The City of Los Angeles has many smaller neighborhoods and communities that align the historic Arroyo Seco Parkway. The Arroyo Seco Parkway is also known as the 110 Freeway. This was the first freeway in the western United States and it connects Pasadena to Downtown Los Angeles. It is named the “Arroyo Seco Parkway” because it runs along side the Arroyo Seco River. The Arroyo Seco Parkway is lined with large, beautiful sycamore trees that are typically found only near water. Residents that live in these communities are able to easily utilize the Parkway to travel to the heart of Downtown Los Angeles, where so many jobs are located.

Elysian Park is a small community located in the Elysian Valley. The Elysian Park community is situated in the northeast corner of Elysian Valley. This neighborhood is only 1.5 square miles and has 2500 residents. This is only 1500 people per square mile, which makes Elysian Park one of the least densely populated areas in Los Angeles. The population is split almost equally between Latinos and Asians with an average yearly income of 28,000, which is low for Los Angeles. Elysian Park is located in the Chavez Ravine along with Dodger Stadium.

Lincoln Heights is an older community found just east of Downtown Los Angeles. Lincoln Heights has about 2.5 square miles and 27,000 residents, which equals 10,700 people per square mile. Lincoln Heights is the home to many great landmarks. Lincoln Heights is the home to an Alligator Farm and Ostrich Farm, which attracts plenty of tourists. The Selig Polyscope Company is an American motion picture company and Southern California’s first major motion picture company.

The hillside community of Mount Washington is located in the San Rafael Hills just off of the Arroyo Seco Parkway. Mount Washington consists of 13000 residents in a 1.85 square mile radius providing about 7000 people per square mile. Mount Washington is home to the Southwest Museum of the American Indian. This museum triples as an archive and library, which displays art and artifacts of Western American, Spanish Colonial and Latino culture. As of 2014, Mount Washington real estate is one of the hottest neighborhoods in Los Angeles.

Highland Park is one the original communities in Los Angeles. Highland Park is a large community that consists of almost 60,000 residents in its 3.42 square mile neighborhood. Highland Park has a high population of Latinos followed by Asians and whites. The average household has a yearly income of 45,000 dollars, which is average for Los Angeles. Highland Park homes are a hot commodity in the real estate market as neighborhoods become gentrified.

South Pasadena is 3.42 square miles with a population of 26,000 people. It is located in the San Gabriel Valley just east of the Arroyo Seco River and Parkway. South Pasadena is beautifully lined with redwood, sequoia and walnut trees that add a pleasant, homey vibe to the neighborhoods. The business district is full of “mom and pop” cafes and restaurants, which give a unique experience to the residents and tourists of South Pasadena. Many residents of South Pasadena enjoy hiking and picnicking near the Arroyo Seco River.

Pasadena is a large city in eastern Los Angeles that has a population of 137,000 people making it one of the most highly populated cities in the United States. Pasadena has about 6000 people per square mile and the people are predominantly white. Pasadena is full of big landmarks like the Rose Bowl and the Norton Simon Museum. Residents of Pasadena are able to jump on the Arroyo Seco freeway and arrive in Downtown Los Angeles.
