Little Armenia is a community located within the Hollywood district of Los Angeles. It is bounded on the north by Hollywood Boulevard and on the south by Santa Monica Boulevard. The Hollywood (101) Freeway is generally considered the western boundary and Vermont Avenue the eastern boundary. Little Armenia overlaps with Thai Town and is part of East Hollywood. The name is derived from the large number of residents of Armenian descent, the large number of Armenian restaurants and stores, and the presence of the Armenian Apostolic Church. Every year on April 24, large numbers of people gather to take part in a protest for the formal recognition of the Armenian Genocide that took place during and after World War I by the Ottoman Empire which was replaced by the Republic of Turkey.
