Broken: Rite Aid shirts

ShirtWill Andre points out:

These shirts are on sale at a Rite Aid in Studio City, CALIFORNIA. However, the shirts say:

“Team USA, Studio City, New York”

I’m not aware of the existence of a Studio City in New York, so I don’t think they were simply delivered to the wrong store on the other side of the country. The shirts should say "Studio City, California."


_@_v - only "studio city" i can think of in new york are the old astoria film studios...

_@_v - mebbe they meant "radio city"...

_@_v - and first

Studio City, Los Angeles, California

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Studio City is a 4 square-mile district in the San Fernando Valley within the city of Los Angeles, California. It is bounded roughly by Ethel Avenue to the west, the U.S. Route 101 to the north and east, and Mulholland Drive and Santa Monica Mountains to the south.

Studio City earned its name in the 1920s when Mack Sennett moved his studios from a neighborhood known as Edendale (near Echo Park) to a property near Colfax Avenue and Ventura Boulevard. His soundstages, Mack Sennett Studios, were later renamed Republic Pictures Studio, MTM Enterprises Studios and CBS Studio Center.

The district is served by a Los Angeles Public Library branch.[2] A farmers market is held each Sunday on Ventura Place.

In September 2004, Britney Spears married Kevin Federline in a private house in Studio City.

Bonnie Lee Bakley, wife of actor Robert Blake, was found murdered near Vitello's Restaurant on Tujunga Avenue in Studio City in May 2001.

On March 4, 1952, actor Ronald Reagan married Nancy Davis at the Little Brown Church in Studio City.


Studio City is connected to Los Angeles's vast network of freeways by the 101. Access to other parts of the city is also provided by Laurel Canyon Boulevard, Coldwater Canyon Avenue, and Ventura/Cahuenga Boulevards. Its main thoroughfare is Ventura Boulevard, where the bulk of its commercial activity resides.

The area, like many parts of L.A., has seen a great deal of tear-down building, with large apartments replacing homes or smaller dated apartments along major crossfares. Some think that traffic and parking problems continue to worsen as a result. Residents have supported the local golf and tennis facility, which is in danger of being displaced by a senior residential complex. A few blocks over, the historic Sportsman Lodge hotel/restaurant is dealing with similar issues.

Residents "south of the boulevard" are insulated from the non-stop development and have seen their home values soar in recent years. Some of the area's small-town charm certainly has faded in recent years, but Studio City remains a vibrant and desirable place to call home for Angelinos.

Tujunga Avenue, a north-south street, also features charming shops and some restaurants.



According to the 2000 San Fernando Valley Almanac[5], Studio City has a population of 25,841 and 13,086 households. The median home price is $464,000. The population is 84% white, with Hispanics at 8%, African American at 3% and Asian American at 5%.

Studio City, similar to nearby Sherman Oaks and North Hollywood, became known for having a large Jewish population in the 1950s. The area still has a large Jewish presence (like Sherman Oaks but unlike contemporary North Hollywood) but is no longer as heavily Jewish as it was even as recently as the 1980s. Many Russians have moved into the area in recent years, and the boom in apartment complexes has brought a multi-ethnic feel to the city that wasn't there a few decades back. True to the city's name, many residents work in film, television and media.

The Valley's reputation for subpar dining doesn't extend to Studio City. Like its neighbor Sherman Oaks, the city has seen a surge in restaurants of note in past decades. The east end of Studio City's piece of Ventura Boulevard is known to diners as Sushi Row, with an usually high concentration of good-quality raw fish places (even for L.A.) Midtown, there is Art's Deli, a local institution for bagels and eggs. The west end has Pinot (part of the Patina group) and the Bistro Gardens. There are relatively few fast-food restaurants.

The area is served by two publications with local content. The Studio City Sun (part of a regional chain) covers issues such as development and traffic, and keeps up with local celebrities. Studio City Lifestyle is an advertiser-friendly magazine partial to profiles and pieces on merchants. Many are critical of the Los Angeles Times nor the Los Angeles Daily News for not covering the area.

I'm thinking it's the "wrong" location for exotic-ness (is that a word?). They call hot dogs frankfurters in Vienna, and they call them Vienna Sausages in Frankfurt. Would Frankfurtians (is that a word?) call hot dogs, frankfurters? Probably not.

There is a studio city in New Orleans, right past Audobon Park. If you head on the left side of the street on Magazine and take a sharp right directly before the divided street turns into a double lane you'll run right into it.
