Last year I went to a meeting at the CleanTech Incubator near the L.A. river and I was surprised to see how much development has gone into the Arts District. Over the last few months I’ve been getting acquainted to L.A.’s latest gentrified, “it” neighborhood. Here’s what I LOVE about it: The energy is phenomenal (I think that has to do with the fact that there are amazing coffee houses on every corner). The murals are stunning. The designers and artists that created this community (and lived here before it was trendy) are still here.
The Arts District is nearing a tipping point. The money has moved in but not the pretentiousness and congestion that plagues other nearby communities (sorry Silverlake and Atwater) and again, the bonus is that the artists are still hanging in. It is my favorite neighborhood in L.A.
Here are some pics of my favorite spots:
