Downtown (Bunker Hill)

Los Angeles has an increasingly vital downtown thanks to the addition of some monumental buildings, notably the Disney Concert Hall, which opened in 2003.

  1. From N. Hope and W. 1st Sts. (reached via Bus #14, 60, 360, or 714), head northeast on N. Hope, then turn right to enter
  2. Music Center Plaza (1; 135 N. Grand Ave.), noting the New Formalism architecture, the dancing fountain, and the Peace On Earth sculpture. Continue southeast down the wide stairs to Grand, enjoying an unobstructed view of broad-shouldered City Hall. Head southwest on Grand toward gleaming
  3. Walt Disney Concert Hall(2; #135). As you cross W. 1st St., the dramatically curved steel exterior of the Fran Gehry design comes into view (tours available most days, 10 A.M. � 2 P.M.). Continue southwest toward other design icons, the Modernist
  4. Colburn School of Performing Arts (3; #200) and the iconoclastic
  5. Museum of Contemporary Art (4; #250) (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays). Continue on to the corner of S. Grand and W. 5th St. to check out
  6. One Bunker Hill(5; 601 W. 5th), the Art Deco former headquarters of LA�s first electric company. Head northwest on 5th to arrive at the
  7. Central Public Library (6; #630). Built in 1926 and renovated in the early 1980s, the library�s Bradley Atrium is a visual feast. Before entering, look north and check out the Library Tower office building, the tallest structure w. of the Mississippi. After browsing, exit the library on S. Flower St., crossing W. 5th and heading northeast to the
  8. Bonaventure Hotel (7; 404 S. Figueroa St.). Take the glass-sided �Red� elevator (used in the film True Lies)to the 36th floor for one of the best views in the city. Catch Bus #18, 53, 55, or 60 on W. 5th. at
