Do you know where the World’s Largest Halloween Party was this year? Yes, year after year the World’s Largest Halloween party   has been in West Hollywood, CA. It is considered Los Angeles’ biggest party, an estimated 500,000 people were partying last night in West Hollywood, CA. According to the historians, about 20 years ago the politicians decided to close Santa Monica Blvd down from the Border of Beverly Hills to La Cienega Boulevard. Initially it was due to safety reasons. Now it is just tradition and the party keeps growing. Halloween in WEHO (West Hollywood) is probably the biggest profit day for Restaurants & Pubs. All the revelers eat and drink to the point, that everyone can be assured that they pleasantly over ate and drank!   Photo by Rick Loomis Los Angeles Times  Can you i...

I'm a huge fan of West Hollywood and feel very fortunate to live here (when I'm not in Palm Springs). This week, in preparation for Gay Pride, the city started painting the crosswalks at the intersection of San Vicente Boulevard and Santa Monica Boulevard with bright rainbow colors. The City's website (weho.org) says: "June is recognized as Pride Month  by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community worldwide. Events are held in June to commemorate the anniversary of the Stonewall Rebellion in New York City on June 28, 1969 which most historians consider to be the birth of the modern LGBT civil rights movement" The City of West Hollywood will once again celebrate LGBT arts and culture with its annual festival throughout June.   Pictures courtsey of The West Hollywood Pa...

High-end condos in the City of West Hollywood continued to achieve high prices despite a depressed Real Estate market in 2011. It was all about the views .....

That's over $1400 per sq ft!   The next highest sales were also recorded at Sierra Towers: $2,850,000 ... $2,750,000 ... $2,350,000 ... $2,175,000 ... $2,000,000.

825 North Kings Rd, #15, West Hollywood, CA 90069 – 2br/2.5ba, Roughly 1590 sq ft – List: $734,900/Sale: $734,900 – Days on Market – 4 I have been in love with this Lorcan O’ Herlihy original for quite some time. If you live in or know the West Hollywood area well, most people are familiar with this iconic and in my opinion, one of the most architecturally significant buildings in the city. Lorcan has a knack for creating unique design aesthetics that literally pop out at you when you drive by. When Lorcan makes his presence known on your street, the area is automatically catapulted to another level. I would say that this particular building is the crown jewel of his work. With that said, it gives me great pleasure to announce Rich Kids latest sale at 825 North Kings, Unit 15. Nothing i...
