"Very Small Community In Southeastern LA"

Cudahy is a small city located in southeastern Los Angeles County. Latinos make up the majority of the population, which in 2010 was 24,000 residents.

Boarded by Bell on the north, Bell Gardens the east, South Gate on the south and Huntington Park on the West, Cudahy is known as having the second smallest amount of space (behind Hawaiian Gardens), thus being one of the most densely populated cities in the United States.

Because Cudahy is small, and quite frankly, not well known, you must travel to the neighboring cities for entertainment, shopping and so forth. Homes are very affordable, yet many are run down and the town looks like it has seen better days.

Unfortunately, the schools are poorly rated. It’s clear that there are some challenges in California school districts due to budget cuts, but the poorer communities really seem to suffer. However, almost 40 percent of Cudahy’s population has not completed the 9th grade. High school, students go to the nearby Bell High School or can apply to Maywood Academy High School.

Cudahy has a few parks and a library but overall, this small community lacks any real atmosphere.
  • Affordable housing
  • Lack of good schools
  • Nothing to do
