Westchester is a highly diverse, high-income, home-owning neighborhood within the South Bay Region of Los Angeles County, California. The neighborhood is part of the city of Los Angeles, and its residents are, on the average, better-educated and older than in the city at large, and the average household size is lower. There are a relatively large number of military veterans.
The Los Angeles International Airport takes up the southwestern portion of Westchester territory. It is the home of Loyola Marymount University, the Otis College of Art and Design and Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnet Schools, formerly Westchester High School. Two notable examples of Googie-style architecture are found within the neighborhood’s borders.
