7TH STREET METRO CENTER

Junction of the RED, PURPLE, BLUE and EXPO LINES.


7th Street - Metro Center Station Los Angeles
by Louie Baur, on Flickr



The grand station is under this wonderful building, the main entrance is at the corner...btw the opposing corner is where the Wilshire Grand is being built.

The old Fire Station on the left is very old, beautiful building.

The ceiling murals in the main entrance are wonderful, as they depict the sky as if you were outdoors.

7th street / Metro center ... where LA looks like the big metropolis which it is.
(At least outside on street level. The crowd in the station seems rather manageable for such a big city)

Hey guys, I'm glad you enjoyed them. Ah, and yes, rush our work days it's crazy, but it's nice to see and feel that vibe. Weekends are usually light.

It was before and it will be again.

The system just doesn't get enough publicity.

Sitting in gridlock for hours each day isn't productive...so people are slowly switching over to Mass Transit and Alt ways of commuting... 20yrs from Now the train might be the better way of getting around..

The Gold Line runs from the San Gabriel Valley to East LA. The change in urban setting and communities is amazing.

East LA is almost 100% Hispanic, and historically the Mexican and Mexican American enclave. A bi of history...East LA is right across the river from Downtown, and as things were in the pas during segregation, tho California wasn't fully segregated, as long as Latinos stayed across the river they were fine.

These are some of the East LA Gold Line Stations.
