I really enjoyed the interior of the building. The wrought iron railings, brick walls and woodwork were worth the stop. You can walk right in and walk around the first floor, but are not supposed to go up to the other floors unless you have...More

There is not much to do here. It only takes a second to walk in. But if you are in that area it is worth it to walk in and marvel at the incredible architecture

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
