Yesterday I took a tour of the American Apparel factory with Zach and Liya. It's down on Alameda and 7th Street, just East of downtown Los Angeles. I arrived about 45 minutes early, so I decided to take a drive. On Google Maps, I noticed an area on the other side of the river named "Brooklyn Heights", which I thought was interesting, since that's the name of the neighborhood where I live in New York. I drove over there, and it turned out to be a little area of Boyle Heights, a predominantly Mexican neighborhood. I drove around for twenty minutes, looking at the murals which decorated many of the streetcorners, and then I turned around and headed back downtown.
