We made a detour to see this, as it had been mentioned in Michael Connelly books. Loved seeing it. You can't ride on it at the moment, but reopening is planned for Labour Day 2017.

Angel's Flight is a type of conveyance called a "Funicular Railway", meaning a short railway that climbs a steep hill. The ride is short, cheap and well worth the diversion. At the bottom-end you will find the Central Market for good food. At the top...More

Unfortunately currently not working so you just get to see a static train car. Shame really as looks quite unique. I don't think there are plans to reopen anytime soon

The railway is still closed but it's an excellent historical venue to check out, if you wise to climb the stairs that are nearby, you will learn to appreciate why it was so helpful in the city.

Historic landmark of Los Angeles. It cost $0.50 cents to go up from the Grand Central Market. After an accident a few years back, the cable cars have not been in operation. You can still gain access to Cal Plaza by walking up a flight...More

CLOSED (except for the long stairway along the side) as of our visit on 8/14/16. Forget your stair-climber, this is a workout. 153 steps... Not only do you get to avoid the loiterers of dubious character that keep you from pausing on each platform on...More

It’s closed so you can no longer ride the funicular but it’s being maintained and may be open again someday. Right now all you can do is take pictures and walk up the (stinky) stairway to the (closed) ticket office. It was still really cool...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
