downtown LA is just a 10 minute drive from hollywood boulevard. the Downtown area was second only to the Glamour and Popularity of Hollywood in the pre-war years but the historic area slowly became run down and the historic buildings dilapidated and crime was rampant, in the 1990's there were efforts to refurbish and gentrifiy the area adn their efforts are now bearing fruit. The Downtown scene is now more lively and the tourist are starting to come back too. Downtown Los Angeles marks the geographic, political, and historic center of Los Angeles. Although the smallest region of Los Angeles by area, it includes a great variety of diverse neighborhoods, ranging from the many modern skyscrapers of the Financial District to the historic structures of the Historic Core to the ethnic enclaves of Chinatown and Little Tokyo. It also contains many cultural attractions and entertainment venues. Downtown is also a center for local and regional transportation, with several freeways passing through and Union Station connecting regional trains to local buses and the Metro Line plus is the area of Staples Center (LA Lakers and LA Clippers of the NBA).
