ANSWER: There were a million landmarks to tell you that the camera was pointed north from the City Hall tower. In the foreground are the top of the Federal Building and the Hollywood-Santa Ana Freeway. Off to the right are the clump of trees that is the Plaza and beyond it the Post Office Terminal Annex. At the extreme left N Broadway heads toward the tree-covered hills of Elysian Park.
KNOW YOUR CITY, NO.198 -- How lazy can you get? Sure, this is a bird's-eye view of the city. Sure, it was shot from the City Hall tower. All you have to figure out is which way camera was pointing. Easy? Some will miss. See Page 20, Part 1A.
