Everyone knows the Hancock Park, Miracle Mile, Windsor Square and Brookside communities…but on Sunday, February 22, the Greater Wilshire Neighborhood Council will sponsor a free, informal, one-hour tour of one of the area’s lesser-known neighborhoods – Sycamore Square. The area is bordered by Wilshire and Olympic, reaching east from La Brea to Citrus.
The tour theme is “Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow,” and tour leader Elizabeth Fuller – who moved to the neighborhood in 1991 and helped found the Sycamore Square Neighborhood Association in 2005 – will talk about the neighborhood’s origins, showcase the history and development of commercial stretches along La Brea Ave. and Wilshire Blvd., and introduce the neighborhood’s unique residential zoning pattern that fosters a multiplicity of generations and lifestyles.
The event is open to everyone; no advance reservations required. Meet at 2 p.m. at the NE corner of Sycamore and Olympic (the corner of the front lawn of Wilshire Crest School) to explore this historic, well-preserved, wonderfully diverse and livable community.Walking Tour of Sycamore Square Sunday, Feb 22, 2-3 pm Meet at NE corner of Sycamore and Olympic
