Clanton 14th Street – 1st Hood Westside

Clanton 14th Street – 1st Hood

Clanton 14th Street is among one of the oldest Hispanic gangs in Los Angeles, beginning during the early 1920s. It’s early history would not be characterized as a street gang in the modern sense of the term, but by the 1950s, members were self identifying as gang members. The neighborhood was named for an east-west street, Clanton, that undergone a name change to 14th Street during the 1940s, hence the term, Clanton 14th Street.

In the first Westside Clanton barrio in the Pico-Union area near 18th Street, new members attempted to start a click called Clanton 18th Street, which most members rejected, creating a division between Clanton 14 members on the Westside and the original Clanton neighborhood on the Eastside with those wanting to create Clanton 18. Rather than dropping the 18, these new members decided to drop Clanton, becoming a separate identity; 18th Street in 1959.

As a result of this split, 18th Street began to spread its influence in the Pico-Union area, and by the late 1970s, Clanton had lost half of its 1st westside neighborhood and by the 1980s, gang members were looking to join new neighborhoods and as Clanton was slowly disappearing from the Pico-Union area.

During the 1970s, the apartment on 11th Street and Albany was a Clanton hangout commonly referred to as the White House.

Today, the old Clanton neighborhood is occupied by two different 18th Street neighborhoods, Burlington Street Locos, Crazy Riders, The Orphans, Witmer Street, Rockwood and Wanderers. Even though the first hood of Clanton is now defunct, there are several veteranos still around from this old neighborhood.

The clicks from this neighborhood include the Midgets and Pico Union Dukes.

Clanton 4th hood in North Hollywood and Clanton Eastside hood of South Los Angeles still remain active.

    My uncle Joe Jimenez was a Clanton St. member from the original neighborhood.. My aunt Orti still keeps in touch with some of the people from there and she told me that they still have neighborhood dances. It would be nice to hear from anybody that remembers my uncle.

    • Joseph

      To clarify, Clanton Street is now called 14th Place. That’s the corner his family lived on. It really sucks that the entire area now is all commercial buildings. It would’ve been cool to see the neighborhood they grew up in.

    • Joseph

      Kenny, my grandfather was a Clanton Street member. His family lived in the heart of the neighborhood, if I remember correctly from all the stories we were told growing up about those days, his family lived at the corner of 14th and Paloma Street. Regardless of the house’s location, everyone pretty much knew everyone back in those days. At least I can say that about my grandfather.

      I remember him taking me to the Clanton dances in the 70’s and went to a few in the 80’s and 90’s. Having gone to all those dances, it wouldn’t surprise me to learn that I’ve been introduced to your family, or to hear that my grandfather knows your uncle, and/or people that directly know him. Including your aunt Orti.

      I’ll share this with my grandfather and get back to you. I’ll also ask when the next dance is. I’m sure he’d like for his great-grandchildren to check it out.

        I was incorcoran 4B2R with my homeboy bigDragon from the first.Im from the es CLANTON, and asked him why didn’t the hood flourish in the WS.? He specifically stated” We don’t get in people who don’t talk English.And the war in el I dont likeen Salvador I dont likeed up our requiorting efforts. Short story if you cannot talk English you are from 18st. Or play boys. Not from CLANTON. And pico union area is pradomatlycerotes. 18st. Concist of 80% cerrotes &20% blacks. Ur a disgrace. I dont like 18st. Even in the pin you fools are ostriside. There’s a ws car. And then there’s a ws 18 car. Your like 36st.in the es you fools don’t count.

  10. lil girl

    wow..the picture of the clanton with R.I.P tripper was in memory of my little brother Nazario “Jr” ..he was from the 1st hood…lived from Dec1980-June 2007..a short life n left two small children at the time..doing what he did best, defending a younger brother of a hommie..he lost his life for a varrio that still thrives..my father, Flace from the 1st hood aslo “Nazario” died on feb 2010 because of the loss of my brother..he also ast his old age ran the streets…i can still remeber as a child hanging out on trinity n 30th at frankies house every weekend with my mom n dad n the other vets partying the weekened away..at times the party was at, now closed, behind the wine factory, a little picnic area..lol…or on 32nd at Big Red house…Good times, but because back then when it was “on n popping” they would run out to the streets n a purrooooo putasos…some would come back all mest up n some would win…but the point is that they would live to see another day to do it again..a “REAL MANS” ways..now at days farts r quick to pull a trigger because they “KNOW” they wont last toe to toe…i will not play the part that i did not run the streets also…i have the tats to prove who n what i am…a CLANTONERA de primera..n do i get hit up at my old age still…yup…do i mind..no..it is what it is n will be what it will be…i love my hood for what it made me…a stronge woman that runs n owns her own business..n i LOVE to see high end people with money that mommy n daddy left them eat, shop,live,hang out n drive the same things i have…i LOVE to see their faces when i walk in the room with my arms,legs,back full of tats n the varrio written on me for the whole world to see n r shocked,shocked to see n hear that this 2nd gen high school drop out married at 18 tatted up looks ghetto as hell girl can have a same level converstion n the same things they do..n i thank MY hood for all of this, because it made me want to prove to retarded blank people that just because u r ghetto doesnt mean ur stupid…n most people tend to forget that stay stuck in the neg..but the hood has also done me durty..n not by ANY means do i dis it but because it has taken the two most important MEN in my life whom also like me was doing good..but like me still, i go back to the hood, kick it, go crazy, not knowing if that one night of crazyness will be my last since most haters are to chicken ish to really handle thier business like men n need a peace of steal to do it..with this all said, i guess my point is that regardless if u fart blank hating varrios talk alllllll ur masa, I AM PROOF that MY VARRIO even thru that hard times,drama, bulish IS BETTER..N i make my money the CLEAN WAY..so i dont have to worry about them picking up MY LAND ROVERS N 700 BMW when ish hits the fan…keep hating chavalitas…this hood still out shines urs… ;p
