The Beach Boys Historical Monument

(Spot the tourist)

In order to add another traffic jam and underused rail line to the greater Los Angeles metroplex, the home of the Wilson family of Hawthorne, California (and a few others, albeit likely less prodigious) had to be demolished. Fortunately since 2005 the site has been commemorated by an impressive monument on the vacant side of 119th Street.
