La Brea Boulevard Is On the Move

Drive north or south on La Brea Boulevard and you are going to see the city as you’ve never seen it – or at least as I’ve never seen it – in a frenzy of construction. Multistory wood frames are being nailed together as fast as the red cranes can haul the timber. Fossilized dinosaurs are giving way to stylish opportunities. New shops are turning on their lights. I hope the expansion will breathe life into the businesses that have soldiered through the recession. I decided to walk the length of La Brea to take in the metamorphosis. But, La Brea is a really long, major thoroughfare of our city, so I am going to take it slowly. Here are the moments my camera liked best between 3rd street and Wilshire Boulevard.
