As of 9:45 a.m. PST the obelisk marking the old silent movie studios on Glendale Blvd. (at the 2 freeway entrance) was reported to be standing. According to RJ, at the demolition site there's:
A mound of red bricks, a tree toppled over on its side, big ripped out pieces of brick and concrete walls half up -- but the obelisk, at least for the moment, is still standing there like the last soldier standing on this neutered landscape. Hope somebody is watching out for it -- it's hard to say whether the demolitionists are taking care of it (no wall around the thing) or just that it's off to the periphery of their work.
Chicken Corner hopes the destruction crews left the marker standing on purpose.
