This chapter outlines the “stage model of gentrification” and neighborhood transition in Northeast LA through historical periods of emergence of the streetcar suburbs, then decline with the rise of outer freeway suburbs and white flight followed by residential succession by incoming Latin American and Asian immigrants. The presence of a revitalization stage involving immigrant pioneers and homesteaders, followed by speculator investors and more affluent gentrifiers is outlined. There follows analysis of U.S. Census of Population and Housing data on racial/ethnic transition and the recomposition of the household structure. Business data are presented that explores the sectoral profile of enterprises and identify growth trends.

Keywords:   Stage model of gentrification, Neighborhood revitalization, Streetcar suburbs, White flight, Outer suburbs, Immigrants, Racial/ethnic transition
