Tale of Two Sides The 6600 Block of Hollywood Blvd

As Hollywood continues to grow and redevelop I thought it would be interesting to show the transition process. This transition is clearly prevalent in the differences of the type of restaurants, stores, and entertainment venues that reside on the north side of the 6600 block of famed Hollywood Blvd. versus those on south side of the street. Besides Kress (restaurant & nightclub), there are really no name brand stores or modern upscale venues on the south side, but instead the buildings are still occupied by an abundance of tattoo shops, smoke shops, costume stores, and other "mom and pop" retail spots. This is in contrast to the north side, which is flourishing with several newer high end restaurants, name brand retailers, & modern updated architecture. North Side of the Streeet
