Downtown Los Angeles has undergone a major transformation during the last decade. Following the passage of the Adaptive Reuse Ordinance in 1999, a swell of ground-up and historic rehabilitation projects kicked off and gained momentum through the last decade. Downtown L.A. now has over 40,000 permanent residents and a daytime population of over 500,000, spread throughout several communities and neighborhoods. But this wave of revitalization unfortunately has not resulted in public transit options that can effectively circulate these residents and workers throughout the day and night.

To fill this transportation void, a modern streetcar system is being proposed as the ideal medium to connect Downtown’s abundance of cultural and entertainment destinations, residential and office buildings, and future developments. Streetcars are major urban and economic development tools because they provide investors, developers, and potential renters/buyers assurance that their offices, properties, and projects will have permanent access to public transit. In addition, a streetcar system in Downtown L.A. will close the geographic and “travel distance” gap between the area’s neighborhoods. Currently it is simply too arduous to walk across Downtown from its edges, and parking multiple times throughout the course of a day can be expensive, cumbersome, and time-consuming.


Larger than a bus, but smaller than a light-rail vehicle, streetcars run on fixed rails embedded in public streets, moving with the flow of traffic. They have proven to be serious economic development tools, spurring substantial investment and community development in numerous U.S. cities – such as Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, and Tampa, FL. Streetcar systems have proven to be economic development tools because they deliver pedestrian traffic that assures developers, investors, and cities that their projects will have high levels of street-front and ground floor activity – which are critical criteria for commercial and retail tenants. These investments are targeted to capture increased foot traffic sales, and take advantage of increases in location desirability and connectivity to transit networks. Modern streetcars are designed to integrate with existing urban environments and street corridors, and do not require dedicated rights-of-way.


Downtown L.A.’s current transportation system does not provide the “last mile” of transit connections needed to support and stimulate extensive pedestrian activity. Downtown has many transit options, but they do not provide efficient service between major destinations and transit networks and this has created a gap in that “last mile” of service. Transit challenges arise when people attend many events or venues and try to circulate between them. Despite Downtown’s compact size, it’s difficult to have dinner in South Park or at L.A. LIVE and then attend a performance at the Walt Disney Concert Hall without driving or taking a taxi. More simple things, like buying groceries at Downtown’s only major grocery store, Ralph’s, and then getting them to a loft in the Historic Core is difficult to accomplish without an automobile. As a result, people continue to use their cars to get around Downtown L.A.


In 2009, Downtown Los Angeles property owners, businesses leaders, and civic stakeholders founded , and the “goLAstreetcar” initiative with the shared vision of designing, planning and operating a modern streetcar system in Downtown Los Angeles. Los Angeles Streetcar, Inc., is modeled after the successful public/private partnerships that built modern streetcar systems in Portland, Oregon, and Seattle, Washington. This initiative has been generating steady support for the project, including embarking on a formal environmental review process. A strong argument in favor of a Downtown L.A. streetcar system is the area’s integration with existing and future regional transit connections. Over 100 bus lines, at least five existing and future rail connections, and a number of freeways all converge on the downtown area. And within downtown, the streetcar has the potential to increase urban circulation, connect neighborhoods, and make access to cultural, entertainment, and recreational sites much easier. Despite the preconception many may hold, modern streetcars are clean, quiet, and sustainable modes of transportation. They are powered by electricity, emit zero local-source emissions, and produce minimal noise during operation. Other cities that have implemented modern streetcar systems have experienced significant system-wide ridership increases, as streetcars increase the urban connectivity of regional transit networks.


While the current economic climate presents many challenges for development projects, the streetcar can be seen as a catalyst to stimulate long-term investment and growth. Current cost projections estimate the system will cost 0-5 million to build and between – million annually to operate. Many community members and leaders believe the streetcar will be the critical element needed to foster a vibrant, walkable urban core.

Construction of streetcar systems are not technically challenging, yet Downtown L.A. has an aging infrastructure of utility lines, roadways, pipes, and other underground-infrastructure that will require significant preparation. Other cities have faced this challenge by designing tracks to fit into shallow trenches (roughly 12 to 18 inches deep) that minimally disturb the ground and existing utilities. Design, engineering, and construction of modern streetcar systems typically take 2-3 years to complete.

The big challenge is finding an effective balance of public/private dollars. With an estimated cost of 0-5 million, a blend of public and private funding is being identified to find the best compromise and partnership between all stakeholders. Contributions from private partners cannot be so high that it no longer incentivizes their involvement, effectively stalling the progress of the project. The costs to property owners, tenants, and residents needs to be negotiated effectively to ensure the partnership can move ahead with the remaining funds coming from federal, state, and local sources.

Federal funding for streetcar initiatives nationwide has dramatically increased with the change in administrations – over 4 million was allocated to streetcars via federal stimulus dollars (TIGER Grants), with another 5 million being made available through the Federal Transportation Agency’s Section 5309 Exempt Grant program. To compete for these and future funds, the Downtown L.A. streetcar project has formed partnerships with several L.A. City Departments, the Community Redevelopment Agency, METRO, State and Congressional representatives, and numerous civic and business organizations. With this level of support, the is making progress to bring a streetcar system to Downtown within a few short years.

Andy Warhol was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He was the fourth child of Ondrej Warhola and Ulja, whose first child was born in their homeland and died before their migration to the U.S. His parents were working-class immigrants from Mik (now called Mikov), in northeastern Slovakia, then part of Austro-Hungarian Empire. Warhol’s father immigrated to the US in 1914, and his mother joined him in 1921, after the death of Andy Warhol’s grandparents. Warhol’s father worked in a coal mine. The family lived at 55 Beelen Street and later at 3252 Dawson Street in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The family was Byzantine Catholic and attended St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church. Andy Warhol had two older brothers, Jn and Pavol, who were born in today’s Slovakia. Pavol’s son, James Warhola, became a successful children’s book illustrator.

In third grade, Warhol had chorea, a nervous system disease that causes involuntary movements of the extremities, which is believed to be a complication of scarlet fever and causes skin pigmentation blotchiness. He became a hypochondriac, developing a fear of hospitals and doctors. Often bed-ridden as a child, he became an outcast among his school-mates and bonded strongly with his mother. At times when he was confined to bed, he drew, listened to the radio and collected pictures of movie stars around his bed. Warhol later described this period as very important in the development of his personality, skill-set and preferences.

Early career

Warhol showed early artistic talent and studied commercial art at the School of Fine Arts at Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (now Carnegie Mellon University). In 1949, he moved to New York City and began a successful career in magazine illustration and advertising. During the 1950s, he gained fame for his whimsical ink drawings of shoe advertisements. These were done in a loose, blotted-ink style, and figured in some of his earliest showings at the Bodley Gallery in New York. With the concurrent rapid expansion of the record industry and the introduction of the vinyl record, Hi-Fi, and stereophonic recordings, RCA Records hired Warhol, along with another freelance artist, Sid Maurer, to design album covers and promotional materials.

Campbell’s Soup I (1968)


His first one-man art-gallery exhibition as a fine artist was on July 9, 1962, in the Ferus Gallery of Los Angeles. The exhibition marked the West Coast debut of pop art. Andy Warhol’s first New York solo Pop exhibit was hosted at Eleanor Ward’s Stable Gallery November 6-24, 1962. The exhibit included the works Marilyn Diptych, 100 Soup Cans, 100 Coke Bottles and 100 Dollar Bills. At the Stable Gallery exhibit, the artist met for the first time John Giorno who would star in Warhol’s first film, Sleep, in 1963.[citation needed]

It was during the 1960s that Warhol began to make paintings of iconic American products such as Campbell’s Soup Cans and Coca-Cola bottles, as well as paintings of celebrities such as Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, Troy Donahue, Muhammad Ali and Elizabeth Taylor. He founded “The Factory”, his studio during these years, and gathered around himself a wide range of artists, writers, musicians, and underground celebrities. He began producing prints using the silkscreen method. His work became popular and controversial.

Among the imagery tackled by Warhol were dollar bills, celebrities and brand name products. He also used as imagery for his paintings newspaper headlines or photographs of mushroom clouds, electric chairs, and police dogs attacking civil rights protesters. Warhol also used Coca Cola bottles as subject matter for paintings. He had this to say about Coca Cola:

What’s great about this country is that America started the tradition where the richest consumers buy essentially the same things as the poorest. You can be watching TV and see Coca Cola, and you know that the President drinks Coca Cola, Liz Taylor drinks Coca Cola, and just think, you can drink Coca Cola, too. A coke is a coke and no amount of money can get you a better coke than the one the bum on the corner is drinking. All the cokes are the same and all the cokes are good. Liz Taylor knows it, the President knows it, the bum knows it, and you know it.

New York’s Museum of Modern Art hosted a Symposium on pop art in December 1962 during which artists like Warhol were attacked for “capitulating” to consumerism. Critics were scandalized by Warhol’s open embrace of market culture. This symposium set the tone for Warhol’s reception. Throughout the decade it became more and more clear that there had been a profound change in the culture of the art world, and that Warhol was at the center of that shift.[citation needed]

Campbell’s Tomato Juice Box (1964)

A pivotal event was the 1964 exhibit The American Supermarket, a show held in Paul Bianchini’s Upper East Side gallery. The show was presented as a typical U.S. small supermarket environment, except that everything in it from the produce, canned goods, meat, posters on the wall, etc. was created by six prominent pop artists of the time, among them the controversial (and like-minded) Billy Apple, Mary Inman, and Robert Watts. Warhol’s painting of a can of Campbell’s soup cost ,500 while each autographed can sold for . The exhibit was one of the first mass events that directly confronted the general public with both pop art and the perennial question of what art is (or of what is art and what is not).[citation needed]

As an advertisement illustrator in the 1950s, Warhol used assistants to increase his productivity. Collaboration would remain a defining (and controversial) aspect of his working methods throughout his career; in the 1960s, however, this was particularly true. One of the most important collaborators during this period was Gerard Malanga. Malanga assisted the artist with producing silkscreens, films, sculpture, and other works at “The Factory”, Warhol’s aluminum foil-and-silver-paint-lined studio on 47th Street (later moved to Broadway). Other members of Warhol’s Factory crowd included Freddie Herko, Ondine, Ronald Tavel, Mary Woronov, Billy Name, and Brigid Berlin (from whom he apparently got the idea to tape-record his phone conversations).

During the ’60s, Warhol also groomed a retinue of bohemian eccentrics upon whom he bestowed the designation “Superstars”, including Edie Sedgwick, Viva, Ultra Violet, and Candy Darling. These people all participated in the Factory films, and some like Berlin remained friends with Warhol until his death. Important figures in the New York underground art/cinema world, such as writer John Giorno and film-maker Jack Smith, also appear in Warhol films of the 1960s, revealing Warhol’s connections to a diverse range of artistic scenes during this period.

Attempted assassination

On June 3, 1968, Valerie Solanas shot Warhol and art critic and curator Mario Amaya at Warhol’s studio. Before the shooting, Solanas had been a marginal figure in the Factory scene. She founded a “group” called S.C.U.M. (Society for Cutting Up Men) and authored the S.C.U.M. Manifesto, a separatist feminist attack on patriarchy. Over the years, Solanas’ manifesto has found a following. Solanas appears in the 1968 Warhol film I, A Man. Earlier on the day of the attack, Solanas had been turned away from the Factory after asking for the return of a script she had given to Warhol. The script, apparently, had been misplaced.

Amaya received only minor injuries and was released from the hospital later the same day. Warhol however, was seriously wounded by the attack and barely survived (surgeons opened his chest and massaged his heart to help stimulate its movement again). He suffered physical effects for the rest of his life. The shooting had a profound effect on Warhol’s life and art.

Solanas was arrested the day after the assault. By way of explanation, she said that “He had too much control over my life,” following which she was eventually sentenced to three years under the control of the department of corrections. After the shooting, the Factory scene became much more tightly controlled, and for many this event brought the “Factory 60s” to an end. The shooting was mostly overshadowed in the media due to the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy two days later.

Warhol had this to say about the attack: “Before I was shot, I always thought that I was more half-there than all-there  I always suspected that I was watching TV instead of living life. People sometimes say that the way things happen in movies is unreal, but actually it’s the way things happen in life that’s unreal. The movies make emotions look so strong and real, whereas when things really do happen to you, it’s like watching television  you don’t feel anything. Right when I was being shot and ever since, I knew that I was watching television. The channels switch, but it’s all television.”


Andy Warhol and Jimmy Carter in 1977

Compared to the success and scandal of Warhol’s work in the 1960s, the 1970s proved a much quieter decade, as Warhol became more entrepreneurial. According to Bob Colacello, Warhol devoted much of his time to rounding up new, rich patrons for portrait commissions including Shah of Iran Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, his wife Empress Farah Pahlavi, his sister Princess
