Now here's a creative (and green) approach to adding some magic to a street. Recently installed street lamps on AEG's L.A. Live campus in downtown are something straight from pop culture. "They came from the set of 'The Chronicles of Narnia,'" explained blogdowntown's Eric Richardson, who follows L.A. Live developments closely. He notes that the Narnia film franchise is "produced by the Phillip Anschutz-owned Walden Media. Anschutz, of course, is also the 'A' in AEG."

The Ritz Carlton and J.W. Marriot hotels, both at L.A. Live, are a month away from opening. Last night was the first time the interiors were seen by the public, when doors opened for the City of Hope gala fundraiser.
