It doesn't really advertise itself from the outside so the entrance may be a bit hard to find, but if you get there there will be a trail of visitors going in- Once inside you can only stay on the ground floor and go up...More

My son and I are fans of the TV show Bosch and Titus Welliver who plays the main character. The guard was very pleasant and informative. It is a beautiful building and worth the stop if you are in the area. It is very close...More

L.A. is [in]famous for tearing down anything when it gets old, so it's somewhat of a miracle that this old iron building has survived. It can be rented for wedding receptions!

Another must-see for LA visitors. This is where they filmed Blade Runner as well as many other Hollywood classics. The architecture is stunning. Only down side is limited access, but you can still get some great photos

It is a very cool and nice architecture building to visit! Its architecture and story makes it a must to see in Downtown LA. However the area where visitors can be is really limited due to the fact that the building works as office premises.

I use to spend time enjoying the architectural design here in the early 70’s. It’s so amazing, the architecture is stunning. The just don’t make buildings like this anymore. It a must see if you’re in LA.

Used for filming many movies The Artist for one but most notably in Blade Runner. It is free to enter but access is limited. Be respectful and drink in the architecture.

If you are in downtown, I’d love to recommend this 1800s building which holds its very unique historic features. It’s free to enter and you can walk around (although it’s a fairly small space). The elevator was one of the oldest. And the ironworks along...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants

No, the entrance that we went in was right off Broadway and was free. Nearby is the Central Market which is also a must see. The Biltmore hotel with beautiful lobby is also about 4 blocks away. We took a Metro bus to the... More
