Sydney Bristow’s Apartment

img_1962.jpgAlthough I am not a big Alias fan – never seen an episode, actually – I know most of America was pretty obsessed with it.  And I do love me some Jennifer Garner.  So when I found the address of Sydney’s Bristow’s apartment in my fave stalking book, I, of course, had to stalk it.

img_1963.jpgSydney Bristow lived in a very cute Spanish style apartment building called the El Cadiz in Hollywood.  It was built in 1936 and definitely evokes a feeling of Old Hollywood.  The El Cadiz is also a City of Los Angeles declared Historic-Cultural Monument. 

Now that I have stalked Alias, I think I am going to have to go rent me the first season on DVD, so I can see what all the fuss is about.  🙂

Until next time, Happy Stalking!  🙂

Stalk It:  Sydney Bristow lived in the El Cadiz apartments located at 1731 N. Sycamore Avenue in Hollywood, just a half a block north of Hollywood Boulevard and a few short blocks from the Hollywood and Highland Center.  In 1970, Janis Joplin died of a drug overdose just a half a block from the El Cadiz at the Highland Gardens Hotel, which can be found at 7047 Franklin Avenue.

    I am not an Alias fan, but I am a fan of the olf Hollywood Courtyard buildings. (Yes, if you were to venture behind that closed gate, you would find yourself in quaint Andalusian style courtyard with niches and terraces for many of the units.)

    A bit of extra trivia: the building was apparently declared a landmark after it was bought by the Church of Scientology. Many of the residents or historians feared they might have plans to tear it down and build, as they are prime real estate holders in the area. Now this lovely building is preserved.
