Crystal Court is a shopping center, located at ____, in the city of Costa Mesa, California.  It's right across the street from the more-famous South Coast Plaza. 

It also has a great palm collection. The best part is, it's a really public place.  You can visit any time, even when the shopping center is closed.  Just pull in the lot and look.

In Southern California, most shopping centers don't have really great palms.  They have the "usual suspects" i.e., the common and the ordinary. Which, of course, can be great, too.   

But, Crystal Court has the uncommon or the rare.
