O: Downtown Los Angeles Bunker Hill and Central Library Discovery Walk: Socially paced, 3 mi rt. with stops to talk about the art and architecture of the area. Bunker Hill was once a proud neighborhood of Victorian homes which eventually became a slum. Today some of the city’s first skyscrapers occupy the vicinity complete with gardens, courtyards, fountains and public art. As Angels Flight is not operating, expect a couple of blocks of stairs and uphill. The Spanish Steps (and escalators) connect this area with the Central Library. We will walk through the Library's Maguire Gardens then view some architecturally significant 1920s buildings in the bustling jewelry district and take a peek inside the Bradbury Building before heading back to the Central Market.
Meet 9:30am at exit to Pershing Square Metro Red and Purple Line Station, northwest corner of W 4th St and S Hill St. Approx. 2 - 3 hrs.
Wear walking shoes. Bring water, snacks, sun protection. Dress appropriately for weather. Bring money for optional lunch after walk.
