Home Hotel... on Lost Love Avenue

Room 29

Charlie Chaplin wrote in his first autobiography that he was asked by the philosopher Will Durrant about his conception of beauty. Chaplin replied, "I thought it was an omnipresence of death and loveliness, a smiling sadness that we discern in nature and all things, a mystic communion that the poet feels--an expression of it can be a dustbin with a shaft of sunlight across it, or it can be a rose in the gutter."

Or it can be an SRO hotel still hanging on in Lakeview.
