It is no small feat for an independent bookstore to stay in business during the times when even giant chains have caved in. It is a downright marvel when a brand-new bookstore emerges and proceeds to forge upstream against the general trend of brick-and-mortar decline. One such miracle occurred in the midst of the Downtown Arts District in 2011 when The Last Bookstore opened its doors, dazzling eager bibliophiles and inquisitive passers-by with its spacious, beautifully laid-out interior packed full of new and used editions of every genre. With its affordable prices, friendly staff and a massive, continuously changing collection, the bookstore quickly claimed for itself a permanent place among the most popular destination of Downtown LA.
Während es für die Kinder in L.A. noch vor Jahren üblich war, nur im Sommer ein Paar mexikanische Sandalen und vielleicht einige mexikanische Bohnen in der Olvera Street zu erstehen, ist es heute eine fast alltägliche Praxis. In dieser aus Kopfsteinpflastern gefertigten Straße findet man eine Fülle von traditionellen Kleidungsstücken und Accessoires, mexikanische Kunstwerke, Geschenkartikel, Lederwaren, Krimskrams sowie auch einige Restaurants. In dem Besucherzentrum können Gäste einen fantastischen Film darüber, wie das Leben in L.A. in früheren Zeiten war, anschauen. Die Olvera Street, die in den 1930er Jahren gebaut wurde, ist nur einen Wohnblock von dem Platz entfernt, auf dem das Monument von Al Pueblo steht. Dieses wiederum liegt nahe dem historischen Kern der Stadt. Mit Las Angelinas, einer gemeinnützigen Organisation, kann man mittwochs bis samstags zwischen 10:00 und 12:00 eine kostenlose Besichtigungstour unternehmen (keine Anmeldung erforderlich).
