The Central Area and Beacon Hill make-up some of the oldest residential neighborhoods in the city, and also some of the most ethnically diverse. The Central Area's impressive mix of ethnic groups includes a vibrant African American community, and residents from nearly every region of Asia. The neighborhood's Langston Hughes Cultural Arts Center and the El Centro de la Raza are testaments to the neighborhood's cultural heritage. The area is currently undergoing a notable, dynamic renaissance that has given rise to new condos, retail businesses, and an influx of new residents.
