Wall Street in Los Angeles

Many people have heard of Wall Street in New York, but who's heard of Wall Street in Los Angeles? Wall Street, LA is a narrow street that runs from the lower edge of Little Tokyo into the Toy District.

I just wanted to share some of the scenes from the city. The photo below is a view looking down Wall Street from Casa Heiwa. (Click on the photo for a closer look.)



Wall Street is always bustling with activity during the day. Whether you're looking for inexpensive wholesale Hello Kitties, Red Bull, or DVDs, this is the place to be.

I usually get my lunch from a truck (ie "roach coach") that parks on Wall Street offering some of the best Mexican cuisine. Try their tortas (Mexican sandwiches) for $3 -- they're pretty good!

This is also Skid Row. So at night, you'll find many of the homeless (urban campers) sleeping in the streets. That's part of life in downtown.

Given the conspicuous absence of a Great (or even Mediocre) Wall, I can't help but wonder: what's the source of the street's name?
