Thanks for sending the link to "Tales." The first time I went to Grand Central Market was in 1967. I'd met the first love of my life at Grad Night at Disneyland - the Catholic night, of course - and she was from Nicaragua. We went to the Market because in those days it was about the only place to buy Central American products. I looked out the Hill St. door and there across the street was Angel's Flight. I grew up in Westchester by the Airport and to me, Sepulveda Blvd. was downtown. But I recognized Angel's Flight from "Ralph Story's Los Angeles" one of the greatest shows in the history of television. I thought next time we come down here I've got to ride that thing. Wow. Angel's Flight. Next time we went it was gone. You just can't put stuff off in L.A.


Hi Tom - I just love what you wrote. So very romantic. Thank you for commenting. Nancy
