This is just a short walk from the Angels Flight inclined railway, which I can highly recommend.

Glad to see this important sculpture and urban landscape getting some love! It is threatened by the planned redevelopment of the World Trade Center, and I’m hoping that there will be a way to preserve Sheets’ work and the space it inhabits. Across Downtown, at the Los Angeles Times parking garage, Sheets’ historical timeline sculptures have recently been wrecked by an insensitive coat of bright blue paint. The Cranky Preservationist made a video about that.
