Allison Milionis of CityBeat gives a big wet smooch to Downtown's Historic Core offering up her take on the revitalized 'hood.
The Historic Core ? bounded by Third, Ninth, Hill, and Main streets ? has the most diverse commerce, cultures, and spectacular architecture, including the theaters lining Broadway. This is also the home of L.A.?s famous jewelry centers, which generate an unbelievable $2.5 billion a year. The best thing to come out of this district?s redevelopment will be the love and long-awaited respect given to its many architectural gems.
