One of the most notable neighborhoods in Los Angeles is Downtown, an area that houses landmark properties and attractions: L.A. Live, Nokia Theatre, Staples Center and the Los Angeles Convention Center to name just a few.

Another area of Downtown is the Civic Center which houses local, state and federal authorities, Los Angeles City Hall and the Los Angeles Superior Court and many other city, county, state and federal or related offices and residential lofts which have sprung up all over the downtown area.
The Pershing Square area of Downtown Los Angeles is where the Jewelry District begins and rightfully boasts the International Jewelry Center, while at the far end of Downtown is Union Station where the public transportation network begins and ends. Close by is Olvera Street and then Little Tokyo.
Shoppers will be happy to hear that in Downtown, the 7th Street Metro area is home to Macy’s Plaza and 7th & Fig, certain to tame some shopping whims.
