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).

    Can’t wait till this gentrification takes a hold here in Boyle Heights. Than Kamsters moms can’t afford the rent and we will have very few if any of these roaches in our neighborhood.

    Howdy would you mind sharimg which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason Iask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
