yes, it was primarily Jewish than Italian or visa versa, but I think Jewish first. This goes back maybe 60 years ago..We had very close family friends in Boyle Heights during and shortly after WW11, I can barely remember..

I'm not old enough to remember and I lie alot..Actually my music is pretty much the very late 40s to the 60s, My parents loved the swing music, loved to dance and my sister was into it as well (5 years older than me) it was and is still great to listen to, At least it made some sense..

L.A. does have a little Italy. I was there a few years ago. I'm not sure were. It is in downtown L.A. Ladybee
