1st Street is an east-west thoroughfare in Los Angeles and East Los Angeles, California. It serves as a postal divider between north and south and is one of a few streets to run from West Los Angeles (across the Los Angeles River) to East Los Angeles. Though it serves as a major road east of downtown Los Angeles, it is a mostly residential street to the west.[1]

For over a mile between Hoover Street and Glendale Boulevard, 1st Street is synonymous with Beverly Boulevard.


The Gold Line runs on east 1st Street between Alameda and Indiana Streets; it operates the Little Tokyo/Arts District, Pico/Aliso, Mariachi Plaza, Soto and Indiana stations. Metro Local line 14 runs through west First Street and Metro Local line 30 through East First Street. The under constructed Metro Regional Connector will created a new light rail subway station on the intersection of 1st Street and Central Ave.
