There are many throughout the central basin. A couple that come to mind immediately would be along the Wilshire corridor. On the sidewalks of Wilshire and approximately the area around Mariposa can be very vibrant with loads of pedestrians during a typical business day. Also, an area I've noticed that stands out, especially during rush hour would be the intersection of Wilshire and Western. I always enjoy hitting that intersection, especially even when the traffic is crowded and I have to wait for two or three light changes. People watching wise, it's like a bit of Manhattan has been transplanted to L.A. Also, as you drive north on Western through the intersection and glance to the East, Wilshire appears very high and wonderfully dense. Another phenomenon of that intersection, and I'm not sure why, is that there seems to always be a few stunning super model type pedestrians. I guess there must be a high volume of models who live in that part of K-Town.
Another area of course, is much of the CBD of Santa Monica. Also, the area area around Hollywood and Highland is typically jammed. I'm loving how they've revived, restored and redeveloped much of the Downtown Hollywood Blvd. Strip over the past couple of decades. It's a vast improvement from what I remember when I first walked it in the 90's.
