This week, we're a little light on new real estate inventory, but Manhattan Beach does have a new piece of public art to celebrate. 

"Light Gate" is the name of the sculpture now situated right outside City Hall at 1400 Highland.

Artists Mags Harries and Lajos Héder (pictured) designed Light Gate, and attended a ribbon cutting this week.

As you move around the sculpture, it will shift unexpectedly from transparency, to prismatic refraction, to mirror reflection."

Catch it some late afternoon. Or at sunset. Twice a year (Jan. 27 and Nov. 14), the sun will set…

You won't see any hint…

The blizzard Santa Ana winds – ruining our Winter.

It's enough to make you want to go shovel the walk again take a week off and ski.

Yes, the MB schools are off for the next week, and while that sometimes puts a damper on real estate activity, not so this weekend. Take a look at the new options. 

Oh, and enjoy Ski Week. It's our next-to-last here in MB. After 2016, the district is shelving Ski Week in favor of ending school sooner for Summer.

Summer, Winter... How can you tell the difference?

We have to begin today by saying how proud we are to be part of a Manhattan Beach community that stands together in support of a family which experienced a disturbing crime.

A nearly impromptu candlelight vigil on Friday night drew hundreds of people in a show of solidarity with the Clinton family.

Their home was the target of arson midweek, with the family fearing that the attack could be a hate crime. Local, state and federal authorities are investigating, and have not ruled that out.

Perhaps most important was the way that Manhattan Beach turned out to show the Clinton family that they are welcome and loved, and that there is no tolerance at all for what happened to them. It was an inspiring turn in a story that had seemed so incredible and wrong.…
