It's known as
the state of mind
is decidedly up.
The story of Downtown L.A.'s renaissance resembles that of similar districts elsewhere, especially New York City's Tribeca. Mainly industrial from the 19th century onward, Tribeca emerged as the celebrated residential, arts, and nightlife neighborhood that Forbes magazine called Manhattan's most expensive zip code. Looking ahead, the most significant difference between the two downtowns may be the weather.
Downtown is an inspiring outdoor museum of architecture, much of which houses the performing arts: the symphony at Walt Disney Concert Hall; opera at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion; and theater at the Mark Taper Forum. If you prefer your arts more contemplative, consider the Museum of Contemporary Art or a stroll along Gallery Row.
From black tie at the Music Center to black denim at the music clubs, Downtown is a rich mosaic of styles sharing the upward trend toward hip elegance. The cosmopolitan tastes are evident throughout sophisticated dining scene and the events hosted by your neighbor, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising. New stores are bound to follow the trend — after all, not every new supermarket is so remarkable it's christened by the mayor.
One reason Downtown habitués have a sunny outlook may be the warm, mild climate that leads to dancing in the streets. All year the neighborhood is alive with outdoor concerts, open-air festivals, street fairs, art walks, and athletic exhibitions. There are even outdoor movies in the park, not unlike a drive-in without the cars.
