When the railroad first came to Los Angeles, California, the area had been largely agricultural (except after the discovery of gold in 1848, when it became a hotbed of gamblers, outlaws, and thugs) since its founding in 1781. But the San Pedro Railroad changed LA when it began in 1869, and the small downtown area began to develop. Today, the Historic Core is a pedestrian-friendly, mostly residential neighborhood. Vacant historic buildings that were once commercial and office space have been converted into lofts and apartments.

The Bradbury Building, built in 1893, is the oldest office building in LA. Cole’s is the oldest continually-operating restaurant — it opened in 1908. An area of museums, theaters, restaurants, and retail stores, the Historic Core feels more like a small town than an urban neighborhood. The Grand Central Market is an open-air farmers market featuring produce, spices, and more.
