Chandelier Tree - Stupid Vacations

Fun Lights – Enjoyed by the whole neighborhood

So I was in the San Fernando Valley and I had stopped in Griffith Park to figure out what I was going to do next on this fine afternoon. I really didn’t have a plan but I knew I wanted to see something. So I looked up land marks on my trusty smartphone and presto the chandelier tree was only 2 miles away. Well I’m going to see this I said. I don’t have a clue as to what it is, but I will find out! I drove to where the chandelier tree and found it was on a side street off Los Feliz. It was on the corner of a dead end side street. I went up the street turned around came back and parked in the red zone right next to the chandelier tree. It was interesting a big sycamore tree with lots and lots of chandeliers gracing the branches. As it was daytime so the chandeliers weren’t lit up just yet. The is a little parking meter in front of the tree. It is an ornate parking meter for sure. The parking meter said donations. I’m sure this guy is using the donations to pay for his electricity so I dropped a few coins immediately. Wow what an interesting idea! Well as I looked up and and there was a man sitting on the porch he said howdy I said howdy and we chatted a little.  Yes it was his house his name was Adam Tenenbaum. He put the tree up about 7 years ago and it’s been a local hit. We chatted about some other things and he said well in about 20 minutes I’ll turn it on turn on the lights for you and I said that’d be great I said it’ll make you a much better picture because I’m going to put the stuff on Stupidvacations.com.  Without asking, Adam went in and turned on the lights. I took a few more pictures I thanked him, and went on my way. Have you seen it the chandelier tree? if you live in Los Angeles and you are in the area come by in the evening and see it when its lit.
