CHARLES PHOENIX MADE UNION STATION COOL FOR A NIGHT
As if the fabulous Union Station in downtown LA wasn’t fun ENOUGH, our friend, the colorful Charles Phoenix, made it a night to remember! Charles has become The Ambassador of Los Angeles – he loves everything about the city – past, present, and future – and he has the vintage slides to prove it! Charles took his standing room only audience on a historical visual tour of downtown –including Chinatown and Little Tokyo, Olvera Street, Clifton’s Cafeteria, and many places that just aren’t around any more. He drew a colorful and varied crowd – unlike the frazzled train passengers with luggage walking by. Of course Union Station is a gorgeous vintage building and worth a visit if you haven’t seen it. It’s in the process of revitalization and will soon have cool new places to eat, drink, and socialize.
