"Welcome to the new Old West. @pioneertownmotel is a dusty, single-story inn with 20 rooms in a remote community in the Southern California desert. The boulders, the sand and the Joshua trees make the landscape in the area look otherworldly alongside a replicated 19th-century western town, which includes a saloon and a trading post. Founded in 1946 by a group of Hollywood types who were tired of traveling far away to film westerns, #Pioneertown is having something of a renaissance, thanks to an influx of artists and entrepreneurs. The unincorporated community is so small that if you address parcels with someone's first name, they'll arrive at the right place. But for at least one longtime resident, it's getting a little too crowded. Visit the link in our profile to see more photos by @davidwalterbanks for @nytimesfashion." By nytimes on Instagram.
