realestate la-fi-property-report-westlake-20141204-story.html "Northern edge of Westlake finally getting developers' attention" ''Los Angeles Times'' Historic Filipinotown was created to help continue the history of this part of the neighborhood and promote economic, civic, commercial, cultural, industrial, and educational interests and common wealth of local residents, business owners, and other stakeholders. Community plans drawn up for Historic Filipinotown also impact the community plans of Silver Lake-Echo Park and a small section of Westlake south of Beverly Boulevard. As a result, Historic Filipinotown must compete with these other localities for services and benefits while avoiding any conflict with their larger community parents. Filipino Americans represent the largest population of Asian Americans in California and also have one of the oldest communities of Asian Americans in the United States. The earliest settlement can be found in enclaves such as Manila Village in Jefferson Parish and St. Malo (St. Malo, Louisiana) in St. Bernard Parish which were founded in 1763 and became home to approximately 2,000 Filipino sailors and laborers. With houses plat-formed on stilts, the fishermen caught and dried their precious commodity, shrimp, for export to Asia, Canada, South and Central America. They introduced innovations such as "dancing the shrimp" and shrimp farming to the United States. Weather conditions eventually destroyed St. Malo in 1915 and Manila Village in 1965. On July 24, 1870, the Spanish-speaking residents of St. Malo founded the first Filipino social club called Sociedad de Beneficencia de los Hispano Filipinos to provide relief and support for the group’s members, including the purchasing of a burial places for their deceased. thumbnail left St. Malo, Louisiana St. Malo (File:5ViewsOfStMaloLouisiana1883.jpg) and Manila Village is the historic precursor to the City of Los Angeles' Historic Filipinotown. Despite the fact that there are other enclaves of Filipinos living outside this district (such as Carson (Carson, California), Cerritos (Cerritos, California), West Covina (West Covina, California), Panorama City (Panorama City, California), and Eagle Rock (Eagle Rock, Los Angeles)) it was named "Historic Filipinotown" since it was one of the few areas where Filipinos first settled during the early part of the 20th century and home to key Filipino organizations, Filipino churches (Filipino Christian Church, Iglesia ni Kristo, St. Columban Filipino Catholic Church, United Church of God Ministries, Praise Christian Fellowship, and Congregational Christian Church), housing (Manila Terrace, Mindanao Towers, Mountain View Terrace, and Villa Ramos), and social service centers. Many Filipino American families began purchasing homes and establishing businesses in the area beginning from the 1940s, shifting away from the downtown area now known as Little Tokyo (Little Tokyo, Los Angeles, California) in the 1920s and the Bunker Hill (Bunker Hill, Los Angeles) area later. In a section of downtown Los Angeles now known as Little Tokyo (Little Tokyo, Los Angeles), a thriving community known as Little Manila existed and flourished for over two decades (1920s-1940s). This community of mostly males established numerous restaurants, pool halls, café's, employment agencies and barbershops which became the hub where Filipinos congregated, lived, socialized, organized, and networked among their compatriots to find companionship, fellowship and work. One would merely drive to First and Main Streets to solicit Filipinos; either by Hollywood studios in need of ethnic-type extras for cinematic productions or many others in need of cheap labor. Ethnic enclaves like Chinatown (Chinatown, Los Angeles), Historic Filipinotown (Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles), Koreatown (Koreatown, Los Angeles), Little Armenia (Little Armenia, Los Angeles), Little Ethiopia (Little Ethiopia, Los Angeles), Tehrangeles, Little Tokyo (Little Tokyo, Los Angeles), and Thai Town (Thai Town, Los Angeles) provide examples of the polyglot (Multilingualism) character of Los Angeles.
