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%.

    I don’t know how I ended up on this page but I’ve been reading your stories. Much respect to all of you for what you been through. You all went through some crazy shit. I see there is alot of tension because you all recollect different accurances and thats understandable but yall need to squash that. Just be grateful you survived that sensless bullshit. I hope you all turned your lives around and are doing well…

    I’m not even going to get into all the net bangin going on on this topic ,but the fool ALCP needs to quit the fantasy talk. Everyone has had their strong moments in the AV but ALCP were never running things, I give more cred to ECC than you fools, I’ll give credit where its due I got shot by TMC but I still give it up they were down, ECC they held theirs for a minute, CF got riders but Capones are plain weak. Once a month you fools come out of hiding a would do a drive by, you never held down your side, or should I say Patio. I hate gangbanging and the whole lifestyle now, but I just couldnt handle reading the tall tales by the Capones on here. Off topic water balloon fights vs CF and State St were some firme memories.

    All I can say is that I was there in the “80’s”. I remember – once again – the EEC always having there night time meets in the parking lot near Utah street school. I remember it was hell of crazy seeing fools drinking and fighting. Once again I was a kid (about 12 years old) so my memory might be alittle off. I remember Indio from Al Capone never backing down from a fight with EEC. Indio always with his denim Levi jacket. BB would always hang out Indio. Where am I getting with this is that we all live and then we grow up. I understand that most – it is hard to get out. I was lucky on two sides – Arturo (RIP) motived me not to get into gang life and my parents could not take the shootings on Via Portola. But this fighting is getting nowhere. I remember my memories but who is to say that my are the same as someone elses.
    The EEC always had the freshest rides (yes I said fresh) – I always remember a candy read 65 impala on daytons – could have been green – there was also a white one. I remember Sergio working on the sound system. Thats right a project kid that would installl radios for folks.
    After the shit hit the fan and PF wanted or tried to take the Via portola territory Al Capone was not going to have it. What ever happened to Chino – not from Al capone but would sell with them? Anyways If you feel you need to put somedown on the internet board to sound tough – continue by all means – but you eventually will start to sound lame. If you do continue to spew you verbage then please clean it up so that individuals like myself can at least try to read your nonsense. NO MORE TEXTING please use or try to use some form or semi proper english.
    Alrato – Aliso village is gone and memories are just memories fading away………..

      Fredo, why are you surprised that a project kid can install a car radio? They sure have taken enough of them out…LOL!!!!!

    EEC – I actually meant East Coast Crips which should be ECC. My mistake. So replace EEC to ECC. Thanks.

    Who remembers when folks were getting free sugar from the one of the train cars – this only happened once. Who remembers when Paul Gonzalez was a bad ass boxer – Thats right a hood celebrity (even though he was PF ???) crusing in his rented corvette – could have been his prom or something. The good old days. You had to be there to believe. Who remembers when they filmed “Stand and Deliver” in Hollenbeck Jr. High – Thats right Jr. High not Middle school.
    I remember walking home form a lame hollenbeck jr high dance (Ha) with BB and Jose (Aturos Brother) down 1st street back in 85 to the projects – just a cool walk with no one fucking with use. Those were the days.

    Fredo, I remember taking a chorizo up my yami one nite, was that u tio mio?

  12. armbreaker

    Its funny you brought up Chino that kicked it with ALCP, he was actually from BMS. I end up working with him at Home Depot years later, he hated my homeboys but me and him were real cool. I guess one of the homies jammed him up in front of his moms pad with a strap thinking he was a ALCP, with that being said I dont blame him for having beef with PF.

      This is for 2011 – If you can not say something nice – Don’t say it at all.

      But since two losers ( that still live with their parents) Me Meo de Risa and Lorna Doone (which I suspect are both gay – by their comments) finally had their words immortalized on this site. Thank you two losers for such a great chioce of words from your extensive library of words – who am I kidding. Both of you loser are going to continue being losers. Good thing you guys have internet conection – Internet gangster at their best. You guys win – the BIGGEST jerkoff contest.

      Me Meo de Risa – Loser #1 – Gangster thug – wears hello kitty underwear.
      Lorna Doone – Loser #2 – Gangster slug – wears barrny underwear.

      Hope you guys still live in the Projects – Iknow I don’t – HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

  21. Listo Rifa

    Mayate, it’s common sense that if MEXICANS out number AFRICANS in a regular yard, it’s gonna be the same in any other yard including a SNY, pendejo. And bc the population is 80% SUREÑO in a SN yard according to ur studies Dr Africano, It doesn’t necessarily mean “smell and tell” or whatever the fuck ur calling it. So make sense of what u type, before u type it. Ignorance isn’t a bad thing. And what’s up with referring to him as Rio Grande bc ur assuming he’s a Mexican? I don’t get the joke. Shall I refer to you as “Atlantic Ocean” or the Great Ship Jesus, since ur AFRICAN??
