At this point, I'm used to seeing tons of fanfare towards our awesome LA neighborhood of Silver Lake. Just last night our gardener requested to change his working hours due to the swaths of afternoon visitors taking up his parking spots--not to mention the loud (but synchronized) drum ring at the meadow that went on for hours and hours. And that's just one afternoon!
So I wasn't terribly surprised to hear that Disney California Adventure's "Buena Vista Street" will be revamped to "pay homage to the Los Angeles that Walt Disney encountered upon his 1923 arrival with Spanish Revival and Art Deco architecture that replicates the Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Wilshire Boulevard areas of the city."
Makes a lot of sense. Not only does the mainstream clearly want a taste of classic Los Angeles, but Walt Disney actually started his empire in a nearby property in Silver Lake (right on Hyperion!).
