Boyle Heights Travel Guide



Boyle Heights is a district east of Downtown Los Angeles sandwiched between the downtown area and East Los Angeles. It is situated on the east bank of the Los Angeles River.[1] Through the 1940s, it was a predominantly Jewish and Japanese American community with a few Russian Americans and Eastern European residents mixed in. It has since become almost exclusively a Hispanic neighborhood, home to many Central Americans from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. The district is a little sketchy and freeway-caged and best avoided at night due to the presence of local gangs.[2]

Attractions
The main attraction of Boyle Heights is the Norteños combos group who showcase their talents for free at the junction of Cesar Chavez and Soto every afternoon at 5PM, looking to get wedding bookings.[3]
