The Neighborhood Of The Miracle Mile
The Miracle Mile in Los Angeles, California, is an area in the Mid-Wilshire region consisting of a 1.5-mile stretch of Wilshire Boulevard between Fairfax and Highland Avenues. It may also refer to the surrounding neighborhoods (including Park La Brea). The Miracle Mile District is bordered by the Fairfax District on the north, Hancock Park on the northwest, Mid-City on the southeast, West Pico on the south, and Carthay on the southwest. The district's boundaries are roughly 3rd Street on the north, Highland Avenue on the east, San Vicente Boulevard on the south, and Fairfax Avenue on the west.

Later it was integrated into the Pacific Electric Railroad System, a large network of trolley cars known as Red Cars. This transit system included a Wilshire Boulevard line through the post-WWII era. Parallel lines ran on Santa Monica Boulevard, Olympic Boulevard, and San Vicente Boulevard. They were connected by north-south lines on Fairfax and Highland Avenues. Continued...
