Crossroads of the World - Hollywood, CA
My first reaction to this place was, cool, now what in the world is it?
First line from Wikipedia:
Designed by Robert V. Derrah and built in 1936, the Crossroads of the World has been called America's first outdoor shopping mall. Located on Sunset Boulevard and Las Palmas in Los Angeles, the mall features a central building designed to resemble an ocean liner surrounded by a small village of cottage-style bungalows.
