Where was I?

Cateogry: History Quiz
Posted by: Editor on Wednesday, June 15, 2016

Submit Answers in Comments (below). Answers will not be revealed until a winner is selected.

Larry thought about blurring my sign (The Granada) to make my location difficult for you, but kind soul that he is, he was determined to help you in this week’s quiz. My original owners (the Ringling’s) had me built as an apartment building. Right before I was demolished a few years back, Larry stopped by then, out of respect, to take some pictures of me before I was knocked down. Your task is to determine the street’s name right in front of my entrance - Where was I?
