Photo: Diane Edwardson, August 12, 2009. The downslope lot (from the property line marker) is on Riverside Drive. It showed up in The Eastsider yesterday. (Click on photo to enlarge.)
Google Maps incorrectly shows Silver Lake Court going to the rear of this Riverside Drive lot. Silver Lake Court is an unpaved "paper" street that is nowhere near this lot.
The Red Car Property is upslope from the property line marker. This section of hillside between Adelbert and Riverside Drive is within a USGS identified landslide zone. The loose soil and northeast facing slope proved ideal habitat for the native California Black Walnuts (a protected tree in the City of Los Angeles) which have completely taken over the hillside.
