Pico/Robertson Neighborhood on Father’s Day [VIDEO]

Father’s Day is coming up June 20.
I stood at the corner on Pico in front of Elat Market, with the mission of finding out what, if anything, people had to say about their dads.

The responses I got ranged from the lighthearted and cute - a little girl mumbling, “We make hot dogs at the beach!” to a woman who’s father had died remembering his reassurances.
Most of the people I met were Jewish, including the Sterman couple who were my age (23) except married and out here on their honeymoon, before going back to NYC to each start med school.  I met a doctor, an actor, college students, and two elderly women who were neighbors and best friends.

The last woman in the video is not Jewish - she’s a nurse from Oklahoma, who might send her father a card and money, but not because he wants money to spend, but instead, in his nineties, he “just likes to look at it.”
