96/365 – The Final Stop

Back in Milan for one day before returning to LA, we concentrated on two areas we hadn’t seen in our first visit: the Fashion District, or “Quadrilatero della Moda,” considered one of the most, if not the most important fashion district in the world; and the “Navigli,” named after the Naviglio Grande canal, an up-and-coming neighborhood with lots of small shops and restaurants. I’m sharing some photos from the area.

Venice Canal ~~

One of the entrances to the Venice Canal Historic District, in the Venice Beach section of Los Angeles. The district is noteworthy for its man-made canals built in 1905 by developer Abbot Kinney as part of his “Venice of America” plan. There are six canals in the Venice Canals Walkway and approximately three-hundred-and-seventy homes fronting them. I will do a post on the Canals Walkway soon.
