Mapping: The Banks of the Arroyo Seco
Students from the Los Feliz Charter School for the Arts (LFCSA) and the Living Museum Sycamore Grove are collaborating with Departures Youth Voices to document their exploration of the area and develop interactive tools that will become part of the Living Museum's community resources. Follow the students as they work with community residents and learn about the history of the neighborhood, urban planning, and placemaking.
Below are the student's maps and reflections of the field trip to the Sycamore Grove District in Highland Park. For most of them it was the first time they had spent time exploring the neighborhood. To read more about the trip click here.
"I went to Heritage Square and Sycamore Grove. Heritage Square is a museum, and Sycamore Grove is the neighborhood it is in. When we got there, we got to go inside old Victorian houses that got moved to Heritage Square right before they were going to be torn down. Inside the houses, we got to see a lot of amazing architecture you wouldn't usually see in the middle of L.A." --Isabella S.
"We saw the Arroyo Seco. Everything was beautiful in a rugged yet graceful way. I felt privileged to be able to see such a beautiful, forgotten part of history." --Noelani O.
"We saw a lot of old craftsman style houses, we also saw lots of murals, and chimneys made out of river rocks." --Samara G.
"Sycamore Grove is just your normal neighborhood but all of the landmarks, museums, and houses make the area amazing. When we went there I realized that more people should come here." --Madison L.
