It looks harmless. Even boring. Just an office building, with names of production companies, which don’t even leave much impact to the average tourist.
Until they know the story behind the street.
8439 Sunset Boulevard, now called Piazze del Sol, used to be the site of Hollywood’s most exclusive brothel, called “House of Francis.” People would go here for a different kind of networking, and whatever happened behind its doors stayed behind those doors.
Today there are still brothels, but they are typically held in private houses.
