Cedillo Pays Tribute to Italian Heritage in CD1 With Unveiling of Eastside Market Square

Los Angeles—Councilmember Cedillo will unveil the ‘Eastside Market Square’ to commemorate the Italian heritage of CD1. In the early 1920’s, there were four Italian Markets within a two block area of Alpine Street in Los Angeles. These markets serviced a predominately Italian immigrant community which adopted the “Victor Heights” area as an Italian enclave. The Eastside Market is the last remaining original Italian market in the area. While the community has changed, the iconic location at Alpine Street and Figueroa Terrace remains unchanged. It is fully appropriate and proper to designate the intersection of Alpine Street and Figueroa Terrace as “Eastside Market Square.”
