LAist relies on your reader support.
Your tax-deductible gift today powers our reporters and keeps us independent. We rely on you, our reader, not paywalls to stay funded because we believe important news and information should be freely accessible to all.

After 10 years since it's last bath, LA's most prominent landmark is getting all gussied up. It seems no one heard our pleas to tear it down. We also recently gazed at it lovingly from Runyon Canyon. We've never taken the Hollywoodland stairs but would assume you can see the sign pretty well from there as well.

Curbed LA points out the illegal name changes it has had over it's 80 year history.

LAist is partial to HOLLYWEED.
