Larchmont is a densely populated, highly diverse, half-square-mile neighborhood in the central region of the City of Los Angeles, California, where more than half the residents were foreign-born. Larchmont is notable for its quaint old-town shopping street and well-maintained historic homes. It has four schools and one small park. It has been the site of early and recent motion picture shoots.
Larchmont is the home of the Los Angeles Tennis Club and the former Black-Foxe Military Institute, a private preparatory school. Within the boundaries are such places as Lucy’s El Adobe Café, Raleigh Studios, formerly known as Famous Players Film Company and the Hollywood Historic Hotel.
About thirty-two percent of Larchmont residents aged 25 and older had earned a four-year degree by 2000, an average figure for the city.
