The map of LA is located in Southern California on the Pacific coast. The city is the seat of the county with the same name. According to one estimate, the city population is 3,976,322 in 2016, up from 11,500 in 1887. LA has a population of 10,179,716 (as of July 2004), while the urban area of Los Angeles has a population of approximately 18.5 million. Los Angeles is an Olympic city: it has hosted the Summer Olympics twice (in 1932 and 1984) and will host them again in 2028.
LA sprawls across a broad coastal plain situated between mountains and the Pacific Ocean as you can see in the map; the much larger LA county, which encompasses the city, contains some 90 other incorporated cities, including Beverly Hills, Pasadena, and Long Beach. LA also encompasses two of the Channel Islands, Santa Catalina and San Clemente; Mount San Antonio, familiarly known as Mount Baldy or Old Baldy, 10,046 feet (3,062 metres) high; more than 900 square miles (2,330 square km) of desert; and 75 miles (120 km) of seacoast.
During the 1970s and 1980s, LA developed a downtown skyline similar to that of New York or Chicago like its shown in the map, as a result of a large-scale urban renewal project led by the Community Redevelopment Agency and financed by the federal government, LA, local developers and foreign capital. The policy of centralization was adopted after economic leaders in relation to the political power, including Black Mayor Tom Bradley (1973-1993), agreed to make LA the American metropolis of the Pacific.
LA in this map is a city built on a coastal plane nestled between two mountain ranges and a hilly peninsula. Below the mountain peaks of LA are canyons, valleys, deserts, rivers, lakes and ocean beaches. LA, actually a gigantic metropolis made up of 80 different neighborhoods, occupies every nook and cranny of this incredibly diverse topography, from the high snowy peaks of the San Gabriel Mountains to the sun-kissed sands of Venice Beach.
