Little Ethiopia, in Los Angeles

Hello everybody, today I decided to do my first photo-essay with my new camera. The neighborhood selection was tough, but after much deliberation, I decided to do Little Ethiopia, the heart of the 60,000-strong Ethiopian community here, in Los Angeles.

Any comments/feedback/input/etc welcomed Enjoy!


































...And they told me do not forget to go to this festival!

Cool Pics.

I didn't know there were 60,000 Ethiopians in LA.
Is it the second-largest community in the US, after DC or first?

great place to go. We have a great culture and like to share it with the the world. DC can get its own little ethiopia. I wonder if there are any other african communities like this in the US. if there are, please post pics

An estimated 200,000 people of Ethiopian descent lived in the United States in 2007, with Washington DC, Minneapolis, and Atlanta the three largest Ethiopian centers.

Thank you for those pictures. I am in the DC area and this is where the largest Ethiopian community is. Some estimates put us at over 200 000 in the DC metro area alone, you cannot walk down any street without running into an Ethiopian here.

dc about 100-150 thousand and the use about 400 thousand. 60k sounds about right for LA.
