Boyle Heights — Boyle Heights is one of the densest neighborhoods in Los Angeles, which makes overnight parking on city streets tough for all residents. But it seems likely that no one in Boyle Heights has it worse than the families of Estrada Courts, Ramona Gardens and, to a slightly lesser extent, Pico Gardens. These public housing developments are isolated communities, and its residents are bound by rules and special circumstances that make finding parking even more difficult.
“I have lived here for nine years, and it keeps getting worse,” said Ana Bryant, president of the Ramona Gardens Residents Advisory Council.
Simply put, there are fewer parking spaces than residents with cars.
Boyle Heights Beat is a bilingual community newspaper produced by its youth and a sister website with stories also produced by community members “por y para la comunidad.”
