<b>Briefly:</b><b> Crossroads of the World</b> has been called America’s first outdoor shopping mall. Located on Sunset Boulevard and Las Palmas in Los Angeles, the mall features a central building designed to resemble an ocean liner surrounded by a small village of cottage-style bungalows. It was designed by <b>Robert V. Derrah</b> and built in 1936.
Once a busy shopping center, the Crossroads now hosts private offices, primarily for the entertainment industry. It has been used for location shooting in many films, including<i> L.A. Confidential</i> and <i>The Adventures of Ford Fairlane</i>, in TV shows including <i>Dragnet</i> and <i>Remington Steele</i>, and in commercials by McDonald’s, Ford and Mattel. A reproduction of Crossroads’ iconic tower and spinning globe can be seen just inside the entrance to Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World in Florida.
Today, Crossroads is the creative home of a variety of music publishers and producers, television and film script writers, film and recording companies, novelists, costume designers, publicists and casting agencies-Wikipedia
