NO PLACE LIKE L.A. IS OUR SERIES THAT ASKS L.A. TRANSPLANTS AND IMMIGRANTS: "WHEN WAS THE MOMENT YOU FELT THAT LOS ANGELES WAS TRULY HOME?"
THIS IS THE STORY OF Mary Little from the Arts District.
I am from Northern Ireland, and I moved to just south of the Arts District in Los Angeles in 2014.
But our dear old friends Lisa and Danny were born and raised here.
About a year ago, we took them on a tour in the Arts District.
Beautiful little stores like Poketo – I go there to buy birthday cards, thank you cards.
I took them to Hammer and Spear, it's a really cool interior design store.
We went to Hauser and Wirth, a really great gallery. They even have chickens.
When we got back home, Danny said, "I can't believe you - of all people - have just given us a tour of our own city."
That's why I love downtown.
