Located in the Historic Core of Downtown LA, the agency has its advantages when it comes to old Hollywood history, gorgeous architecture, amazing eateries, and a booming art scene. Well, if ever there was a time to dust off the top hat, it is now.
In an effort to revitalize and restore this area of DTLA, councilman Huizar is leading a decade-long effort towards “Bringing Back Broadway”. Below is a direct quote from the website, which aims to restore, preserve, and light up the signs and many of the historic buildings and theaters, in addition to bringing back the streetcar that was once used for public transit before the advent of automobiles! Imagine walking down the street as it was a century ago, glittering and glorious with lighted marquises, and the sounds of vaudevillian music and streetcar bells filling the night air!
