Aliso Village Housing Projects destroyed: Now Pueblo del Sol

alisovIn 1999 the City of Los Angeles began the demolition of the Aliso Village Housing projects located on the west side of where the 101 Hollywood Freeway and 10 San Bernardino Freeway intersect. This was where the East LA Dukes, a Hispanic street gang, where located for many years. Many thought that the gang along with surrounding gangs, Primera Flats, Cuatro Flats and The Mob Crew would have a lesser presence in the community, but not only did the ELA gang reclaim the community after construction, rivalries with other neighborhoods continued.

The new 29-acre parcel is called Pueblo Del Sol and the footage below was shot on May 9, 2003 during the reconstruction phase of the project. The new construction is operated by a private company, the McCormack Baron Ragan Corporation, but administered by the Housing Authority of the City of Los Angeles.

Through a HOPE VI demolition grant program introduced by the Clinton administration in 1993, the Housing and Urban Development provided funds for the demolition of Aliso Village and the construction of Pueblo del Sol. Pueblo del Sol’s design consists of detached and semi-detached single family houses. The project reduced the number of units at the site by 30%.

    First of all Aliso Village has always been Primera Flats. Primera Flats had that land before Aliso was even built. we controlled the projects. In the 80’s alot of other hoods came up trying to catch some fame by claiming Aliso Village as there hood. At one point there was Primera Flats, Al Capone, TMC, East Coast Crips(the only black gang in Boyle Heights), AV Fellas, Rascals, and ELA 13. Primera Flats throughout the 80’s smashed on all of them. Flats Kicked out Al Capone. Now theyre in the SGV in Covina. Flats kicked out the East Coast Crips and sent them back to South Central where the West Side Primera Flats still smashes on them. ELA 13 got kicked out and sent up the hill. TMC got kicked out along with the East Coast Crips and is now from 1st street to 3rd street. TMC which stands for The Mobb Crew used to be clicked up with the East Coast Crips and used to be known as The Mexican Crips. AV fellas and Rascals disappeared. they ended up being forced to either stop banging or get into Primera Flats or ELA 13. Now even though its called Pueblo del Sol it still belongs to Primera Flats

    • Clarenciero

      Still for getting Clarence Street Locos. Thats was the only big street that ran through the projects. Most of the gangs claim Aliso Village cuz they got along

    • Solo ACP

      Primera Flats got kicked out of Aliso a long time ago by all the other gangs, they use to have to sneak around Aliso. The got kicked out up to the top of the hill by the big clock on 1st street. Al Capone, TMC, ECC, ELA Dukes ran the projects in th 80’s & 90’s. Any Flats that lived in Aliso would have there homes blasted on all the time by all the other gangs thats why they had to sneak around.

    • crazy ass mob gang

  12. Aliso Village

    I grew up in Aliso Village and remember all the gangs there. My first boyfriend was “Joker” from Al Capone and had a “Crip” member live right across the street from us. They usto hang out in the “patio” in the middle of the night playing their music so loud and you couldn’t say anything for the fear of being shot. And trust me.. music was not the only things you would hear… ughh still makes my stomach turn

    • Fredo

      I also grew up in Aliso Village. I remember Al Capone – Arturo (Main Person), Chino, Indio, Joker -not really, and others. I used to hang out with them on Via Portola. Those were the days. We moved out when the fight broke out between Primera and Al Capone.

    Get over yourself. I remember there was a time when Crips ran the place. Almost fights evernight – in front of Utah elementart (nights of course). Then in 1984 – 1986 little gangs start popping up – TMC/the rascals/alcapone/etc. and there would be crazy football games. I still remember Eddie braking his leg at a game. Those were the good old days. What the hell is Foos – no wonder you still in AV sucker or is it called plaza. Stop texting and start writing – show some smarts on the net.

  19. East sida rida

    shut your bitch ass up u dont know shit which esekilla hood ran us out ? when us and the al capones was the only 2 end there ECC

  20. stipes

    gangs r dumb

  21. FREDO

    Yes, gangs are dumb – but if you live in the hood, what can you do. I used to hang around Al Capone in the early days – Early to mid 80’s. They were more in to the Coke business. Not so much bangers – but when Primera started getting crazy in Via Portola Al Capone did not back down. I do remember Crips hanging out with some Al Capone Member – mostly Indio (Indio would fight with EEC in the past and never backed down – he earned their respect) and Bebe. If you were there in the early 80’s you know the crowds that used to hang out in front of Utah Elemantary at night. I still remember going home to via portola and a fight (gun fight had just started) – Some guy – Herro?Lupe? (white guy blue eyes) – from Al Capone dropped an uzzi in front of us – thats when we decided to move. That same night Primer crashed a car in to a few cars in the parking lot – the bad things was that Al capone had no cars parked there just cars from hard working folks. And Yes they were good old days growing up and seeing all the madness. I am glad that I experienced this childhood and will never forget Arturo from AL CAPONE his wife DEDE and son. RIP Arturo – El Mero Mero De Al Capone. The 80’s were the Sh*t.

    • Solo ACP

      Hey Fredo. This is Solo from Al Capone…I started banging in the late 80’s-early 90’s. Dede, Arturo, N-owl, Angie, Huerra, Lety, MartaRey are my primos. I probably never met you while living in Aliso but its good to know my family made some history.

    • bashful

      I REMEMBER BACK IN DA DAY 1980-1990 WAS THE BEST TIMES AFTER THAT ALL WENT TO SHIT.

  22. MoRA Toriun

    Someone told me this new housing projects is gonna have a starbucks and a gay bar.

  23. I dont bang I bust a good ryme

    Here is the truth about the gangs in the projects. No reason to lie, no bias. Here is the truth. PF is the first gang that controlled the projects. And they were the first kicked out. they had a little corner of the hood. they could not roam no where else. ECC controlled many patios , 1st stores, and middle of the projects. East LA dukes had a corner over there by Utah school. TMC got booted to Pico Aliso. Cuatro flats was Pico Stoners. Clearance street was small gang that beefed with gangs up the hill like tinyboys , street boys. Alcopone got high on their on supply and lost territory, Pf came back in 90’s when the crips was being kicked out by housing authority and charging them with trespassing. bottom line there were always a member from one of the gangs in the hood, they all grew up together playing football and basketball. alot of those guys are blood related. Like “polo” and “bandit” from different gangs. Where white boy LALO? LUPE? he was a crip , then alcapone then flat.
    at the end, drugs came in and wipe it all out.

    • clarenciero

      got some of it right but there were always cuatro flats pico stoners became pico gardens and then got into cuatro.Clarence street stoners were not small till some got into tmc and they didn’t want to be clarence street locos and cuz they moved up the hill to the alley by jims

    • East sida rida

      whoever you are its good that someone keeping it real. cause every gang down there claim they ran us out but the pigs helped them out. Im a gee that moved down there in 69. so every thing you said is the truth. you stayed in which part of the hood?

  24. i dont bang i bust a good ryme

    Bottom line is, Aliso Viallage was the only project in the U.S.A with more then four gangs that roamed the streets. And from “rough hoods.com” Aliso Village was ranked one of the deadliest in America. And, Aliso Village is the only project in Los angeles to be demolished. So, fellow residents, put you guns down and give Aliso Village a SALUT. And the good side, Aliso was the most Diverse housing project on the west coast. So stop beefing Alisoians! Pf, TMC, ECC, Alcapone, Clearance, Dukes, CF and all the little sub gangs in the hood. It was all about territory and you banged from what blocked you grew up on. There were Mexican Crips, and also Black Ese. Does not matter, my mother knew your mother and we all probably ate free lunch at Utah in the summer! What eve happpen to the “twins?” Dukes?

  25. i dont bang i bust a good ryme

    Alisosonians! What eva happen to “Eddie”? or Ed rock? To all Alisosonians, At the end of your message give a “Whateva Happen?” shout out.
