Angeles (also known as East LA) sits east of Downtown yet boasts a small-town feel.
It is filled with a great deal of enthusiasm and life, and is a wonderful mix
of diversity, culture, and tradition.East
LA is a mixture of Victorian, Spanish, and more recent architecture. Those
regal Victorian homes may not be on every corner but are sights to be seen when
you do run across them. The hillsides of City Terrace have more Spanish
Colonial Revival architecture with some commanding views of the San Gabriel
Mountains and the downtown skyline.
Neighborhoods: East LA, Boyle
Heights, Boston Heights, Brooklyn Heights, Hazard, Wellington Heights,

Location: East Los Angeles
sits between Downtown LA and Monterey Park/Montebello. The Metro Gold Line
Light Rail takes you from Union Station, past Little Tokyo, then straight
through Boyle Heights and East LA down 1st and 3rd
streets. It has freeway access to the 10, 710, 60, and 5 freeways. On the east
side of town is East Los Angeles College.Definition of where East LA begins has
been debated and redefined since the early 21st century. Echo Park and Silver
Lake were once considered to be part of East LA, but today’s definition is
anything that sits east of Downtown and the LA River.
