Notes on the Geography of The Western United States: Los Angeles 2: Photo 2
In September 2004, the superintendent of schools announced that most of the building would be destroyed but that the facade would be saved and that the Cocoanut Grove nightclub, restored to its original, Moorish style, would become the school auditorium. Predictably, his announcement did not settle the matter: some groups continued to press for the buildings complete demolition; others, for saving more or all of it. In the event, complete demolition began in September, 2005. An ethereal echo was heard a few months later. It was called "Last Looks: The Ambassador Hotel," and it was a photo exhibition at the City Hall. The new school opened in 2010 as the Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools. Price tag: $578 million.
