Where is the Cheech Marin Mural?

It's not in East L.A. It's north of Van Nuys.

No, the "Born in East L.A." star Cheech Marin isn't in East L.A. He's in Van Nuys.

Levi Ponce, the muralist who did portraits of Frida Kahlo and Danny Trejo in Pacoima and Arleta, finished up this mural at Bartree Avenue and Van Nuys Boulevard on the side of a liquor store last November.

The mural contains the Van Nuys Airport and depicts the 1987. Fellow muralists Steve Acevedo, Erica Friend and Leonardo Tejeda helped finish it.

The exact address is 13958 Van Nuys Boulevard.

What happened to Cardinal Mahony’s helicopter at Van Nuys airport? ARCHBISHOP PILOTS HELICOPTER, SAYS GIFT WON'T COST CHURCH ANYTHING JOHN ANTCZAK , Associated Press AP NEWS ARCHIVE Feb. 28, 1989 9:47 PM ET LOS ANGELES (AP) _ He's known as the flying archbishop, but Roger Mahony insists his new helicopter is a way to take on the city's nagging traffic problem, not a takeoff of the 1960s television series ''The Flying Nun.'' ''It's part of the Southern California scene now. Traffic is really a problem,'' said the archbishop, who demonstrated the $400,000 gift Tuesday with a spin over parts of the 8,762-square-mile Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Mahony, 53, who has a helicopter pilot's license and about 140 hours flying time, flew the blue-striped, turbine-powered McDonnell Douglas 500-D around Van Nuys Airport for about 15 minutes after a news conference.
