Is there a certain time the WG turns on and off its lights? Or do they stay on overnight?

Its subjective. I believe it looks striking during the day as well.

You can look at the pictures and make a judgement. If you don't like it, fine.

We've actually got several streets like that. It's the old financial district on the east side of downtown. I was surprised by this as well when I moved to LA over a decade ago. This area has seen dramatic investment since the recession and become a really dynamic part of the city. That photo is truly stunning though

I was also amazed at the density of DTLA streets when I visited. They could really have something there with increased development. It has approximate Center City Philadelphia density/canyon vibe. Some streets almost more-so.

This area, named the Historic Core, is often used by TV and movie productions to simulate places like NY, Chi, and Philly all the time. Its prew war street grid was built in the exact same style as those cities. And even now some of the surface lots are being filled in.
The WG has really started getting attention in its own right. People walking the streets stop all the time to look up at it. Even the local news channels that feature live cams showing the skyline are centering on it now.

Finally LA is getting a worthy skyline for its huge size.
