Description
George DiCaprio showing off his green t-shirt in front of the "Not a Cornfield" corn field, which is located just north of Chinatown and within half a mile from El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument. Not a Cornfield, a 32-acre project created by artist Lauren Bon, transformed an industrial brownfield into a cornfield for one agricultural cycle. The City of Los Angeles dedicated this field, also known as Southern Pacific's Cornfield Yard, as Cultural Monument #82 for its role as the Southern Pacific's River Station railroad yard. As of 2006, this location became known as Los Angeles State Historic Park. George Dicaprio is an American comic book writer, editor, and major west coast underground comic book distributor. His son is American actor, Leonardo DiCaprio. Photo dated: September 25, 2005.
