Hidden Hot Spots in Watts.

In South Central, there is a landmark that is a symbol of Los Angeles.

This is called "Watts Tower". 

An Italian guy, Simon Rodia, made these towers all by himself in 33 years.

I felt a very strong passion the first time I saw this and I came back for a tour. I was very glad to see the inside of the tower and excited to find out why he made this.

1727 East 107th Street
Los Angeles, CA 90002

He used only recycled junk such as dishes, pipes, tile and glass with no special equipment.

There are many hearts you can find and he used many cute colors such as pink, yellow and peppermint green.

This tower is actually in the shape of something... 

When you stand at this point you become the captain of a ship to Italy.

*You must join their tour to see inside of the tower. Please make sure of the tour schedule with this site.
