Area between South Central Los Angeles and East Los Angeles also known as the "Gateway Cities" of Los Angeles. Highly Hispanic and include the cities of Los Angeles, Commerce, Vernon, Pico Rivera, Whittier, Montebello, Santa Fe Springs, Norwalk, Downey, Paramount, Maywood, La Mirada, Cudahy, Bellflower, Artesia, Cerritos, Bell, and Bell Gardens. It's mostly area codes with 562 and 323. These cities are mostly working-class neighborhoods with very few middle-class neighborhoods. They are hubs for families from South Central and East Los Angeles and sometimes considered a "step up" from the inner-city despite the fact that all the cities are unfortunately very highly gang infested.
