Highland Park — the ritzier of the two “Park Cities” — is home to the exclusive Highland Park Shopping Village, which began construction in 1930, and one of the chi-chi-est of chi-chi shopping areas in the country. And it’s beautiful. And I still can’t believe I spent numerous nights there, watching midnight showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. It was off-limits to society matrons after the sun went down on weekends!
