West Meets East at the Wilshire Center Art and Architecture Walk
“Wilshire Center is one of Los Angeles' oldest neighborhoods, steeped in old Hollywood splendor, dotted with historic architecture, modern skyscrapers and bustling with ethnic and socio-economic diversity,” says Michael Russell, Operations Director of the Wilshire Center BID (Business Improvement District). “Wilshire Center was once called the Upper East Side of the West Coast, because of tony department stores like Bullocks Wilshire, and New York style apartments built for movie stars, when the area was popular with old Hollywood. There are still about 70 of these apartment structures here which are enjoying a revival of sorts, with developers renovating them to their former glory. Nearly 300 people are on the waiting list for a spot in the Los Altos Apartments. We'd love to see more art galleries opening up in these historic building as well”.
