Hilltowns of Los Angeles, volume 2: The Hill that Wasn’t There

June 18, 2008

The second part takes us to Bunker Hill, which you might not even notice in the above photo. The skyscrapers are actually on top of it, appearing taller than they are. Originally a residential area, its buildings are now almost entirely for business, except for Disney Hall and the Music Center, as well as a few apartment buildings.

Silver Lake Reservoir ~ Embassament de Silver Lake (Llac de Plata)

This is the first part of a series that shows the picturesque hill neighborhoods that surround and make up the downtown area and its immediate surroundings. This post shows some views of Silver Lake and Echo Park, perhaps the best known hill neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

Aquesta és la primera part d’una sèrie que mostra els barris de pujol pintorescs que envolten i formen part el centre de la ciutat i les zones immediatament al voltant. Aquesta actualització mostra qualques vistes de Silver Lake (Llac de Plata) i Echo Park (Parc de l’Eco), potser els més coneguts dels barris de pujol a Los Angeles.
