Carthay Square is a small but affluent neighborhood near the center of Los Angeles. It is between Mid-Wilshire and Pico-Robertson to the east and west, and bordered by Wilshire Blvd. to the north and Pico Blvd. to the south. Carthay Square may also be referred to as just Carthay, and includes Carthay Circle, and South Carthay. There is one public elementary school, Carthay Center Elementary, run by L.A. Unified School District. This is an LAUSD magnet school offering a well-respected garden science program and an environmental studies program and is open magnet school applicants in nearby areas.
The area was created by developer J Harvey McCarthy and was his most successful tract. In 1922 he purchased 136 acres which he named “Carthay Center”, intending to subdivide it into house lots and to install “high-class” improvements, including wide paved streets, parkways, and an ornamental street lighting system.
