    Endangered Places List Includes 1960s SoCal Hotel

    The Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles is on the list of the most endangered historic places in the country.

    The National Trust for Historic Preservation releases the list each year to rally support for protecting the historic sites it sees as endangered by neglect or development.

    The Century Plaza Hotel, which opened in 1966, is the centerpiece of Century City, a district of high-rises in Los Angeles on the former site of a 20th Century Fox movie lot.

    The 19-story hotel has been a popular place to stay for Washington politicos when they visited Los Angeles, earning it the nickname "West Coast White House."

    Other sites on the list include the Utah hangar that housed the Enola Gay B-29 bomber and the Hawaiian town of Lanai City.
