Civic Center, Los Angeles

4.1
The Civic Center neighborhood of Los Angeles, California is the administrative core of the City of Los Angeles, County of Los Angeles and a complex of city, county, state, and federal government offices, buildings, and courthouses.
The Civic Center is located in the northern part of Downtown Los Angeles, bordering Bunker Hill, Little Tokyo, Chinatown, and the Historic Core of the old Downtown. Depending on various district definitions, either the Civic Center or Bunker Hill also contains the Music Center and adjacent Walt Disney Concert Hall; some maps, for example, place the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in the Civic Center but the Disney Concert Hall in Bunker Hill.
The Civic Center has the distinction of containing the largest concentration of government employees in the United States outside of Washington, DC. The reason for the high concentration is simple: Los Angeles is the most populous county in the United States and its second largest city, and houses several state and federal functions for the region.

  • This is the center of downtown LA with the city hall and library, and now the big theaters. A redevelopment area that has matured.  more »
