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]

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.
