It was only a matter of time before the strip of Hollywood Boulevard between Hillhurst and Vermont avenues--where you'd go for a U-Haul rental or Goodwill duds--would begin to reflect the gentrifying neighborhood. The storefronts once occupied by traffic schools and tax offices are giving way to urbane restaurants and boutiques, many of them specializing in vintage or vintage-inspired goods that look right at home on young Los Feliz residents fixing up their 1920s-era duplexes and bungalow courts. The grit remains (there's still a topless bar), but the credit card parking meters aren't the only shiny new faces.
