Recently, my wife and I journeyed to the Sherman Oaks Galleria looking for furniture. Wow! What an experience!
As soon as you leave Burbank, you enter into a totally third-world, decrepit part of North Hollywood. The streets are in dire need of repair, with rundown buildings and homeless derelicts all over the place.
Nearing Sherman Oaks, the scene got better, but wait — you couldn’t move. The traffic was horrendous, and it was like Times Square at the Galleria. It was a real nightmare.
