More Information about our beloved Downtown:

Downtown Los Angeles’ architecture tells the story of the city’s growth. Dating back to the1880’s, Broadway was Los Angeles’ principal commercial and entertainment corridor while Bunker Hill to the west was covered with stately Victorian mansions. The area’s stylish residents rode down on Angel’s Flight to shop for groceries in the Grand Central Market’s open air arcade. These and other beloved Los Angeles landmarks like the LA Central Library and Bradbury Building show LA’s unique history through architecture, while newer structures like the Disney Concert Hall and Broad Museum show LA’s progress.
