MADANG is a three-level shopping and entertainment complex located just north of Wilshire Boulevard on the western side of Western Avenue.
The library is named after Pío de Jesús Pico, the last Mexican governor of Alta California. He died in 1894.
Public libraries in Los Angeles will be closed on Thanksgiving and the next day, Friday.
This Purple Line metro station is named after the intersection of Wilshire Boulevard and Western Avenue (the subway is on the northeast corner) and in 2013, after Alfred Hoyun Song, the first Asian-American politician to be elected as state senator to the California State Assembly.
Located at the intersection of Wilshire and Western, the Wiltern Theatre and Pellissier Building is an Art Deco building decorated with blue-green terra cotta tiles. It was originally built in 1931, called the Warner Brothers Western Theater, and was designed as a vaudeville theater. Today, the Wiltern serves as a live-performance venue, hosting concerts and comedy shows.
Located at Wilshire Boulevard and Vermont Avenue, it is served by the Red Line and the Purple Line.
The establishment of an SMTown Museum in Los Angeles was announced in 2013, with the building being purchased in July. The space was formerly occupied by the Orchid Club on the southwest corner of 6th Street & Oxford Avenue, a few steps away from the CVS, the Metro subway station, and the Madang Mall.
In addition to the Pio Pico Library, another LAPL branch that serves what is still considered the Koreatown area of Los Angeles is the Wilshire Library. It doesn’t have as extensive a collection of Korean books or resources, but it’s the next best branch. (The Central Library in downtown LA also has Korean materials.)
