Dean Haglund, known for his role of Langly on The X-Files, is one of the few guides is also a resident of the downtown and lives in this fantastic area on a daily basis. He has a breadth of knowledge of the history of downtown Los Angeles and the early days of entertainment and Silent Film, long before Hollywood was the center of filming.

Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
