Origin[edit] Persian businesses in the L.A. area originally centered in the Westwood neighborhood of the Westside. Iranian-owned businesses are particularly prevalent on Westwood Boulevard between Wilshire Boulevard (in Westwood) to Pico Boulevard (in West L.A.). Often referred to as Persian Hills/Persian Square, it is between Beverly Hills and West Los Angeles. Immigration to the area increased several-fold due to the events surrounding the 1979 Revolution in Iran. Westwood Boulevard became known for its many Persian shops and restaurants; and the Iranian expatriate community of Los Angeles entered all forms of media including magazines, newspapers, radio, and television stations.

Distribution[edit] As the population grew, many Iranians have moved all over Los Angeles, with other large communities forming in the Los Angeles neighborhoods of Tarzana, Woodland Hills, and Encino in the San Fernando Valley and Beverly Hills, California, the city of Irvine, as well throughout Orange County; and Persians also made their homes in San Diego and the Palm Springs area (Coachella Valley).
