How To Find Old LA

How To Find Old LA Herb Lester Associates 1

When visiting a new city, what should you see? That’s probably the most important question on every traveller’s mind as the things you see can make or break a trip or experience of a city. London based design makers Herb Lester Associates think about that often and have made a collection of travel guides to assist travelers through illustrative charm.

For Los Angeles, they decided to dig deep and give visitors the more seasoned parts of Los Angeles.

It is perhaps one of the easiest hikes in town and the payoff is pretty extraordinary regardless of your thoughts on the superhero or Hollywood: it’s a special little destination that easily wows.

But, truth telling: most of the article is bogus but our “expanding” so quickly from outsider money is something to be concerned about. Who is really in control of LA? Do those people actually care about the city? That’s where we see the imminent decline coming from…
