Byzantine-Latino Quarter sign, Normandie Avenue and Pico Boulevard, Los Angeles

In Los Angeles in some parts of Los Angeles it's all about getting along. Take the Byzantine-Latino Quarter, a corner of the Pico-Union district where Greeks, Mexicans and Central Americans do just that, and you hear a lot of Korean on the streets too. This area used to be known as "Greek Town" for its concentration of Greek residents and businesses, but things change. Community groups designated the area the Byzantine-Latino Quarter in 1997 and the Greeks only come back on Sunday, to attend the liturgy at Saint Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral, still here and thriving. And there are Greek restaurants of course.

On the side of a public storage building you find the angels and the message - "We are each of us angels with one wing. We can only fly embracing each other."
