Things feeling a little more… crowded lately? New U.S. Census data released last week show the Los Angeles County population surpassed 10 million residents in 2013. Both Los Angeles and Orange Counties have some of the high concentration of "crowded homes," as displayed by a Los Angeles Times map of the most crowded zip codes.
How does Northeast Los Angeles fair? Not too bad. The 90026 area code, which includes neighborhoods like Echo Park and Silver Lake, comes in at 15.8% crowded. For comparison, nearby Westlake (zip code 90057) has a 39.9% crowding rate. The 90065 zip code, including neighborhoods like Mount Washington and Glassell Park, are 14.5% crowded. Highland Park and other 90042 neighborhoods are looking at a 16% crowding.
