Geography[edit] City of Los Angeles boundaries[edit] The City of Los Angeles Department of Transportation has posted Mid-City signage [1] to mark the area. City installed signs are at the following intersections (from east to west): Hoover Street and Washington Boulevard [2], Vermont Avenue and Pico Boulevard [3] , Western Avenue and Pico Boulevard [4], Normandie Avenue and the Santa Monica Freeway [5], and La Brea Avenue and the Santa Monica Freeway. [6] Google Maps[edit] Google Maps outlines an area labeled “Mid-City” that roughly runs from Hoover Street on the East to La Cienega Boulevard & Robertson Boulevard on the West. The North is roughly bordered by Olympic Boulevard and the Santa Monica Freeway is on the South. [7] Mapping L.A. boundaries[edit] The Mapping L.A. project of the Los Angeles Times states as follows: Mid-City is bounded on the north by Pico Boulevard, on the east by Crenshaw Boulevard, on the south by the Santa Monica Freeway, on the southwest by Washington and National boulevards, on the west by Robertson Boulevard and on the northwest by Cadillac Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard.[8][9][10][11] It is flanked by Carthay and Mid-Wilshire to the north, Arlington Heights to the east, Culver City and West Adams to the south, Palms to the southwest, Beverlywood to the west and Pico-Robertson to the northwest.

Population[edit] The Holmes-Shannon House in Victoria Park was built in 1911. Apartment building at San Vicente and Pico boulevards The 2000 U.S. census counted 52,197 residents in the 3.47-square-mile neighborhood—an average of 15,051 people per square mile, among the highest population densities in Los Angeles County. In 2008, the city estimated that the population had increased to 55,016. The median age for residents was 31, about average for both the city and the county.[10] Mid-City was said to be "highly diverse" when compared to the city at large, with a diversity index of 0.637. The ethnic breakdown in 2000 was: Latinos, 45.2%; blacks, 38.3%; whites, 9.5%; Asians, 3.9%; and others, 3.1%. Mexico (46) and El Salvador (15.6%) were the most common places of birth for the 35.1% of the residents who were born abroad, a figure that was considered average for the city and county.[10] The median household income in 2008 dollars was $43,711, considered average for the city. The percentage of households earning $20,000 or less was high, compared to the county at large. The average household size of 2.8 people was just about average for Los Angeles. Renters occupied 68.9% of the housing units, and home- or apartment owners the rest.[10] The percentages of never-married men (43.2%) and never-married women (35%) were among the county's highest. The census found 2,748 families headed by single parents, the 23.4% rate being considered high for both the city and the county.[10]


Enclaves[edit] Smaller neighborhoods within Mid-City include: Reynier Village. Rocha House, the 13th Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument, is located in the village.[12] Lafayette Square. It was designated by the city as a Los Angeles Historic Preservation Overlay Zone in 2000. Brookside Crestview Little Ethiopia Picfair Village Wellington Square Victoria Park


Transportation[edit] This section needs to be updated. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. (May 2013) Crenshaw Corridor and regional setting. dashed lines represent possible extensions or alignments Click to enlarge. As part of their long-range plans, the Los Angeles County MTA has proposed the Metro Crenshaw/LAX Line, which would place a rail transit station in Mid-City. The proposed rail stop is at the intersection of Pico and San Vicente Boulevards—site of the old Vineyard Junction. That same intersection was a former rail stop of the Pacific Electric Red Car lines more than 50 years ago. The Pacific Electric Red Car lines heading west from downtown Los Angeles diverged at Vineyard Junction. One line continued on to Beverly Hills, while the other went out to Venice Beach. The old Vineyard Junction site is now occupied by the end terminal for the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus. The Crenshaw Light Rail Line would allow Mid-City residents to easy access to the city's east/west rail lines: the Purple Line along Wilshire Boulevard, the Expo Line from Downtown Los Angeles to Downtown Santa Monica, and the Green Line from Norwalk to Redondo Beach and soon near LAX. Currently, the Mid-City alignment is unfunded, and part of the Crenshaw Corridor's "Northern Feasibility Study".
