Where in the world is East Hollywood?
With a population of 51,000 residents, East Hollywood is a 1.8 square-mile
community in the city of Los Angeles surrounded by central Hollywood, Los Feliz, Silver Lake and Koreatown. One of the most culturally diverse
communities -- if not the most culturally diverse community -- in Los Angeles, it is home to the city's main Armenian (Little
Armenia district), Thai (Thai Town district) and El Salvadoran communities.
It is also home to many Mexican, Filipino, Korean, Chinese, Japanese,
Russian, Eastern European and Middle Eastern residents and businesses.
Because of the cultural diversity, East Hollywood offers a veritable food
paradise comprising of countless ethnic restaurants, bakeries and other
eateries, including the original Zankou Chicken, the original Cha Cha Cha,
the Zagat-acclaimed Marouch, Sanamluang Cafe, Thailand Plaza and Paru's
Indian Vegetarian, just to name but a few.
East Hollywood's institutions include three major medical centers (the
"Bed Pan Alley" trifecta of Kaiser Permanente Medical Center, Children's
Hospital Los Angeles and Queen of Angels-Hollywood Presbyterian Medical
Center), Los Angeles City College, four Los Angeles Unified School District
elementary schools (Ramona, Lockwood, Dayton Heights and Kingsley), Barnsdall Park,
Madison West Park
and numerous small businesses.
It is bordered by Hollywood and Sunset boulevards
to the north, Hoover St to the east, the 101
Freeway to the south
and Western Ave to the west.
