According to news release from the city of West Hollywood, the Eastside has changed over the last few centuries, specifically with the unique urban design, that stretches to N. LaBrea Avenue to the east, Fountain Avenue to the north, N. Hayworth Avenue to the west, and the West Hollywood city boundary to the south of Willoughby Avenue, west of Gardner and Romaine Street to the east side of Gardner.

The Eastside has a mix of regional local retail shops throughout the length of the Santa Monica Boulevard and residential areas adjacent on the north and south, a great place for walking and sightseeing. The Eastside is also filled with a community of Russian-speaking people and has a variety of markets and shopping venues.

The Gateway at N. La Brea Avenue and Santa Monica Boulevard has gained an interest in the development and new residential housing.
