Iconic Wilshire Boulevard: Michael Jaime-Becerra

Hosted by

Last Sunday thousands pedaled and walked the stretch of Wilshire Boulevard between downtown and Fairfax Avenue, free of the cars. It was another hugely successful cicLAvia but this one came with a taste of architecture as well. As part of Pacific Standard Time Presents Modern Architecture in LA, the Getty sponsored a series of stories, bringing to life the buildings and planning that shaped a strip built largely during the zenith of car culture. We are concluding our series of Wilshire Boulevard Stories with a love story, born in Macarthur Park. Here is Los Angeles writer, Michael Jaime-Becerra, presenting Rosita and Michael.
