Re: NEW STREETWISE--Parkmerced Update

Sorry to go a bit off topic here, but I remember flying down to LA/Hollywood for a week in 1973. At the end of my trip, I was on an express bus to LAX for my return flight back to The City when I viewed a familiar site, what appeared to be a near-exact replica of Parkmerced, complete with the 13-story towers.

I wish I could recall exactly (or even remotely) where in LA this was, but at the time I knew nothing about that city as far as districts, streets, etc. But now I wonder if it was another Metropolitan Life Ins Co housing development, and if so, which one came first?
