As cities all over the world open up, Beverly Hills and Rodeo Drive are welcoming back visitors as part of a Summer ‘21 travel phenomenon. 90210, the legendary zip code and “the street of dreams” are beloved both by residents and by those that jet in for a vacation. In this episode, hear from those in the know on how Beverly Hills maintains its captivating allure, and the backstory on its signature high style.
Cosgrave also explores the moving backstory to the luxury houses and hotels of Hollywood’s Golden Era. She talks with Royal Kennedy Rodgers and Kathy Vance, producers and directors of the PBS documentary “Hollywood’s Architect: The Paul R. Williams Story,” about the celebrated African American “architect to the stars”, who created Beverly Hills style at a time when he was not welcome in white neighborhoods. Kathy Gohari, President of the Rodeo Drive Committee, explains why Rodeo Drive is an international destination that still feels like a village, where people are proud of the City’s history and heritage.
