Northeast Los Angeles is an area of the city of Los Angeles, northeast of Downtown Los Angeles, east of the Los Angeles River, bounded on the north by the cities of Glendale and Pasadena, and bounded on the east by several cities of the San Gabriel Valley.
The area is home to Occidental College located in Eagle Rock. The bulk of the area closer to Pueblo de Los Angeles-Downtown Los Angeles was part of the original Spanish and Mexican land grants of Rancho San Rafael and Rancho San Pascual when the city incorporated in 1850.

Other cities in Northeast Los Angeles were soon annexed to the city: Garvanza (1899), Arroyo Seco (1912) and Eagle Rock (1923). Its development was served by the Los Angeles Railway “Yellow Cars.”
