Nice pictures! Downtown LA is definitely underrated. I remember walking past that bookstore. I've heard good things about it.

The next time I'm there, I'm going to have to find a rooftop like the ones you were on. Any cheaper options, like for the price of a cheaper beer?

I'm going to say the rooftop at the Freehand Hotel may be your best option.

Also, these photos are amazing! This last 7 or 8 years has to be one of the greatest periods of prosperity for DTLA in its history.

That aerial of the historic core is amazing. Great photos. I need to get back to LA. Haven't been since Summer 2012.

The Historic Core is an urban gem. Every time I’m feeling down about LA, I remind myself that that’s where the city first began and that it has the powerful potential to get both locals and non-locals alike to reimagine what DTLA can be moving forward. It represents the kind of high-quality urban template that simply can’t be recreated from scratch in today’s day and age.

Always a pleasure, Pwright! These are great!

On a side note, I always find it amusing how much tinier in real life the Predator 2 building (Eastern Columbia) and Die Hard building (yeah, I know not included in this photo thread for the obvious reason of being located elsewhere).

But damn, every time I make itnto downtown Los Angeles I have to spend a few minutes gawking like an idiot at the Eastern Columbia building, as it's such a fine specimen of art deco.
