The Other Downtown LA

From Main we Spring to Broadway, and over the Hill to Olive. Wouldn't it be Grand if we could Hope to pick a Flower that grows on Figueroa?

The city of Huntington Park was incorporated in 1906. At some point in its history apparently it was decided that they should borrow some street names from Downtown LA and use them in order. You can find them here, just a few miles southeast of Downtown.

What's particularly odd is that the real Broadway is still running south just three miles west of this one.
