On April 10, 2011, streets from Boyle Heights to Downtown Los Angeles will be closed to cars and open for walkers, joggers, and bicyclists for Los Angeles' second annual CicLAvia. It's a chance for Angelenos to get to know their city, make friends, get some exercise, and live one day without the stress and environmental hazards of driving a car.

We've listed these ten historic buildings in order from east to west on the CicLAvia route, but whether you walk, bike, run, scooter, roller-skate, or skateboard the route, you can check them out in any direction!

Note that this is not an exhaustive list of all the great historic buildings you’ll see that day. There are even more that we hope to cover soon, and even some excellent contemporary buildings, too. If we've left out your favorite historic building on the route, please tell us about it in the comments below! Also, some of these are better documented than others -- help us fill in the details!

(We use the word "historic" here in a vernacular, not necessarily official, sense. Many of these are officially declared L.A. City Historic-Cultural Monuments [LAHCM - noted below] and some of them are just great-looking older buildings.)
