Brief information about Los Angeles

Mid-City is a highly diverse, very dense urban neighborhood in Central Los Angeles, California, with renters occupying most of the housing space but also with notable districts composed of historic single-family homes.
Attractions include restaurants and a post office named for singer Ray Charles, who had his recording studio in Mid-City. The neighborhood hosts eleven public and private schools. A north-south light-rail line is proposed for the area.
The 2000 U.S. census counted 52,197 residents in the 3.47-square-mile neighborhood—an average of 15,051 people per square mile, among the highest population densities in Los Angeles County. In 2008, the city estimated that the population had increased to 55,016. The median age for residents was 31, about average for both the city and the county.
Mid-City was said to be “highly diverse” when compared to the city at large, with a diversity index of 0.637. The ethnic breakdown in 2000 was: Latinos, 45.2%; blacks, 38.3%; whites, 9.5%; Asians, 3.9%; and others, 3.1%. Mexico (46) and El Salvador (15.6%) were the most common places of birth for the 35.1% of the residents who were born abroad, a figure that was considered average for the city and county.

The median household income in 2008 dollars was $43,711, considered average for the city. The percentage of households earning $20,000 or less was high, compared to the county at large. The average household size of 2.8 people was just about average for Los Angeles. Renters occupied 68.9% of the housing units, and home- or apartment owners the rest.
The percentages of never-married men (43.2%) and never-married women (35%) were among the county’s highest. The census found 2,748 families headed by single parents, the 23.4% rate being considered high for both the city and the county.

Mid-City is flanked by Carthay and Mid-Wilshire to the north, Arlington Heights to the east, Culver City and West Adams to the south, Palms to the southwest, Beverlywood to the west and Pico-Robertson to the northwest. The neighborhood is bounded on the north by Pico Boulevard, on the east by Crenshaw Boulevard, on the south by the Santa Monica Freeway, on the southwest by Washington and National boulevards, on the west by Robertson Boulevard and on the northwest by Cadillac Avenue and La Cienega Boulevard.
Smaller named areas within the Mid-City neighborhood are Brookside, Crestview, Fremont Place, Lafayette Square, Little Ethiopia, Picfair Village, Wellington Square, and Victoria Park.

Mid-city residents aged 25 and older holding a four-year degree amounted to 16.8% of the population in 2000, about average for both the city and the county.
These are the elementary or secondary schools within the neighborhood’s boundaries:

  • Hamilton High School, 2955 Robertson Boulevard, which opened in fall 1931, with Thomas Hughes Elson as the principal. At the time, its attendance boundaries included Culver City and in 1932 they extended as far north as Mulholland Highway.
  • Saturn Street Elementary School, 5360 Saturn Street
  • Alta Loma Elementary School, 1745 Vineyard Avenue
  • Shenandoah Street Elementary School, 2450 Shenandoah Street
  • Futuro College Preparatory Elementary School, LAUSD charter, 3838 Rosemead Avenue
  • Crescent Heights Boulevard Elementary School, alternative school, 1661 South Crescent Heights Boulevard
  • Los Angeles Center for Enriched Studies, alternative school, 5931 West 18th Street

Private schools

  • Pico Elementary School, 4436 West Pico Boulevard
  • Holy Spirit Elementary School, 1418 South Burnside Avenue
  • Play Mountain Place, 6063 Hargis Street
  • Donna Ro School, private, 4946 West 20th Street
As part of their long-range plans, the Los Angeles County MTA has proposed the Metro Crenshaw Line, which would place a rail transit stop in Mid-City. The proposed rail stop is at the intersection of Pico and San Vicente Boulevards—site of the old Vineyard Junction. That same intersection was a former rail stop of the Pacific Electric Red Car lines more than 50 years ago.
The Pacific Electric Red Car lines heading west from downtown Los Angeles diverged at Vineyard Junction. One line continued on to Beverly Hills, while the other went out to Venice Beach. The old Vineyard Junction site is now occupied by the end terminal for the Santa Monica Big Blue Bus.
The Crenshaw Light Rail Line would allow Mid-City residents to easy access to the city’s east/west rail lines: the Purple Line along Wilshire Boulevard, the Expo Line from Downtown Los Angeles to Culver City, and the Green Line from Norwalk to Redondo Beach.
Currently, the Mid-City alignment is unfunded, and part of the Crenshaw Corridor’s “Northern Feasibility Study”.
