Petit Futé's opinion on UNION STATION

Vintage plate 2020

Los Angeles Central Station, whose construction was completed in 1939, is now too small for its 110,000 daily passengers. But the building, which successfully combines several styles (Art Deco, missionary style and peacock style - Streamline Moderne), is one of the greatest successes of Los Angeles' mythical architectural eclecticism; it quickly became one of California's favorite monuments. Its main architects, John Parkinson and Donald B. Parkinson, also drew the plans of the Los Angeles City Hall. The waiting room with oversized dimensions is adorned with sumptuous Art Deco chandeliers. Its frame seems to be wooden, but it is actually steel. Also note the ground floor of terracotta and marble. South of the main building, a magnificent restaurant, also dating back to 1939, was designed in the liner style by the famous architect of the American Southwest Mary Colter and includes decorative elements inspired by Navajo art. It was restored in 2017 and should soon reopen its doors. Many parts of the railway station, all more beautiful than others (including the old teller hall) are closed to the public and rented at private events or shooting events. Union Station was the scene of many films and TV series, such as Our Most Beautiful Years, Blade Runner or Pearl Harbor. The free guided tour allows you to browse the rooms closed to the public.

Magnifique gare
La gare est magnifique, il suffit de lever les yeux pour admirer les belles peintures et décorations. Plutôt bien fréquentée et haut lieu de passage : métro, train...

une station antique avec son grand hall, ses comptoirs en bois et ses sièges en cuir. Y faire un tour pendant votre ballade à Downtown. Un restaurant est même disponible à l'intérieur.

Très jolie gare, qui donne directement sur le lieu de naissance de Los Angeles. De quoi se dégourdir les jambes lorsque le train a une courte étape sur place.
