In case you don’t read newspapers (so, this should apply) the Los Angeles Times has done us all a favour and architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne has been documenting every in-and-out of Sunset Boulevard, going west-to-east, which he says is different than normal because most folks like to make that trip east-to-west.
(Sure. We’ll believe you. We don’t live there.)
Of course, that does make sense. East Los Angeles doesn’t carry a lot of aesthetic weight, while West Los Angeles is full of the Bel Airs and the Pacific Oceans and the Hollywoods and the Chateau Marmonts.
The best part of Hawthorne’s journey through his own city is that he basically covers the city’s architectural side, which is perfect, because we’ve all heard the typical shhhhhhhhhhpeel from everyone else about every surface-level analysis of L.A.
You can get that by watching Heat or even The Black Dahlia.
