I’m a native and have moved away. There are many things I like about LA (museums, beach), but there ARE some things that really piss me off. Hollywood Blvd used to be pretty cool back in the sixties with a number of classic movie houses, used book stores. There really is no excuse for the amount of money in LA that Hollywood Bl should be that run down and tawdry. Same goes for lower Sunset near Alvarado…buildings literally collapsing onto the street. LA definitely needs to get its act together with zoning and proper care of its neighborhoods and landmarks.
