Westchester is a neighborhood that straddles Los Angeles and the Westside Region of Los Angeles County. The neighborhood is part of the city of Los Angeles and is known for its secluded character.
It is the home of Loyola Marymount University, the Otis College of Art and Design, and Westchester Enriched Sciences Magnet Schools, formerly Westchester High School. Two notable examples of Googie-style architecture are located within the community. The Los Angeles International Airport takes up the southwestern portion of Westchester territory.
