Santee Alley was once a paradise of garment industry samples and seconds. Now it is a place where inferior garbage from china is sold for prices higher than amazon.

This really isn't the Garment district but more like stores that you would see in Tijuana. There are about six or seven stores that are repeated throughout selling the same thing over and over again.

They literally have everything that you can think of within a one mile radius. People were everywhere. It is located in the fashion district and a little seedy but if you go while the sun is out you should be fine.

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
