Mapping Los Angeles Downtown Districts

Sep 20, 2010 by Lisa Newton

I don’t know about you, but I’ve been “meeting” some fantastic people on Facebook. In fact, one of my newest friends goes by the name of DTLA Citizen.


Down Town Los Angeles, of course.

The main purpose of DTLA Citizen is to post “Event listings in Downtown LA.”

Upon researching his or her page, under the info section, I found the boundaries for the various districts in Los Angeles.

  1. Arts District
  2. Bunker Hill
  3. Chinatown
  4. Central City East (aka Skid Row)
  5. Civic Center
  6. Fashion District
  7. Financial District
  8. Flower District
  9. Gallery Row
  10. Historic Core
  11. Jewelry District
  12. Little Tokyo
  13. Old Bank District
  14. South Park
  15. Toy District

For many Los Angeles residents, the multiple downtown districts have always been confusing. To be sure, various road signs will inform you where you are, but that’s like a 180 bird’s eye view of one certain area, but not the entire district. Therefore, with the help of DTLA’s Citizen’s list, I mapped the entirety of the downtown Los Angeles Districts listed above:

    What a great idea this map is! Suddenly I’ve got the urge to visit downtown for the first time in a long time. Btw, I love your whole blog and I’m super impressed by your energy. :)

    @Cindy Cotter, Thanks, Cindy. Downtown LA is great, but I really did find the whole districts idea a bit confusing, but not anymore.

    Just a couple changes to suggest. Little Tokyo actually extends up to 1st Street (and Temple St, depending on where you are). Los Angeles Street is the historic border on the west. Add the area from 3rd and Los Angeles up to 1st and Los Angeles, then east at 1st and San Pedro up to Temple and San Pedro (which is actually called Judge John Aiso Street), then from Temple/San Pedro east to Alameda. From Temple/Alameda, down to your current border, that’s the extent of Little Tokyo.

    @Rich, Thanks for the heads up, Rich. I made the necessary changes, which made total sense. Better now?

    Civic Center also extends east to the Little Tokyo border at Los Angeles Street, and north of Temple to Alameda.
