VINTAGE LA: Davy Jones’ The Street

A rare photo of Davy Jones of the Monkees in front of The Street in 1970. Inspired by the street markets of New York, Davy founded this indoor market that featured small shops by local artisans. Unfortunately, The Street was a short-lived venture.  Other incarnations of this building have been infamous nightclubs such as the Factory, Studio One, The Carousel and Luna Park.

A nine-story tall hotel/retail complex is scheduled for construction on this site.

I don’t mind nostalgia, but these “contributions” are a joke. Crap writing, rehashed trivia… and all for the sole purpose of promoting the author.

“Infamous” Studio One? Sorry but Studio One was classy and with wall-to-wall cuties. Moreover, The Backlot Night Club on the La Peer side of the building had great acts. I saw Anita O’Day, Charles Pierce and Wayland Flowers and Madame perform there. And how is the traffic going to be handles if/when that huge hotel/retail complex is built?
