Touring Around Los Angeles
November 2011
Our travels continued with a stop downtown to ride the Angels flight and a quick walk through the Grand Central Market.
"The Shortest Railway in the World." This funicular dates back to 1901, when Bunker Hill was one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Los Angeles and the cars, Olivet and Sinai, ferried prominent citizens up and down the steep slope between Hill and Olive streets. The beloved landmark was dismantled for "urban renewal" of the area in 1969. In the early 1990s, the Railway was refurbished and relocated a half-block south, reopening adjacent to California Plaza in 1996. As short as it is (298 feet), Angels Flight is an essential Los Angeles experience.

Across the street from Angels Flight is Grand Central Market, which is Los Angeles' oldest and largest outdoor market.
After a busy day, we went to Applebee's Restaurant in Azusa for dinner.  Ryan was working hard that night, because the restaurant was running a promotion for Veteran's Day--free meals to all veterans.
