A Los Angeles gay landmark buttons up

WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — The infamous San Vicente Inn here, long operated as a clothing-optional, men-only motel with a just-smoke-it drug policy, in many ways epitomizes this city’s past as a live-and-let-live gay ghetto.

It also sums up West Hollywood’s rapidly gentrifying, more inclusive future. A new owner, the boutique hotelier Jeff Klein, plans to spend $30 million to transform the 29-room motel into a high-end auberge. Straight people welcome.

Berlin is a phoenix reinventing itself. Decades of war and oppression are being replaced by trendy boutiques, sidewalk cafes, retail-shopping areas, and renovated historical monuments and museums.

Since World War II much of this German capital was in ruins after intensive bombing. Then, for more than 28 years, it was a divided city with a barbed-wire fence erected under the cover of night, eventually turning into a permanent concrete barrier. When the wall fell, the rush of freedom and new hope was almost inexpressible.
