This includes providing a historical overview and explaining how this neighborhood fits in to a bigger picture of Los Angeles.
What are the places in your neighborhood that are especially significant? DO NOT simply look at other guide-books to see which restaurants or clubs are the most reputable.

What makes these locations so important and why might they often be overlooked?
