Arrests in Baltimore for illegal guns often lead to dropped charges or little jail time


By Alison SIngh Gee Seventeen years ago, New Yorker Peter Gargagliano found his Los Angeles dream: in an apartment in a cool, 1930s Streamline Moderne building in Koreatown. It was small -- about 1,000-square feet -- but it came with a terrace that had sweeping views all the way to downtown. Gargagliano, then a production assistant making $260 a week, knew two essential things about his new home: He loved it, and it was rent-controlled. Flash forward. Gargagliano, a successful production designer, was sharing the apartment with his girlfriend, illustrator Masha D'yans. Though they needed more space and could afford to move into a larger apartment, they chose not to leave. Instead, they have turned the expansive terrace into a series of outdoor living spaces.
