This neighborhood was named after Armenians who escaped genocide at the beginning of the 20th century.
Today, this neighborhood isn’t populated only by Armenians, although they still do live here.

If you decide to read some of his novels, make sure to read them in Little Armenia. Also, Little Armenia is home to a fantastic and glorious movie theatre, Vista.
