It’s a bird, it’s a plane, no it’s Superman. I cannot view the City Hall without thinking of Lois Lane and Clark Kent. Superman always flew over the Los Angeles City Hall in the 1950’s episodes of Superman. The corridors are open to the public...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
