Speaking of building something, the fat cats at Dreamworks SKG have their original campus in a little industrial park in Glendale, down the street from Disney Imagineering. Why they chose such a neighborhood can be explained by Jeffrey Katzenberg's desire to "stick it in the eye" of former Disney head Michael Eisner.
What these elitists failed to foresee was how much they would hate driving past the tiny independent businesses and low income housing to get to work.
Their solution? pay off local politicians to have an extension of the freeway off ramp built, complete with wide lanes t& bridge over the LA River that puts them at the front door of their studio.
Meanwhile surrounding streets remain tiny & filled with pot holes.
