As one of the most culturally diverse cities in the nation, Los Angeles is an unrivaled treasure trove of creative expression, food choices, and community groups pushing our city forward. Los Angeles County includes many cities and communities home to and popular among our corps members and alumni. Central L.A., or “Mid City,” is brimming with landmarks, retail, and housing opportunities and is situated between the West Side (Santa Monica, Brentwood, Venice), Downtown, and South LA (Exposition Park, Historic South Central, Baldwin Hills, and Inglewood, to name just a few). Downtown-adjacent Koreatown is an apartment-laden community with wonderful food. Below the San Fernando Valley, you’ll catch all the entertainment buzz Hollywood has to offer, while toward the east you’ll find the communities of Silver Lake, Los Feliz, and Echo Park, and beyond that, Boyle Heights and Lincoln Heights in East LA.
