanted to try to appreciate the magic of what LA was before the flood of humanity found it. During my 38 years the growth was explosive, to the point where it is strangled today. When in college and for a few years afterwards I worked in the studios, theaters, TV studios in IATSE, NABET, etc. in the crafts. So I tried to appreciate what the studios were like decades before as well when I worked there. And that for me is the ugly, made up side of Los Angeles, I don't believe that aspect of LA ever had a Golden Age.
