The NELA Riverfront Youth Voices student producers created digital murals of their neighborhood and the places that are meaningful to them. Each mural contains 3 to 4 hot spots and a brief description below of these places and their significance to themselves and their community. Click on the image at the bottom to view the mural.
In my mural I have 10 different hot spots. My first hot spot is Elysian valley because I grew up there and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else. It's so peaceful. My second hot spot is Rick's In & Out Drive in. I choose Rick's because its close to whereI live and they have the best burgers in Los Angeles, I grew up eating at Rick's. Wong's Wok Chinese food is my third hot spot, I love this place. This is the only place I eat Chinese food, the food is always fresh and super good. Everyone that lives in Elysian Valley will say it's the best Chinese place to eat. The Taco Spot in Eagle Rock is my fourth hot spot. I selected this as my hot spot because it's the best Mexican restaurant in Eagle Rock. Every Sunday after church my family and I always go and eat there, it's now a tradition.
I selected these hot spots because each of them means something special to me. My hot spots are important part in my neighborhood because I grew up going to these places and they just bring back good memories whenever I visit them. My favorite part of the mural are the pictures I took at Nomad Gallery. I got to explore different kinds of objects and capture awesome photos while I was there. Look for the slide show embedded in the mural.
