    Loved this quiet corner of Venice. We were there very early at 8am and so the walkways very quiet, only a few joggers and dog walkers around, the houses were truly gorgeous with cute gardens and decorations. Great for the ‘which one would you buy?’ game. The developer has wanted to recreate the feel of Venice, Italy, which is a bit of a stretch but I get what he was trying to do. I definitely left with house envy! We probably spent about 45 minutes wandering until we had seen enough.

    Its a nice little spot to visit. Only down side was, my favorite Resteraunt was closed. But the little spot we ate at was really good.

    I'm a big movie nerd and was not dissappointed loved looking at all the stars names. Only downside to Hollywood is the constant pestering of street performer wanting you to purchase their music or people in costume nagging you to have a photograph with them and charging silly amounts of money.

    We read about this place so decided to come visit (around sunset). We parked at one end and walked the road. Some displays were very impressive and the height some lights in the trees must have taken some impressive climbing or machinery to get them up there. Apparently it can get very busy if you drive it (1 hour or more to drive end to end in traffic). Great thanks to all the residents who participated.

    In LA they usually tear down anything that is old, so come and see some of the history before it completely disappears. This has been the center of the city for a long time so there is a lot here to learn and experience. I recommend a walking tour, but watch out for the traffic in this car-dominated landscape.

    For 80 years the corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street has basked in a mystique. These days it's the centerpiece of Los Angeles' most ambitious redevelopment effort. That kind of combination has been a staple at the corner since 1903 when a sunny lemon grove was uprooted to make way for Hollywood's first church congregation. The intersection was known as Prospect and Weyse Avenues when landowner Daeida Beveridge gave members of the German Methodist Church the southeast corner. Prospect Avenue, the main artery was renamed Hollywood Boulevard and Weyse Avenue became Vine Street. This was the origin of Hollywood and Vine.

    We saw these steps coming out of the public library. A nice work out. Nicely done with a man made water feature running down the center. There are escalators for those who want to ride up.

    I have walked through the theater district a few times and there are always nice sites and buildings to be seen. I can only imagine what it was like when it wasnt run down. Although it is a bit dirty and old you can still come see a lot of great buildings and theaters..There are so many of them!

    Do not waste your time here. Skid row smells like human flesh cooking in an unhealthy mix of day old whiskey and piss. I don’t recommend going as a tourist. The overwhelming smell of Subway (the sandwich shop not the transit hub) dances violently with the smell of deteriorating flesh. It’s a full on attack to the senses with zero reward. There are two murals and neither is particularly impressive.

    Five stars for bizarreness. This place is a bit dangerous and definitely a little creepy. If you come for the fantastic picnic area and trail hike, you'll leave happy. If you come to slip through holes in the fence and climb on the old zoo enclosures, you'll leave happy. There are plenty of places to hike on and off trail. The picnic green is amazing. There are public bathrooms that were clean at 5pm. Read up on the history of this place and your visit will be even better.
