Re “Demolition proceeds despite City Councilman efforts,” Oct. 31 issue
Not only am I sickened at the thought of one of my favorite houses in Los Angeles now being in rubble, my wife and I, trying to be first time home owners, are equally disturbed and angered at the thought that we could be outbid by couples like the Gradons who misrepresent their desires to protect historically significant homes.
The homes we’ve bid on usually have character and charm, which means details or craftsmanship that is now nearly obsolete. So, reading that the Gradons knowingly lied about their love of these details … holding out hope of reducing them to dust … only disheartens us about people’s true intentions, as well as the city of Los Angeles’ priority of protecting its own history.
The Gradons should be ashamed of themselves and I hope the city of Los Angeles takes action against a developer/real estate investor like Reuven Gradon for hiding the demolition process from the sellers and especially the neighborhood who will hopefully never get see Mr. Gradon’s dream house come to fruition.
