About Los Angeles

The City of Angel needs no introduction. With almost four million residents Los Angeles is the second-most populous city in the United States, second only to New York City.  Los Angeles is the commercial, financial and cultural center of the Southern California region. The history of Los Angeles is a rich and diverse tapestry that spans centuries: In 1769, Spanish explorers led by Gaspar de Portolà and Junípero Serra arrived in the area and established the Mission San Gabriel Arcángel, which would become a focal point for Spanish colonization. The nearby pueblo (village) of El Pueblo de la Reina de los Ángeles (The Town of the Queen of the Angels) was founded in 1781. This marks the official founding of Los Angeles. After Mexico gained independence from Spain in 1821, Los Angeles became a Mexican pueblo. During this period, the city’s population grew, and it became an important center for cattle ranching and trade. Following the Mexican-American War (1846-1848), Los Angeles and California were ceded to the United States through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo in 1848. The city and region experienced significant changes as it transitioned from Mexican to American rule. The California Gold Rush in the 1850s brought a rapid influx of people to the region, spurring economic growth and development. Los Angeles became a transportation hub, and the city was officially incorporated as a U.S. city in 1850. The late 19th century saw the expansion of agriculture in the area, including citrus groves and vineyards. The construction of the Los Angeles Aqueduct in the early 20th century brought a reliable water supply to the city and contributed to its growth. Los Angeles experienced a population boom in the early 20th century, driven by the film industry, which found a home in Hollywood. The city’s climate, coupled with the burgeoning entertainment industry, attracted people from across the country. Los Angeles continued to grow and diversify, becoming a major cultural and economic center. The post-World War II era saw the expansion of suburbs, the development of freeways, and a significant increase in the city’s population. Like many American cities, Los Angeles was a focal point for civil rights and social justice movements in the 20th century. Events such as the Watts Riots in 1965 highlighted issues of social unrest. In the late 20th and early 21st centuries, Los Angeles evolved into a global city with a diverse population. It continued to be a hub for the entertainment industry, technology, and innovation. The city also faced challenges related to traffic congestion, housing affordability, and environmental concerns. Los Angeles has a diverse economy with a broad range of industries, best known as the home of the Hollywood film industry. It also has one of the busiest container ports in the Americas. In 2018, the Los Angeles metropolitan area had a gross metropolitan product of over $1.0 trillion, making it the city with the third-largest GDP in the world. Los Angeles has had a profound influence on American and global culture, with its contributions to music, film, art, and fashion being particularly notable. Los Angeles has a sprawling metropolitan area which covers the following zip codes: 90001 90021 90044 90077 90502 91330 91504 90002 90023 90045 90089 90710 91331 90003 90024 90046 90094 90717 91335 91601 90004 90025 90047 90095 90731 91340 91602 90005 90026 90048 90210 90732 91342 91604 90005 90027 90049 90211 90732 91343 91605 90006 90028 90056 90212 90744 91344 91606 90007 90029 90057 90230 90810 91345 91607 90008 90031 90058 90232 91040 91352 91608 90010 90032 90059 90245 91042 91356 90011 90033 90061 90247 91214 91364 90012 90034 90062 90248 91303 91367 90013 90035 90063 90272 91304 91401 90014 90036 90064 90290 91306 91402 90015 90037 90065 90291 91307 91403 90016 90038 90066 90292 91311 91405 90017 90039 90067 90293 91316 91406 90018 90041 90068 90302 91324 91411 90019 90042 90069 90402  91325 91423 90020 90043 90071 90501 91326 91436. The Akopyan Law Firm A.P.C. is headquartered in the City of Los Angeles.
