Glitz, glamour and grit, Los Angeles has it all. But behind the gloss and the sunshine we wondered what L.A. looks like to those who live within reach of Sunset Boulevard or the Hollywood Walk of Fame. To see the city through the eyes of its inhabitants, we invited a selection of writers, musicians, photographers, bloggers and chefs to share their most interesting and personal Instagram snaps of their beloved neighbourhood. Discover one of the world’s most diverse and dynamic metropolises in our unique Los Angeles Instagram photo gallery.
The Neighbourhood are a Cali-based rock band composed of vocalist Jesse Rutherford, guitarists Jeremy Freedman and Zach Abels, bassist Mikey Margott and drummer Brandon Fried. Listen to their music here. Instagram.com/thenbhd
