A star was born when production studios relocated to Culver City in the early 1900s. Blending nostalgia with right-now trends, Culver City tugs on the heartstrings and pushes the envelope. Ice-skating rinks, tree-lined streets, and community theatres temper Culver City’s pool-sharking bars, bare-faced art galleries, and restaurants that sound best when their name is whispered. Even better, Downtown is reachable by public transit, but like most of LA, it’s still more convenient with a car. (Source Airbnb)
In the 1990s, Culver City launched a successful revitalization program in which it renovated its downtown as well as several shopping centers in the Sepulveda Boulevard corridor near Westfield Culver City. Around the same time, the relocation of Sony’s motion picture operations to the former MGM studios at Washington Boulevard and Overland Avenue brought much-needed jobs to the city. The influx of many art galleries and restaurants to the eastern part of the city, formally designated as the Culver City Art District, prompted The New York Times in 2007 to praise the new art scene and call Culver City a “nascent Chelsea.” In 2012 Roger Vincent of the Los Angeles Times said that, according to local observers, the city’s “reputation as a pedestrian-friendly destination with upscale restaurants, gastropubs and a thriving art scene is less than a decade old.” (Source Wikipedia)
