After creating a neighborhood-by-neighborhood map of the city of Los Angeles online, the L.A. Times is now doing the same for the rest of L.A. County.
The map also identifies an area around southwestern Pomona and north of Walnut as “Ramona, an unincorporated area with a population of 4,053″ that allegedly includes Cal Poly and nearby land, some of which is actually within Pomona city limits. I’ve never heard of Ramona and neither has my colleague Joe Blackstock, who checked a midcentury map book that didn’t use the term either.
But it’s a useful project and mistakes will surely be cleaned up as readers react.
Favorite stat, about both Claremont and La Verne: “The percentage of white people is high for the county.” No kidding!
