The Metropolis Called Los Angeles

Just to let you know, I dropped my camera so you will see a lens
shadow in the top left hand corner of some of the pics. Time to
get a new one.

The 46,000 sq. ft. Doheny Estate in Beverly Hills.
Built in 1928 it sits on 16 acres. It is now a public park.
The estate was a gift from oil tycoon Edward L. Doheny to his son, Edward "Ned" Doheny, Jr., and his family.

For a so-called car-oriented city, it's nice to see some areas like McArthur Park, Olvera St, Fashion District, Venice Boardwalk etc. literally packed with pedestrians and lively.

Tirando a parte rica que é lindíssima, o resto é muito feio. Aquelas ruas do centro são horrorosas.
