Geography[edit] Picfair Village's boundaries are Pico Boulevard on the north, Hauser Boulevard on the east, Venice Boulevard on the south, and Fairfax Avenue on the west.[1] Picfair Village is part of the P.I.C.O. Neighborhood Council. The Wilshire Vista district lies to the north, as does the Miracle Mile area in the Mid-Wilshire and/or Mid-City West regions. The Little Ethiopia district lies to the northwest and the Crestview neighborhood to the west. Additional primary thoroughfares include Airdrome, Pickford, Saturn and 18th Streets.


Neighborhood composition and demographics[edit] This section needs to be updated. Please update this article to reflect recent events or newly available information. (November 2017) Picfair Village is primarily a middle-income area with a moderate African-American majority. Per the U.S. Census of 2000, the population is approximately 50% African-American, 20% non-Latino white, 25% Latino of any race and 5% Asian/Pacific Islander. Median household income is around $45,000. The housing stock is predominantly Spanish Colonial and Art Deco one- and two-family homes (the neighborhood is zoned R-1 and R-2), with some multi-unit dwellings (mostly north of Saturn Street). The latter tend to be Mid-Century architecture. The main street of the "Village" is Pico Boulevard between Fairfax and Hauser, and is dotted to with cafes, restaurants and boutiques. The area south of Pico and north of Saturn Street has a mix of houses and two- and four-plexes. South of Pickford are mostly single family residential homes. Homes on the north/south streets tend to be full-size lots (5,000 - 6000 sq. ft.), while homes on the east/west streets tend to be bungalow (smaller) sized lots.


History[edit] Picfair Village takes its name from the Picfair movie theatre that stood at the corner of Pico and Fairfax until the early 1980s. Initially hailed as "the New Wilshire...[and] a delightful place for a home," what is now Picfair Village was part of the Santa Monica Land and Water Co.'s 1922 development called Pico Boulevard Heights. They offered "choice lots on Genesee Street" starting at $1,250. The area was once home to author Walter Mosley (one of his characters lived on Stanley). The neighborhood has been active since 1998. At one of the early Neighborhood Association meetings, the group voted to change the name to the Picfair Village Community Association. In November 2004, Picfair Village was named as one of Los Angeles magazine's "10 Most Overlooked Neighborhoods in Los Angeles." In January 2007, the Los Angeles Times said Picfair Village is "on its way to becoming L.A.'s next trendy place to live and play."[2]
