Contest: Where In The World Is Militant Angeleno?

Sing along, will ya?

Doo wa, de-de-doo-day-ooo-wa
Doo wa, de-de-doo-day-ooo-wa
Well he sneaks around the town from Pico to Parthenia
He's an unspecified blogger from Brentwood to Boyle Heights
He'll take you for a ride on his bike in Pasadena
Tell me where in the world is Militant Angeleno?

Steal their Seoul in Koreatown, to an Allesandro alley
From Palms to Magnolia they'll just be all up a tree
He takes the Metro from San Pedro to the San Fernando Valley
Tell me where in the world is Militant Angeleno?

He'll go from Northridge to South Gate, from West Hills to East Los
Compton to Rancho Cucamonga -- and back!

Well he'll mow down your Lawndale and water your Gardena
Then turn on the power of Watts and set a Firestone
From down in Redondo to up in Altadena
Tell me where in the world is Militant Angeleno?
Tell me where in the world is Militant Angeleno?

Alright gumshoes, time to find the Militant! Well, he's hard to find actually, but you can at least find out where he's been. The photo above shows an unspecified location in an unspecified part of town. Your job, gumshoes, it to specify it!

The first person to correctly identify the community/neighborhood in the photo above wins a prize!* Email your answer to: militantangeleno at gmail dot com.

Here's a clue: It may not be in Central Los Angeles!

Now get to work, gumshoes!

*Only emailed entries will be considered. If you have won a contest from the Militant before, you are not eligible (Sorry, Will Campbell and Robert Joyner, gotta give other people a chance this time...). Residents of IA, MD, SD and AR are not eligible (for no reason really, the Militant just picked those states at random...but then again most readers of the Militant Angeleno most likely do not live there anyway).

I remember Carmen Sandiego! That's a really great Southland version, and I really liked the mention of Rancho Cucamonga, since that's where I'm from!

And I do not live in South Dakota, Iowa, Maryland, or Arkansas. I am in Texas, and can't wait to get out of here and back home to SoCal!

You're in Van Nuys, a little west of Sepulveda Blvd., no?

I know where you are. I just saw you a couple hours ago.

Hello Militant Angeleno. The pic looks like the West Adams District like near Grammercy Place north of Adams Blvd.
Perhaps I'm wrong but it certainly does look like the neighborhood where there are a couple of circular streets that curve around a small island or two with green grass and flowers.

Actually, I think the I mispelled the street name, I think it's South Gramercy Park Place or perhaps South Gramercy Park Drive, maybe at West 25th St. or West 26th St. near the Williams Andrew Clark Memorial Library as well as the house where Marvin Gaye was murdered by his dad.

Is that it?
