Located in the western San Gabriel Valley of Los Angeles County, Alhambra is only 8 miles from downtown Los Angeles. Originally the land on which Alhambra would sit was a part of a land grant given under the Spanish conquest in 1771 and it was in 1820 the land became a part of the Mexican Republic. Like a game of pass-the-parcel, the land was once again transferred into the hands of the United States following the Mexican-American War. Named after the famous Alhambra palace in Granada (Spain), it was developed as a suburb of Los Angeles in the mid-19th Century. Promoted as a "city of homes", Alhambra is awash in architectural wonders from bungalows to Spanish colonial and Mediterranean styles. There are 26 residential areas designated historic neighborhoods. Its main business district has been the hub of commerce since 1895 and it appears that the largest contributors to the local economy are car dealerships. The city is home to the Los Angeles campus of Platt College and the Los Angeles Campus of Alliant International University spawning the next generation of tech savvy youth. Its population is around the 83,089 mark with many carrying out their morning coffee rituals in one of the many cafes before scurrying off to a coworking venue to get creative.
