6th street + lorraine boulevard, hancock park

When I have to take a trip from Mid-Wilshire to, say, Hodori restaurant in K-town (that's Koreatown, dontcha know), I always make sure to take my favorite crosstown drive: 6th Street. Heady + lush foliage spills over the vintage LA homes lining the road, which bends here and there to provide a welcome diversion from the city's usual gridded monotony. A narrowed 6th Street pulls roadside trees closer together to form a dense green tunnel (seen elsewhere in Hancock Park) and just slows everything down, to create a boldly impractical path that lets our lovely jaunt last as long as we wish. See it narrowed!
