I Spy, With My Little Eye...

A reader snapped this photo today, and says:  "Walking by Nick's Uptown, I saw a car in front that said "land surveyor" and there was someone with a neon yellow vest to the same effect. Is that a typical thing one would expect to see?"

Land Surveyors perform various checks, among them ensuring land boundaries, documenting what might be under the earth, and making sure the legal description matches the actual property.  The presence of a surveyor probably shows that Thorek, the new owner of Nick's, isn't wasting any time assessing its latest property acquisition.

We urge you not to waste any time if you'd like to see the Egyptian motif exterior of Nick's preserved.  You can do any or all of four different things to request that the building receive landmark protection, which you can see here.

  1. No doubt Thorek is also monitoring news about them on this site and gearing itself up for action.... they can't seem to deliver quality healthcare (at least from the reviews I've read), like a hospital would seem to be purposed to do, but they can buy buildings, survey them and tear them down in the blink of an eye. Again... hello... where is BPN / Buena Park Neighbors?
