Default Los Angeles Pics (all LA pic posts go here)

A walking photo tour of the greater "Rancho Park" and "Westwood" areas of west LA, including glimpses of Century City and the highrises along Wilshire Blvd. This was over a month ago but I haven't gotten around to posting it until now. I wasn't even sure what to call these areas, so I did some research, reading the comments/debates on the LA Times Mapping LA blog. I hope I didn't offend anybody. Whatever it happens to be called, I really like this part of "West LA." This is the first part.

Pico Blvd:









Neighborhood:









































































Santa Monica, Beverly Glen, Wilshire:



























































Photo tour continued here: http://www.city-data.com/forum/los-a...vd-photos.html

Continuation of the last thread, a walking photo tour along Westwood Blvd between Wilshire and Pico. No commentary from me-- I'll let you draw your own conclusions.





























































































































End photo tour.

Great photos, though it is unfortunate that you see more and more vacant store fronts and lease signs on both sides of Wilshire these days.

Anyway, I give you Long Beach, California's fifth largest city!

WOW! Thank you for these! You made my neighborhood look so good! I really do like living in Long Beach, and being able to afford an apt. that catches some ocean breezes, but I do feel a little isolated from the rest of L.A. That would be my only complaint about living down here. We go to Burbank, West Hollywood, Malibu and the Valley a lot, and it is such a loooooooong drive. Great pics- the B&B is absolutely adorable!

Heheh... must be all of the photos of restaurant storefronts. BTW, I've eaten at a number of the Persian restaurants on Westwood Bl, they've all been pretty good.
