Hispanic gangs in the City of Los Angeles, California – Boyle Heights area

Home > Hispanic Gangs > City of Los Angeles > Boyle Heights

Situated just east of the Los Angeles river, Boyle Heights has long been a gateway for newcomers to the city. From the 1920s to the 1950s it was Los Angeles’ most heterogenous neighborhood, serving as home to large concentrations of Jews, Mexicans, and Japanese Americans, as well as Russian Molokans, African Americans, and people of Armenian, Italian, and Chinese descent. Today the neighborhood is primarily Latino, and it continues to serve as a port-of-entry for a number of the city’s immigrant groups.

The nearly 100-year old Jewish synagogue, Breed Street Synagogue also known as the Congregation Talmud Torah of Los Angeles still sits on Breed Street in Boyle Heights. Although it is currently not open, the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2001. This community was the heart of Jewish life during the starting in the 1920s but decades later the Jewish community moved west into Hancock Park.

Much of the Jewish history in Boyle Heights has been preserved, but in 1994, the Los Angeles City Council and the County Board of Supervisors changed the name of Brooklyn Avenue, previously the center of Jewish culture and life, to César Chávez Avenue.

One of that last Jewish owned businesses in the area was Zellman’s, a mens clothing and apparel store at 2306 Brooklyn Avenue. The Zellman family opened their clothing store in 1921 selling suits and shirts, but they continued operating the store years after Jewish flight, serving the Hispanic community until 1999.

The gangs in Boyle Heights identify with East Los Angeles (East LOS / ELA) but the jurisdiction of East Los Angeles is east of Indiana which is unincorporated Los Angeles County policed by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s department, and Boyle Heights is in the City of Los Angeles, policed by the Hollenbeck Department of the Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD).

        why they got the green light

      • Heights323

        Foo if all those deep strong hoods couldn’t & still can’t take out Opal, no one can. They all tried there best trust me. They all lost soldiers in the process. Opal always had killers that don’t give a fuck they proved themselves decades ago and really made an example by riding the greenlight out and saying fuck a peace treaty. Of course they also lost many solid soldiers and many also got life tho. But they had to really be savages when they got lighted in 97. Every head especially VNE can talk their shit on how they put in work on OSL but they don’t mention that OSL stayed putting in work on them nonstop. There’s a reasons why Opal is so damn hated by everybody because they can’t be completely wiped out. But they also get the respect they deserve for doing what they still do, being everybody killers. The few against the many. Like the 300 Spartans or some shit. Even some of the Maravillas punked out and started running with SUR, but Opal still remains it’s own. It’s been too long and they done too much to punk out now. They got my respect for sure. Other strict hood political gangs also kick it with OGs from Opal on the low cause they see that those vatos are real ones. Opal is known everywhere. The Most Hated but Respected hood in all LA county. They might not have much new recruits & might not be in their hood like before at all, but they still go there & surprisingly still put in work. That’s why VNE still be crying like always, especially on the internet. If they couldn’t take out OSL they can’t take out no one so they shouldn’t be talking a good one like if they could smash on any other varrio. But then again Opal isn’t just any other varrio….
