“Bates” Motel

"Bates" Motel

Originally uploaded by mcshan

There’s an old sleazy motel that’s been in the process of being renovated/torn down for forever, that’s caught the attention of some great street artists. This is only one shot, but I’ve gone back to do some photos in color.



  1. Great photo. The motel is across the street from the Silverlake Independent Jewish Community Center. It was the dream/fantasy of former Center Board members that the motel should become part of the Community Center but unfortunately this will not happen. It was a sleasy motel when it was open but the graffiti is actually making the place more interesting. More photos, please.
