KPCC asks: What are the sounds unique to Rancho Park?

Every neighborhood has a soundscape, a mélange of musical and sometimes nonmusical noises all its own. Whether it's music, birds, car horns or ice cream trucks, KPCC's Take Two morning show wants to feature those sounds (good and bad) that provide a soundtrack to your every day. 

We have created a short set of questions and a way to record and upload audio.

Unfortunately, I went online and read about Lenny's Deli (which used to be in Pacific Palisades, but is now closed)...

and it did not sound too swell.  I am not much of a deli person but as a longtime Rancho Park resident I will always miss Junior's.  It doesn't sound like Lenny's is going to be a worthy replacement.  If Junior's had to go, how I wish Porto's had taken its place.

Google it and see what you think.

And I am really unhappy about the new Century City parking fees.  Grrrr!

I bought the recliner chair in my den from La-Z-Boy and my television from Ken Crane. Another change for Rancho Park.

I hear Pico Blvd is getting a new look?

There is talk about putting in median at overland and pico. Anyone else hear of this? Pico blvd does need to be beautified. Side walks are in need of replacement,etc. It is time the area looked more presentable. Your thoughts?  I wish the blvd looked more like Montana ave in Santa Monica. Just my opinion.
