I am a huge HUGE fan of Grand Park.

Less than 2 years since being restored and revealed to downtown Los Angeles, Grand Park, was the site for the Made in America concert (well, the L.A. one not the Philadelphia one) on August 30 & 31, 2014.

The entire park,which is 3 blocks big, was fenced in and transformed into a concert venue. Even the metro station that stops in the middle of the park was closed.

So this enquiring mind wondered if this would be a nightmare of huge proportions for the city and the park and metro riders and the like. Knowing downtown Los Angeles as I do, I knew there was a spot I could go to to get a “look see” for myself.

Happy surprise. Everything seemed to be under control and well thought out. And I wasn’t the only one who knew they could possibly get unobstructed view of the concert from this spot. And for those who didn’t care if they saw the concert with their eyes, being at the place shown in this photo you surely could hear the concert.
