I suspect that everyone has some attachment to their neighborhood. If you live in the Rive Gauche, Beverly Hills, The Richmond District, Gramercy Park - you have world class amenities. I sometimes envy people living in those barrios.
But somehow after living on my little perch on the edge of Mt. Washington in Los Angeles, for over a quarter century now, my 'hood has become endearing and special to me. Never mind that I have to climb 90 steps to get in and out of my place, or that the cat is perpetually unhappy (she misses me). Our little treehouse. secluded as it is, 300 feet above the surrounding hillside, allows me some of the best views around, and I share them here with you.
