Sharply terminated by the Los Angeles River flood channel and Interstate 5, Beacon Hill stands as the last eastward gasp of a 50-mile-long mountain range—the Santa Monicas. Back in the early 20th Century it served a utilitarian purpose as the site of an illuminated beacon for Grand Central Airport in Glendale. Today it presides over flatlands overrun by industrial buildings.
