In Los Angeles Magazine

CoverThis month's Los Angeles Magazine admires Rick Caruso, creator of The Grove and upcoming shopping malls in Glendale and Arcadia, praised like this in editor Kit Rachlis' letter: "No one in recent memory has reshaped the city the way Rick Caruso has. The billionaire, possible mayoral candidate and mall developer extraordinaire constructed the enormously successful Grove in the middle of the Fairfax District, which last year attracted more visitors than Disneyland. He has two more major projects in the works, and all are paeans to the past — a sentimentalized small-town past that most Angelenos have never experienced but long for nonetheless." The July issue also has staff recommendations of bars and cocktails, Tom Carson's review of The Reagan Diaries, John Powers on the ways writers from other places have mischaracterized L.A. and a Jesse Katz piece on cover doll Claire Danes.
