18th Street gang graffiti - January 1, 2010

LOS ANGELES – The 18th Street gang in Los Angeles, that dates back to the 1960s, has approximately 20 different neighborhood sets scattered throughout the County in the San Fernando Valley, Northeast LA, Pico Union area of LA, City of Cudahy, Inglewood and South LA. One of the smaller and lesser know varrios claims Broadway & 7th Street in downtown Los Angeles and have been there for over 20 years. This click is not a neighborhood gang by traditional standards, but more of a transitory group where members converge, meet, do business and socialize. They do not have a common territory or turf but operate within a small location that has low population of residents but high commercial population during business hours. On New Years morning I made a rare siting of their graffiti right on the southwest corner of Broadway & 7th Street.

  3. Downtown Moe

    18s used to be active in the 198o’s on Broadway and 7th Streets when the Arcades were there. They used to live in Units above the commericial Units on the Ground.

    Downtown back in the 1980’s was run down with Drugs and Graffitti.

    Down Town L.A has always been a gathering point for Gangs from South Central, East L.A, and surrounding areas, becasue of the Old Movie Theaters and Arcades.

    All thats gone now……………

    i think gangs in general have died down, its only new generation of either family members or blankosiates trying to keep there hoods alive and make a name for themselves, reality is all gang members are just fighting for survival just like any one else, seriously what good will it do to be broke no food to eat, no place to sleep and trying to gang bang, it doesnt make sense! were not getting any better here, and gang banging is not going to all of a sutton jump up like it was back on my days late 80’s and early 90’s those were the toughest years in all of L.A. neighborhoods, i know and speak only cause i seen it with my own eyes.
    keep kids of streets, more alternative programs and funds for jobs will keep any member to be succesful and go get that money that we all dream about of having things! feel me?
    BLACK AND THE BROWN UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!
    GOD BLESS.

    How come none of the “Chicano” rappers ever claim 18th St? They always claim “Sureno” or “13”. What gang is the biggest rival or threat to 18th St?

  22. Norteno4life

    roll up to 54th and Vermont? what so you can throw shoes at me? so we can see the box you lil bald blank live in? you gonna have Officer Crackerjack there to arrest me? so 18st is tight with la policia. hangen, bangen, slangen, flippen, snitchen, testifying. so thats how you scraps roll. the car show did happen. lil homie kicked your boyfriend in the head so many times his white converse turned red. we got them hangen on the light pole in the heart of 38st. why you always saying cencal said this and nortes said that. admit it you wanna be a northern soldado not a Smell.A. smurf. 18st biggest threat is lil snitch menance cause he put everybodys business all over the block.
