Boyle Heights (Near Mariachi Plaza)

Print# 1-10

A little over a mile from downtown LA, where East First Street, Boyle and Pleasant Avenues come together, the Plaza is named for the mariachi musicians who have gathered here in their elegant charro suits since the 1930s, ready to be hired to play in restaurants, at private parties or community events.
