Jimmy is a powerhouse. Voyage L.A. did an interview with him recently, you can read the whole thing here, but I’m going to leave you with my favorite quote:

My legs are pumping, face in my wind, the sun shining down upon rays of pure joy and adrenalin. 10 minutes later I’m at Hollywood and Wilcox and wouldn’t you know it: a third fucking bus and I was 10 minutes early. I had just taken the bicycle red pill.

The Spirit of Bimini Article

An exterior view of the Bimini Hot Springs building, circa 1920. From Wikipedia.

A resident of the L.A Eco-Village wrote this article in 2001: The Spirit of Bimini.  Bimini Place is the street where we are located, and it was named after a chain of islands in the Bahamas where Juan Ponce de Leon once searched for the fountain of youth. Well, to be more accurate, it was named after the Bimini Baths, a bathhouse with natural hot springs that was operated here in the 1920’s.

The article is written in the first person, as if the place where telling its story. It’s an interesting read. Thanks to T.H. Culhane for having been part of our history.
