To the Untapped Cities community:

After the announcement of the all-new Untapped Cities, we’re excited about starting off our new City Spotlight series today where we focus on an exciting metropolis! For the next weeks, we’ll have a new article on Los Angeles daily in our cities category.  With our strong home base in NYC, we at Untapped Cities thought it was time to look west at one of the most ethnically diverse areas in the country.

With over 15 “Angelenos” reporting from the City of Angels, we bring you the most “untapped” L.A. content from California’s largest city and one of the world’s most populous metropolitan areas.

A sampling of what’s to come: the abandoned landscape of LAX airport, reliving the golden age of Hollywood at the LA Theatre, Art and New Tech in the Cleantech Corridor, the Echoes West music festival, Art Deco downtown, The Museum of Jurassic Technology, LA’s Modernist architectural heritage and much more.

To set the mood, we open today with a New Yorker’s take on the city and the unexpected nature preserve of Vista Hermosa Park!
