“Four dollars for a cup of coffee?” gasps Young Turks director Stephen Seemayer in the Los Angeles Times’ July 30, 2014, cover story. “It better have crystal meth in it!”

Seemayer, who is now at work on a new documentary called Tales of the American, remembers living downtown when a cup of joe was a nickel at Philippe’s and a 3,000-sq. ft. studio cost $150 a month.

Times reporter Marisa Gerber and photographer Jabin Botsford take a look at the rapidly changing Arts District.
