While North Inglewood's charming, sylvan avenues played stunt double for the Yourtown, Midwest backdrop of Wayne's World, much of the city's residual grittiness reflects the loss of its adored Lakers to the Staples Center (Map 9). But if Laker great Magic Johnson has his way, Inglewood will be just fine. Johnson gets the assist for bringing a burst of commercial energy to the area. Grabbing a selection from Randy's Donuts before you hop on your plane at LAX is the best way to show whoever you're visiting that you care (about tasty breakfast sweets). True friends make sure at least one is maple-frosted.
This area is an odd counterbalance to the acres of condominiums covering the areas adjacent to LAX and nearby industrial centers: Downtown Inglewood's pedestrian-friendly Market Street is a veritable wormhole back in time, with mom-and-pop establishments you won't find in the malls elsewhere in the city.

>Pann's Diner for the best breakfast around. Zahra's Books and Things is a great local-owned business specializing in African-American books and has great special events and readings.
