A Major Way Through Los Angeles Thoroughfares – Hill Street
Next, up in our article series, we’re going to take a look at one of the major thoroughfares of the city and cultural icons. We are going to take a look at Hill Street in the town itself. It is a major thoroughfare from the north to the south within the city and measures about 5 miles in length.
It runs between Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard near the campus of USC, and runs all the way through downtown Los Angeles and ends with the Arroyo Seco Parkway near Dodger Stadium.
Originally, Hill Street was laid out in 1849, in a different format as it was today. Also, this city street operates near or by some major parts of the city. These include a number of aspects of public transportation, including the Metro Red Line and the Metro Purple Line.
There are also some schools in and around the path of the street including Cathedral High School, the High School for the Visual and Performing Arts, and the Los Angeles Trade-Tech College.
The street also passes by some Los Angeles area landmarks. This includes Grand Park, the Garfield building, the Los Angeles County Hall of records, and Pershing Square. This is one of the most famous and also well-traveled streets within the entire city. There are a large number of travelers that traverse this area every day.
Hopefully, this article gave you a portion and knowledge about the long history of the city of Los Angeles and some factors within it. In this case, we focused more on the transport aspect, although in other articles we talk more about individual communities and the history and culture of the city.
