It’s Baldwin Park

In a pair of blog posts a few months ago I casually referred to Baldwin Park as Bolen Parque. It upset and angered plenty of people in Hub City of the San Gabriel Valley and for that I apologize.

Especially ticked off were those in city government who don’t want their town’s good name besmirched by association with gang monikers.
Okay. I get it. It won’t happen again.
As it was never my intent to offend the good people of Baldwin Park, those posts have been removed.

  1. What was the name of the BPPD Chief of Police that “resigned” a few years back after it was discovered BP was not the safest city in the U.S.?, seems like the crime stats were undercooked. I remember huge banners hung in the city for a couple days. Ck SGVN archives

  2. Wait, a couple of months ago? Why all of a sudden is this now an issue? I remember reading those posts too, and I remember chuckling a little when I saw “Bolen Parque” as I didn’t know what it meant. I do now though.

  3. people get upset for the silliest things. i come from pico rivera where people call it tweeko-rivegra…whittier – shittier…norwalk – poorblock…its just a town you live in. i guess its like religion and politics now…SMH i can never understand the simple minds of some people to be offended of such ridiculous things…you can basically talk down on them before their religion or city

  4. Even if you remove offending the blog posts, Baldwin Park is still a ghetto slum with gang problems. I wonder if the city actually being gang infested offennds the city officials?
