Mapping LA Neighborhoods

The Mapping LA Site from the LA Times, provides neighborhood boundaries and demographic information about them.  They note that it will be expanded to the Southern California region.  It will interesting to see what happens in some of the County’s Unincorporated areas, where there are disagreements and difficulties in making clear distinctions between neighborhoods.

About Mapping L.A.

Welcome to The Times’ map of the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, your portal to our new community pages for the city. Click on a neighborhood above to see a more detailed map with information about schools, income, demographics and news from your area. In the weeks ahead, we plan to keep adding more information, including crime statistics and restaurants finds.

These neighborhoods were built with your help. In February 2009, we posted a first version of the map and asked readers to send us their critiques and suggestions. You responded. After reviewing more than 1,500 comments and maps posted on this site, Times staffers have made nearly 100 boundary changes, producing an updated map showing 114 neighborhood subdivisions within the city.

But readers didn’t just comment on the boundaries; hundreds sent notes — short essays really — on the places they live. They were informative, humorous, thought-provoking and often eloquent. We hope to keep that conversation going. Please use these pages to tell us more about the places you live.

For those who live in Southern California, but outside the city of Los Angeles, stay tuned. We plan to bring you the same type of community pages in the coming months.
