Elysian Park

He takes her on dates to Elysian Park, and that really connects to the LA River. I walk in Griffith Park all the time. Part of the film was me trying to make LA into a real character, a real place that makes geographic sense.  So if your girl is hanging out down at the Biltmore hotel, where are you going to take her for a quick walk? Elysian Park. And it’s gorgeous with the Eucalyptus trees and the light ––and it was pretty damn cheap.
