We don’t watch Mad Men but apparently its final season is seeing old Los Angeles brought back in really fun ways.
There are some parts of the city that you walk past and that have existed for decades but have gone untouched.

Local Construct is an LA land developer who are going to get Echo Park to take that next step toward being a brilliant neighborhood by way of smart construction. How are they doing this? They are creating a micro-neighborhood focused on not driving in a fairly popular part of the ‘hood. These places are definitely going to be coveted.

The store featured what felt like an endless amount of cakes made in the form of Los Angeles landmarks. They were not only a testament to local culinary, cake talents but were wonderful representations of some of Los Angeles’ most well known architecture. It was a delicious happening.
