West Adams District
West Adams as a district is considerably large, stretching from Figueroa
Street on the east to Western Blvd. on the west, and from Pico Blvd. on the
north to Jefferson Blvd. on the south. Within its borders are a number of
incredible museums, the University of Southern California, the Staples
Center, the new Nokia theater and the Los Angeles Convention Center.
Downtown with its vibrant fashion, jewelry, flower and toy districts is five
minutes away. The Santa Monica Freeway, gateway to Southern California,
runs conveniently through West Adams, connecting the eastern regions of
the Southland to the beach in Santa Monica.
West Adams is a community that is among the most diverse in the city. In the
80’s it began a small influx of whites and the immigration of Latinos. In the
same period Asians and Black professionals continued to move into the
community. Today there is a mingling of many cultures, creating a unique
and varied way of life.
Sugar Hill is a small, vibrant sub-set of the West Adams District, properly
known as the West Adams Heights/Sugar Hill Neighborhood. Its boundaries
can be seen in the map below.
