Los Angeles Now Has an Illicit Teahouse With Amazing Views

At dawn yesterday morning, a small group of anonymous artists and their friends quietly celebrated the opening the Griffith Park Teahouse, a tiny wood structure high on Mt. Bell made with the wood of trees that burned in the 2007 Griffith Park Fire. The artists "surreptitiously installed" the 80-square-foot structure on Monday night, carrying prefabricated pieces in and bolting them to an existing concrete foundation (probably from an old utility shack), Carolina Miranda reports at the LA Times. The spot "offers breathtaking views of the Verdugos and the San Gabriels, not to mention the 5 Freeway."
