Welcome to Downtown Los Angeles & Boyle Heights
Though still sketchy in patches, Downtown (DTLA) continues its upward swing. New condos and hotels are sprouting like mushrooms, joined by buzz-inducing eateries, bars, boutiques and galleries. It's here that you'll find the space-age Broad museum and Walt Disney Concert Hall, which povide dramatic counterpoints to the crumbling opulence of Broadway theaters, the Spanish curves of historic Olvera St and the hulking warehouses of the booming Arts District. Across the concrete Los Angeles River lies East LA, the oldest and largest Mexican community outside of Mexico and home to earthy, vibrant Boyle Heights.
