      A People's Guide to Los Angeles. Wendy Cheng ’s A People’s Guide to Los. King-O'Riain's book is a detailed portrait on a relatively small canvas. It would have been a stronger work if. “A People’s Guide to Los Angeles is not for the Beverly Hills, celebrity-gawking crowd, but for those whose idea of fun involves a glimpse of L.A.’s left-leaning history. The book is a blueprint to places where progressive groups fought battles along lines of color, gender and class.

      Los Angeles is heaven for shoppers with plenty of cash to splash, with upmarket streets such as Rodeo Drive and Melrose Avenue attracting big-name designer brands and the celebrity browsers to match. Elsewhere, La Brea and La Cienega are good for an interior design fix, while for handmade crafts and quirky souvenirs, Pasedena is your best bet. In the first decades of the 20th century, Boyle Heights was inhabited by Jewish immigrants, who have since migrated west to the Fairfax district and beyond. They left behind the oldest orthodox synagogue in Los Angeles, and Brooklyn Avenue, which has since been renamed Cesar E. Chavez Avenue. Boyle Heights is now the heart of the Latino barrio.

        A fascinating "guide" to the Los Angeles area which focuses on the social history of the area. It's an alternative guide book, in that it tells the stories of people often oppressed or whose stories aren't often told: immigrants, people of colour, queer folks, activists/5(1). Last Updated on 9 April An article By Pier Nirandara of A short introduction about the city. Ah, Los Angeles, the City of Angels! Famed for its film industry, LA is an amalgamation of the glitz and glamor of Hollywood and SoCal beach vibes.
