The North and East Sections

Show Summary Details


Northeast Los Angeles occupies a corner of the original Pueblo of Los Angeles, and the southern part of Rancho San Rafael, oldest land grant in Alta (upper) California, dating from 1784. The intervening years have transformed the region into an urban residential section, broken by such metropolitan features as a large county hospital, a zoo, an anthropological museum, a university, and four much-frequented city parks. Streets crossing at oblique angles in the hilly terrain require a close watch for the markers. This chapter describes a tour of north and east Los Angeles, covering places such as Boyle Heights, Hollenbeck Park, Lincoln Park, and the Los Angeles Ostrich Farm.
