Save Olvera Street!: A Vital Part of LA History in Need
The oldest Mexican restaurant in LA, La Golondrina Cafe, and the street it resides on, Olvera Street, located in Downtown Los Angeles are currently in trouble! La Golondrina Cafe is in the midst of a lengthy legal battle with the city of Los Angeles, having been prevented from opening because of a plumbing issue that they say the
city was supposed to repair. To this day the historic restaurant has remained closed, leaving Olvera Street and the many businesses in the area struggling. What was once a vibrant Mexican marketplace full of cafes, street vendors, and gift shops is now but a mere shell of its former self, slowly dying out by the loss of one of its central features.
