#architecture #L.A #usa This is the Walt Disney Concert hall designed by Frank Ghery, this beautiful building in downtown L.A is situated in the corner of Hope Street with Grand Avenue. Downtown LA🏙 Downtown Los Angeles is the central business district of Los Angeles, California, as well as a diverse residential neighborhood of some 58,000 people. A 2013 study found that the district is home to over 500,000 jobs.[2]
A heritage of the city's founding in 1781, Downtown Los Angeles today is composed of different areas ranging from a fashion district to a skid row, and it is the hub of the city's Metro rapid transit system. Banks, department stores and movie palaces at one time drew residents and visitors into the area, but the district declined economically and suffered a downturn for decades until its recent renaissance starting in the early 2000s: Old buildings are being modified for new uses, and skyscrapers have been built. Downtown Los Angeles is known for its government buildings, parks, theaters and other public places. The layers on sunrise...

Best $1.50 you can spend Frank Gehry was the architect for this masterpiece in downtown LA. In contrast to the steel exterior, the inside is paneled in warm wood and bright colors. It's a real treat to watch a concert here. I always love the fun vibe and interesting crowd at the ACE hotels. Try one! The Walt Disney Concert Hall reflects the morning light on a quiet Sunday morning in Los Angeles.

#losangelespubliclibrary #library #losangeles #california #architecture #goodhue If you're looking for a place to eat in downtown L.A., stop by Grand Central Market for a delicious array of interesting food choices. The stands offer everything from Mexican tacos to German sausages and French pastries.
The stands' bright neon signs are helpful for getting an idea of what's where, but the best way to pick out your meal is by just going up to the counters and seeing what looks (and smells) the best. #market #colorful Coolest. Bookstore. Ever. This is an actual tunnel of books! 📚
This is the Last Bookstore in downtown L.A., a giant treasure trove for book lovers. You can find all sorts of books here, from new, shiny bestsellers to beaten up used copies sold for $1.
Go upstairs and explore the 'Labyrinth', a maze of all sorts of books. The book tunnel is especially cool!
There's also plenty going on that's not directly book-related. The upper floor is lined with artists' studios and artisan shops, and there are frequent concerts and lectures going on downstairs.
In short, get yourself here ASAP if you're in downtown L.A.! :) See a Twister, in front of your eyes. #KidsFun Downtown Los Angeles skyline in a clear, smog-free day as viewed from the top of The Getty Center. #blue Fantastic Sunset while riding my bike along the shore on the water front walk in the city of Venice Beach, California. #sunset #goldenhour #magichour #amazingsunsets #colorful Eclipse watchers on August 21st might be in for a surprise appearance of solar spots to see.

This unorthodox facade, which the architects refer to as the The Bradbury Building, built in 1893 in downtown Los Angeles, is my favorite building in California--at least my favorite interior. It's been a location for a number of movies, such as Blade Runner, Double Indemnity, and (500) Days of Summer. Adorable find in a hole in the wall donut shop! Lots of colorful and unique flavors that I'm going to have to try out.

It's right across the street from Disney Hall, so there's starting to be some interesting architecture around the Music Center. The new Broad Museum in downtown L.A. is one of the hottest openings of the year. The sleek building was constructed by the Diller Scofidio + Renfro architecture firm, and sits just across the street from Frank Gehry's undulating Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Admission is free, so it's no surprise that this cool new joint can get pretty busy. Tickets may be all sold out months in advance online. There are some distributed daily in person at the museum, but you have to get there before lunchtime to be one of the lucky ones. (I sadly wasn't!).

It's inside a massive building (formerly a bank) in the Historic Core and is filled with a wide range of old/new books, eclectic vinyl records, and book related art. Love this amazing bookstore.

Sometimes for hours. It’s recommended that you get there early if you want to get in. Or plan ahead and nab a ticket when they are released to the public once a month. #losangeles #LA #architecture #modernart #thebroad #calistyle
www.visa-vis.com The Walt Disney Concert Hall is pretty spectacular for the outside, but do go inside and check out the sweeping interior as well. Frank Gehry's work is even more spectacular on the inside.
Bonus: if you're hot and sweaty from walking around sunny L.A., the building has great air conditioning (and free bathrooms). Watch out for the café hours though, as the one inside closes at 2 p.m. on non-concert days. Downtown LA Grand Park Downtown LA Night time street crimes in DTLA.

The historic Central Library Goodhue building was constructed in 1926 and is a Downtown Los Angeles landmark.[7] The Richard Riordan Central Library complex is the third largest public library in the United States in terms of book and periodical holdings. Originally named the Central Library, the building was first renamed in honor of the longtime president of the Board of Library Commissioners and President of the University of Southern California, Rufus B. von KleinSmid. The new wing of Central Library, completed in 1993, was named in honor of former mayor Tom Bradley.[8] The complex (i.e., the original Goodhue building and the Bradley wing) was subsequently renamed in 2001 for former Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan, as the Richard Riordan Central Library.

Memorial Day at Chavez ravine Mmmmm. The Cecil Hotel (now rebranded as Stay on Main) in Downtown Los Angeles (640 S. Main Street) is a budget hotel with 600 guest rooms (originally 700). Constructed in 1924, the hotel was intended for business travelers but in the 1950s it gained a reputation as a residence for transients. A portion of the hotel was refurbished in 2007 after new owners took over.
The Hotel is known for several suicides and its criminal activity which includes three murders. Most notably, the hotel was the reported residence for serial killers Richard Ramirez in 1985 and Jack Unterweger in 1991.
In February 2013, the nude body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian student, was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof. Lam went missing January 31, and her decomposed body was discovered on February 19 by a maintenance worker in one of the rooftop water tanks, after guests had complained about low water pressure and water that Beautiful Echo park ,celebrating the Lotus flower festival .
