Downtown LA Disneyland

This is very long but it's kind of a neat summary of a downtown-LA tour done by noted retrologist Charles Phoenix, with the controlling principle being that downtown LA is just like Disneyland.

The "sunken garden" -- a public park right below the Music Center, which is referred to late in the tour -- is indeed an example of the loneliness of mid-century public architecture. It is also home to the lonliest Starbucks in the world (although I imagine at 8:58 on a weekday morning it's busy enough with civil servants).
