New Feature: The BEST of Tropico Station

I've created a new permanent page called The BEST of Tropico Station. If you're new to the site, start here.

A small sample of the "Best Of":

My all-time favorite post: stills from the Glendale locations featured in Crime Wave, an obscure 1952 film noir filmed almost entirely on the mean streets of downtown Glendale, alongside new photographs I took of the same locations today.

Why the heck is one of our main streets named "Chevy Chase"? Who or what is Chevy Chase? Is it the same as the comedian?

The awesomely spooky abandoned old LA Zoo in Griffith Park is absolutely worth visiting! Photos and directions:

Another of my all-time favorite posts: I was asked to help explore and identify a mysterious abandoned settlement/camp in the Verdugos.
The follow up post, where I solve the mystery thanks to Glendale's awesomely knowledgeable Special Collections librarian:

Directions to prominent early Glendalian Leslie Brand's eerie hidden cemetery in Brand Park. He's buried under a giant stone pyramid!
