  • A type of aircraft that derives both lift and propulsion from one or two sets of horizontally revolving overhead rotors. It is capable of moving vertically and horizontally, the direction of motion being controlled by the pitch of the rotor blades

LAPD at Scene of Sylvan Street Shooting, 10.29.09
LAPD at Scene of Sylvan Street Shooting, 10.29.09
I woke up on this clear & cool October morning in North Hollywood to the roar of helicopters overheard and the frightening news that two men had been shot an hour earlier at Adat Yeshurun Valley Sephardic Synagogue on the usually peaceful Sylvan Street, which is no more than 2 blocks from my home in North Hollywood. It's a temple & school in the middle of a residential neighborhood- the only one I've known like it - where we've voted on some elections, and which I pass frequently on my daily bike rides/ Fortunately, the two men who were shot - arriving before 7 a.m. for early morning minion service - were wounded in the legs, and both were in good shape. But though one man was apprehended, he was without a gun, and so it wasn't certain if he was the shooter - and a mass search for the actual shooter and his gun commenced throughout these streets of our pacific neighborhood. So after watching the news coverage for a little while and calling my mother in Chicago to tell her we were okay in case she heard about this on the news (she did, on CNN), I jumped on my bicycle and tried to ride to the scene. But the entire perimeter was restricted, with all kinds of cops blocking people from getting too close to what was still an active crime scene. So I rode around to the intersection of Whitsett & Sylvan - which has long been the entrance to my shortcut to evade busy streets in favor of quiet arboreal ones - and there was a vast phalanx of LAPD cars & trucks, fire-engines, and cordoned off behind yellow plastic barriers, a huge gaggle of press - camera-men, sound-men, TV trucks with their satellite towers, photographers, reporters some familiar-faced newsmen from local stations and more. I joined them as if I belonged, because to this neighborhood I do belong, and nobody looked twice at me. And to this assemblage of microphones came LAPD Deputy Chief Michel Moore and other LAPD officials to make statements and answer questions. This shot shows Chief Moore reflecting on the best way to answer a complex question, as I focused beyond him, towards the synagogue, usually glowing in the bright and abundant daily sunshine but now shrouded by the shadows of news and police helicopters circling overhead and the darkness of what could only be construed as a hate crime.

Arlen Ness
His first customs were made in the garage of his home in San Leandro, California, but by the early 1970's he had moved to a storefront on East 14th Street. Ness was recognized for his unique painting style and for developing a line of custom motorcycle parts. His popularity grew as he built new custom bikes and then had those displayed on the bike show circuit and featured in motorcycle magazines. After more than three decades of custom bike building and developing his business to the point that it supports a several hundred page parts catalogue, Arlen Ness, Inc. moved to a Dublin, California facility that included a museum featuring more than 40 of his custom motorcycles. The museum displays his famous Untouchable, the twin motor Two Bad, the antique inspired Ness-Tique, Blower Bike, the Italian sports car inspired Ferrari Bike, the '57 Chevy sports car inspired Ness-Stalgia, the Bugatti-like Smooth-Ness, the Discovery Channel's Biker Build-Off bike Top Banana, and his jet powered Mach Ness. The Mach Ness is a motorcycle Ness built in 2005, inspired by Jay Leno’s turbine-powered bike, that incorporates a jet powered helicopter engine as its power plant. The design, concept, paint, and graphics were created by Carl Brouhardand the hand-made aluminum body work was by Bob Monroe. Arlen has received recognition and awards including Builder of the Year, induction into the Motorcycle Hall of Fame and Lifetime Achievement Awards. His son, Cory Ness, has worked with Arlen for more than 30 years, and now runs the day to day business operations at Arlen Ness, Inc. Cory has himself been recognized as a top custom bike builder and even defeated his father in a 2004 episode of The Great Biker Build-Off. Carrying on the family tradition to a third generation, Cory's son, Zach, built several beautiful high end customs before finishing high school in 2006. Ness received a patent for the Big Shot, a method of altering the motorcycles fuel injection system, is used to personalize a motorcycle's performance.
