About Los Angeles
L.A. is the city for creators, life-breathers and entrepreneurs to pour their hearts into. As the sun rises, the machine of dreams comes to life to conquer the next 24-hour rotation of the Earth.
Los Angeles is the second largest populated city in the US. As a county, it is the most populated in the nation, with just over 13 million inhabitants. LA might feel crowded for some, with an average of 8,500 people per square mile. Only in comparison to a drastically larger populous city (like Mumbai, India, which is 10x more densely populated) do you feel that Los Angeles has “breathing room”. For most, it’s quite cozy with the hum of neighbors; interspersed with vacant mountainous areas.
For a county that spans about 60 miles in radius, it starts rather far north, in Lancaster and Palmdale. Where the elevation is slightly higher, you will have that much more desert and blazing sun in the Summer and equally sharp drops in temp at night and into Winter. The mountains that surround the region often crown with snow. This feeds small lakes with cabins freckling the shorelines for a weekend get-away from the hub-bub.
Coming through the pass you get a taste of the mountains that border much of the great valley. As you pass through Acton and Santa Clarita, you get the last miles of the Grapevine before the San Fernando Valley pops into view. You are home.
Hugging the east foothold of the range, you pass through Sunland, Tujunga, La Crescenta, La Cañada and Montrose. In fact, any city along the mountain line boasts picturesque cafes and brick or cobblestoned downtown walks and are great for a mini-vacay from the heart of the city. For many that live there, it’s for that exact reason that they chose to call it home: it’s having a little slice of heaven just outside the noise. Conveniently, if you were heading to Pasadena, a more scenic route couldn’t be found.
On the valley side, you first hit Burbank as the major city of the north valley of LA. There is a mini-mountain ridge that divides it from the north to the south. Three main arteries carry you south through that range, which all run parallel for this jaunt: the 405, 101 and the 5.
The 405 drops you through Bel Air into Brentwood, Westwood and Beverly Hills. 101 takes you from North Hollywood and Studio City to Hollywood. The 5 takes you down to Glendale where you have the option of heading east to get to Pasadena, or venturing further south to get into the lower valley that makes up the iconic “Hollywood” area.
Looking back over your shoulder, you get your first glimpse of the Hollywood sign, the Griffith Park observatory and beginnings of an architectural tour of Old Glam Hollywood with a touch of Spanish Villa as the estates start spanning out on the left and right of Los Feliz. One would be remiss in not stopping at Fred 62’s, day or night, for a “Strawberry Beret”.
With a city so large, one section starts to blur into the next and the cultures that follow each area deserve each a novel in their own right. From the garment and diamond districts in downtown, to Chinatown, to Santa Monica and hitting the coast.
Dropping slightly south on the coast we highlight Torrance. Unique to the city is that it has the second largest population of Japanese residents outside of their homeland. This was due in no small part to Toyota setting up headquarters there for the past 30 years. This then attracted other Japanese companies to follow suit. Torrance often gets overlooked as Manhattan Beach and Redondo Beach are more tourist promoted. For what it’s worth, you really get the best of both worlds in having a bustling coastal city that is a step or two quieter than its northern siblings.
In the east corner pocket of this organic billiard is the industry hub of West Covina where you can dive into the warehouse pulse and find makers and inventory storage for everything big or small. That Long Beach is the 2nd largest port in the US means that you rely on having logistics and warehousing and infrastructure to match and, not unlike bookends, Long Beach and West Covina sort of demark the south-west and east borders of Los Angeles county.
Long Beach handles over $100 Billion in trade and employs over 300,000 people on its 25 miles of waterfront.
What would Los Angeles be without infrastructure? What about HUMAN infrastructure? The shoulders this valley rests on, both figuratively and geographically, lay south of downtown LA: We see you Inglewood, Compton and Downey. This trio makes up some of the oldest cities in Los Angeles county. Due to the boom of the region, these served primarily as housing auxiliaries to the “dream machine” that was Los Angeles and the port of Long Beach. Historically, it was white collar and blue collar workers. The real struggle these emerging cities faced, at the turn of the century, was that they had no commercial interests within themselves. For example, Compton hosts a 33% rate of residents who are under the age of 18. 70% of the city is under the age of 40. If you don’t have businesses that are in-city, you end up with a lot of commuters or a higher rate of unemployment. From Compton especially, we saw a huge emergence of professional athletes and musicians who highlighted the struggle that was “growing up” there. Currently, Compton has been investing in itself and building up commercial opportunities. With its unique location to highways and ports, it really is a fertile ground for new businesses. While Hollywood still reflects on Compton’s trials over the past decades, the city is actually currently 65% Latino Hispanic and is seeing a commercial shift that takes advantage of its location in relation to railways and ports.
As the sun sets on another day, the soundtrack of the city takes on the strains of Bobby Bland, “Ain’t No Love, In the Heart of the City” as most residents take the bumper-to-bumper commute to all the corners of Los Angeles County that they call their home. As sure as the sun sets, it’s for certain that the dawn of the next day brings a new round of opportunity. Making the most of your 24 hours is the hustle that makes LA great.
