AMAZING INSTAGRAM PHOTOS TAKEN OF THE BENDIX SIGN IN DTLA’S FASHION DISTRICT

IMG_0503To say I am obsessed with the Bendix sign that reigns over the Fashion District in Downtown Los Angeles is an understatement.  The neon sign sits atop the 12-story Bendix Building at Maple Avenue and 12th Street.  The sign measures 150 feet tall.  The letter “B” at the top is 25 feet high and 16 feet wide.  The sign was dark for many years, but was relighted back in 2003.

The other day two amazing photos taken of the sign popped up on my Instagram account.

The first one was taken by gqthe1st.  He climbed the sign and took the shot looking down the center from the “B.”

The other shot was taken by infiniteshots.  He took the photo looking up the sign, from the “X.”

I don’t know how they got up there, but their photos are awesome.  Click on their names for links back to their Instagram accounts.
