Park La Brea, bounded by 3rd Street on the north, Cochran Avenue on the east, 6th Street on the south, and Fairfax Avenue on the west, includes more than 4,000 apartments in both high-rise and garden-style structures. The buildings were designed in the early 1940's by architects Gordon Kaufmann and J. E. Stanton.
Photographer's caption reads, "Park La Brea was developed prior to World War II and has 4,231 units and approximately 10,000 residents. The design was modeled on the work of French architect Le Corbusier. Within the 176-acre Park La Brea complex all the streets eventually lead to Burnside Circle Park, here seen during the annual Art in the Park festival 2001."
