This is how Hollywood the neighborhood prepares for the arrival of Hollywood the industry. Tow trucks are making way for scores of limos that will be arriving this afternoon for the Academy Awards. LAist reader Dan Cox sent us before and after photos from Franklin Avenue near Whitley Street this morning. He estimates about 200 cars were towed from one street alone. (Sidenote: that intersection is in rough condition. Looks like Hollywood the neighborhood needs to have some work done.)
