I’ll have to check that out on an architecture tour of the city!

next time we’re in LA the spouse and I want to see the Richard Neutra (VDL) Research house in Silverlake.

Seems like the New York & Chicago money picked off most of the good stuff before the Gettys got into the game.)

- Its tough been “new” money. All the good stuff has been looted already!

That is fantastic. Visited the reading room at the Huntington twenty years ago and was quite impressed. We’ll try and swing by while visiting family fifteen miles down the freeway. Sunday brunch at the Burger Continental in Pasadena is a must. Congratulations!

Don’t worry: I’m determined to have fun too: Roscoe’s, Disneyland, and oh yeah, we’ll go to the Getty too. (Although the “new” Getty seems to be a building in search of an art collection. Seems like the New York & Chicago money picked off most of the good stuff before the Gettys got into the game.)

My idea museum is the Frick in terms of both a cool building and a really worthwhile collection (heavy on the books, natch), but I do love the setting & design of the “new” Getty.

and I hope you and the family get to enjoy the rest of LA! Its a culinary wonderland! Plus there is the Getty and a host of other museums that get short shrift in comparison with SF and NYC.

I remember a grad school adviser telling me that a fellowship was not just a promise of more productivity, but also time off from the routine and a reward to be enjoyed. Have fun!

I’ll be at a symposium at the Huntington in June 2015, so maybe we’ll cross paths then.
