If I can't make it here or get decent employment soon, I'll just pack up and head back to NYC where the "money" is.
I am the first to admit that LA is not perfect. I hope you can find good employment, find a good social group, and begin to enjoy the city a little more. Good luck. If you MUST head to NYC, it is a nice place.

On Sundays, its reggae sundays in hermosa beach, so I usuaully bike it, grab a sandwich on the way, and then go hit up the pier.

There really is not point for me to mention any of this except, it is really great and I know how much fun you had.
"Wanna meet us at the beach later?"
"Where you guys going?"
"Avenue C"
"Ok, then I guess I'd better bring a volleyball."

One photo shoot I did when I was young and sexy was under the Hermosa pier. Why my grandmother sold her house within a decent stroll of the beach to move up the hill to P.V. is beyond me but I guess gazing at it from her balcony all those years made her long for it. Old people like it a lot up there. She used her paid-for house in S. Redondo basically as a down payment for that big thing they live in on the hill now.

For the record, I liked the old pier better but I'm glad they built it back. I don't know if you've lived there long enough to know what I'm talking about.

I'm at my little Hawaii vacation house right now...I'd walk to the end of the block and jump in the ocean but it's a little windy today. No bike path here
One thing I'll say...the sunsets at South Redondo are the most beautiful in the world, even my father thinks so.

In a couple weeks we'll be back in Pasadena and I'll be rollerblading around the Rose Bowl, Bungalow Heaven and Old Pas with my doggies a' la Cezar Millan. I wish there was a place in the South Bay that allowed dogs on the beach. There is in Long Beach by Bluff Park.

Well, just to add a quick reply, I will say that I have seen the old pier, but I was never around enough to really appreciate. I like the new one. But I can understand your attachment to it.

I love the sunsets here. You should see some of the pics I have accumulated. Gorgeous. Very nice sunsets. Life in the beach cities is nice.
