Bleacher Bum Looking for Fun

Where can I find old bleachers in Los Angeles?

Not to buy (unless their really cheap). I just want to take some photos of old, heavily used bleachers. Anyone? This is the weirdest thing I ever asked you for, I think...

I think that any old high school worth their... age will have the worn-out bleachers you're looking for. (I'm distinctly thinking of the one I went to, in an heavily-Chinese suburb of L.A., but any ol' LAUSD school would do!)

Yeah, I was just thinking of the Eagle Rock High School bleachers, but I don't know if you'd have to jump over fences to get to them (here's an old photo from when I was there).

Ask the film board, they know all kinds of locations and the people to contact to get permission to shoot them. I have always found them helpful even when I didn't need to pay for permits and all that other stuff they do. I assume that in LA of all places they are probably well organized and can point you in the right direction.

The Stoner Recreation Area (lol) in West L.A. has some really crummy old bleachers, and it's a public park, so no fence-hopping. Other public parks with baseball fields might fit the bill too, although some have newer metal bleachers.
