Baldwin Park, California – Hispanic gangs
Baldwin Park is located in the central San Gabriel Valley region of LA County. It is approximately 18 miles west of downtown Los Angeles. The city covers an area of 6.8 sq. miles of land and 1.9 sq. miles of water. It is located just northwest of West Covina and southwest of Azusa.
Before its development as a city, the land on which Baldwin Park sits was used for ranching and cattle grazing by the San Gabriel Mission. In 1906 it changed to Baldwin Park, being named after a prominent California businessman at the time, Elias J. “Lucky” Baldwin. Baldwin Park is home to the first In-N-Out burger stand, California’s most iconic hamburger establishment. It was also the first drive-thru in California.
