Historic Filipinotown was officially designated by Los Angeles City Council District 13 as one of the city's historic geographic areas on August 2, 2002. It is the first Filipino community in America to merit a named area with distinct geographic boundaries. Also known as the Temple-Beverly Corridor, this area is located just west of central downtown. Historic Filipinotown was once home to one of the largest Filipino enclaves in California, a place where many Filipinos purchased their first homes, raised families, and established businesses. The cultural continuity of Filipino families and businesses in the corridor in the 21st century inspired the collective efforts of Filipino organizations, Los Angeles community leaders, and individuals working in concert to establish Historic Filipinotown and maintain its vibrant culture.

About the Author:

Carina Monica Montoya, a native of Los Angeles and the author of Filipinos in Hollywood, collected the vintage images for this volume from Los Angeles historical organizations and Filipino families who settled in and around the Temple-Beverly Corridor in the early years. These remarkable photographs illustrate developments that led Filipinos to a corner of the city they could call home and commemorate one of the most distinctive Asian/Pacific cultural legacies in Los Angeles.

Title: Book Traces History of LA's Filipinotown

Author: Karla Maquiling

Publisher: Pinoy Centric

Date: 3/18/09
Carina Monica Montoya's new book, Los Angeles's Historic Filipinotown, commemorates one of the most distinctive Asian/Pacific cultural legacies in Los Angeles.
With vintage images collected from LA historical organizations and families who settled in and around Historic Filipinotown in its early years, Montoya, an LA native of Philippine ancestry, traces the history of this town, which was once home to one of the largest Filipino enclaves in California.
Officially designated by the City Council of Los Angeles in August 2002, Historic Filipinotown was where many early Pinoy settlers purchased their first homes, raised families, and established businesses during the turn of the 20th century. It is the first US community to ever merit a named area with distinct geographic boundaries.
Los Angeles City Council president Eric Garcetti writes the foreword for the book.
