This is the Village Green, home of the two oldest existing homes in Palm Springs. This area is also home to many wonderful restaurants; LuLu and Las Casuelas are directly across the street. These two restaurants represent the two predominant architectural styles: Mid Century Modern and Spanish Colonial Revival.

This is the old Welwood Murray Library with the Spanish Colonial Revival building, La Plaza de las Flores, in the background, a building  with a soaring atrium and beautiful fountains.
