You may have noticed a few articles in our pages about the development of Los Angeles’ long underexploited street, Broadway, which is experiencing a phenomenal resurgence. Now it’s time to take a look at the progress made so far. This Sunday, June 29, AN is co-organizing a (second) tour of the thoroughfare with the A+D Museum, guided by AN West Coast Editor Sam Lubell and LA institution Mike the Poet.

The event will stop at some of Broadway’s greatest architectural treasures—including the Bradbury Building, the Los Angeles and Rialto Theaters, the Wurlitzer Building, and the Herald-Examiner— and it will look at its future, including revamped and widened sidewalks, new towers and businesses, and even a streetcar.
Tickets range from $5 to $20 and are available from the A+D Museum.Broadway Tower (Hanson LA) Orpheum Theater sign (Doug Patton)
