The Old Bank District offers an ever-growing array of restaurants, bars, galleries, retail and nightlife for the urban dweller. The historically-preserved neighborhood has become a community within itself, beginning with early rehabilitation of historic buildings and development within the area. In 2004, the City of Los Angeles recognized the community-building efforts of the Old Bank District.

We did a walking tour through here and while the buildings are quite impressive, or would have been once, they have been let run down and most have been converted into crappy low cost apartments. Apparently the city is putting money into revamping the district...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
