Manhattan Beach Police Department by Jan Dennis Summary

The small community of Manhattan Beach, located in the county of Los Angeles, is situated on the shore of the Santa Monica Bay. Late in the 1800s, there was little need for law enforcement: this unspoiled terrain along the ocean coastline with its shifting sands, scrub brush, and native wildflowers had yet to be cultivated. By 1912, the sparsely populated area had been incorporated and the city fathers appointed the first peace officer, Fred W. Petway, who was one of three marshals to serve the new town. In 1924, the position of police chief was created with the appointment of Fred Garvin. However, it would be many years before a first-class police department would oversee the safety and security of the growing community. This volume tracks a century of social change and dramatic episodes that challenged a long line of dedicated men and women in law enforcement. Each of these professionals raised the bar on the high standard of police department service that operates in this seaside municipality today.

Manhattan Beach by Jennifer EGAN Summary

Une plongée éblouissante dans un New York peuplé de gangsters, de marins, de scaphandriers, durant la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Quand tout changea entre les hommes et les femmes, entre l'Amérique et le monde. Alors qu'elle a presque douze ans, Anna Kerrigan accompagne son père chez Dexter Styles, un homme qui, comprend-elle, est crucial pour la survie de sa famille. Derrière sa maison, elle aperçoit l'océan, qui l'émerveille autant que le mystère pesant qui lie les deux hommes. Des années plus tard, son père a disparu, et le pays est en guerre. Anna travaille au chantier naval de Brooklyn, où les femmes effectuent des tâches autrefois réservées aux hommes, désormais au front. Elle devient la première femme scaphandrier ; sa mission essentielle, des plus dangereuses, consiste à réparer les navires qui aideront les États- Unis à remporter la guerre. Un soir, dans un club, elle croise de nouveau le chemin de Dexter Styles, et commence à comprendre la complexité de la vie de son père, ainsi que les possibles raisons de sa disparition.

Manhattan Beach by Jan Dennis Summary

In the late 1800s, as surrounding areas grew at a steady pace, Manhattan Beach remained a tranquil, sparely populated area, inhabited only by those willing to challenge its sand dunes. Captured here in over 200 vintage images is the development, expansion, and transitions of this stretch of land called Manhattan Beach and the indelible impressions made by its earliest settlers.Originally the land on which today's city of Manhattan Beach is situated was a broad series of sand dunes stretching from Playa del Rey to Redondo Beach. With the arrival of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in 1888, and the Pacific Electric in 1903, more sightseers and homebuyers were discovering the South Bay. Pictured here is the development of the area, from plank-covered paths, to dirt roads, to the street paving of today; early photographs of downtown development including the first City Hall; local businesses and industries such as Ercole's Caf© and State Bank; and the most vital aspect of any American town: the residents, with names like Cambell, Freeman, Ward, and Merrill.

Anna Kerrigan, nearly twelve years old, accompanies her father to visit Dexter Styles, a man who, she gleans, is crucial to the survival of her father and her family. She is mesmerized by the sea beyond the house and by some charged mystery between the two men. ‎Years later, her father has disappeared and the country is at war. Anna works at the Brooklyn Naval Yard, where women are allowed to hold jobs that once belonged to men, now soldiers abroad. She becomes the first female diver, the most dangerous and exclusive of occupations, repairing the ships that will help America win the war. One evening at a nightclub, she meets Dexter Styles again, and begins to understand the complexity of her father’s life, the reasons he might have vanished. “A magnificent achievement, at once a suspenseful noir intrigue and a transporting work of lyrical beauty and emotional heft” (The Boston Globe), “Egan’s first foray into historical fiction makes you forget you’re reading historical fiction at all” (Elle). Manhattan Beach takes us into a world populated by gangsters, sailors, divers, bankers, and union men in a dazzling, propulsive exploration of a transformative moment in the lives and identities of women and men, of America and the world.

The Manhattan Beach Project by Peter Lefcourt Summary

Barely four years after winning an Oscar, Charlie has sunk into the ranks of Hollywood bottom-feeders -- reduced to living in his nephew's pool house, kiting checks and taking the bus to his weekly Debtors Anonymous meeting, where he meets a mysterious ex-CIA agent who proposes to resuscitate Charlie's foundering career -- in the beyond surreal world of reality TV. Charlie puts his tap shoes on to sell a show about a ruthless Uzbek warlord and his family ("think The Osbournes meets The Sopranos") to a rogue division of ABC, known as ABCD, which operates out of a skunkworks in Manhattan Beach, California, and whose mandate is to develop, under top secret cover like that for the Manhattan Project, extreme reality TV shows to bolster the network's ratings. Warlord becomes a breakout hit and results not only in causing one of America's largest entertainment conglomerates to go into full damage-control mode but also in shifting the balance of power in Central Asia and in proving that in show business it's not over till the mouse sings.

Hermosa Beach by Chris Ann Miller,Jerry Roberts Summary

Unlike most Los Angeles County beach communities, the City of Hermosa Beach owns its own beach. But perhaps more than most coastal Southern California destination cities, Hermosa Beach represents shared experience, detailed on thousands of postcards over the decades. This greater square mile of sand, surf, and sun has conjured cherished memories for fishermen, surfers, and volleyball players as well as jazz fans, diners and tavern celebrants, and simply lovers of the beach who found lifelong or short-term happiness in Hermosa. These postcards recall many bygone landmarks and changing lifestyles and celebrate the Hermosa Beach century (1907-2007).

Ce chapitre des restaurants de Los Angeles est extrait du guide Ulysse sur Los Angeles. Los Angeles est l'une des villes où l'on mange le mieux aux États-Unis. La grande diversité ethnique assure une variété de cuisines qui saura satisfaire n'importe quel visiteur. On y trouve une profusion de bons restaurants asiatiques et mexicains, sans oublier l'omniprésente cuisine italienne, également à son meilleur dans nombre d'établissements. Vu l'importante population française dans la région, Los Angeles propose aussi une bonne offre de restaurants de cuisine française. La cuisine fusion, hautement prisée et recherchée il y a quelques années pour ses ingrédients et ses modes de cuisson allègrement empruntés à différents pays et continents, a fort heureusement modéré ses élans de folie et s'offre désormais en version plus sage. Nous mettrons ici l'accent sur la valeur. Cela ne veut pas dire que tous les restaurants énumérés dans ce chapitre sont bon marché, mais plutôt que nous nous sommes efforcés de retenir des établissements offrant une expérience satisfaisante par rapport au prix demandé, et ce, dans différentes catégories.
