Campaign to Save Bukowski’s Home

house.jpg

Bukowski lovers want to save Bukowski’s Hollywood home in Hollywood, at 5124 De Longpre Ave. where in 1969 Buk made the daring decision to leave his day job at the Post Office and try to make it as a writer.

The property has been advertised as a $1.3 million vacant lot on Craigslist. The Cultural Heritage Commission has agreed to put the preservation of Bukowski’s home on the agenda for their September 20th meeting. They will hear a presentation on the property, and will decide whether to proceed with the landmarking process.

Send letters and/or emails of support before September 20 to:
Attn. Mary Martin, 200 N. Spring St., Rm. 620, Los Angeles, CA 90012
(or edgar.garcia@lacity.org)

and thank you

for locating me there at

5124 DeLongpre Avenue

somewhere between

alcoholism and
madness.
