What you have to say about everything LA!


The Hollywood Sign with Cahuenga Peak in the background has become one of the best-known civic symbols in the world. Built in 1923 as a temporary advertisement for publisher Harry Chandler's Hollywoodland real estate development, it has three times been restored or refurbished--including in 1978 at a cost of $250,000--because it is such a potent symbol of the entertainment industry, LA, and the Southern California way of life.

Besides TPL, Tiffany and Ms. Getty, other partners include the Hollywood Sign Trust, the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy, the Mountains Recreation and Conservation Authority, the Los Angeles Department of Recreation and Parks, the Los Angeles Parks Foundation, and the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
