BARRIO EAST SIDE TORRANCE

ESxT is the B'EST

B'EST main heart of the barrio lies off Western Ave between 224th and 227th streets in the Harbor Area

Plaza Del Amo, 224, 225, 226, 227 228, Harvard, Denker and Normadale Park is all Barrio East Side Torrance

B’EST boundaries

(N) 223rd
(S) Sepulveda
(E) Normandie
(W) Western


The original neighborhood started on Menlo Street off of 228th between Vermont, and Figueroa.

B’EST never had any ties to any other neighborhoods period!! Never broke off any other varrio, B’EST is its own original creation.

TxFlats, La Rana, La Loma, Harbor City and Keystone varrios have been around much longer than B'EST and so naturally there is going to be some speculation about ties or breakoffs. But B'EST are no one's rejects, followers, etc. B'EST is the Original neighborhood from East Side Torrance.

B’EST is really within the "Harbor Gateway”. Which is part of L.A., and not City of Torrance proper. And B’EST isnʻt even patrolled by Torrance PD!!! LAPD Harbor Division patrols. Only when LAPD Harbor Division requests assistance, is when Torrance P.D. rolls in.

Varrio Bandana or Color: Straight Blue or Black, and Baby Blue.

Varrio Logo or Lid: Anything with the Carolina Panthers.

B’EST adopted the "Panther" as Thee Varrio symbol. All the Homies sport Panther jerseys and lids. And once you have proven to be a well established solid vato, you can get your Pantera placa tatted on you. Most all the veteranos have it stamped on their left or right forearm. Anyone that's hit the torcida and met B’EST Homies will tell you all the veteranos BʻEST vatos have the Pantera.

The speculation is that the Panther is the same as the Jaguar, and as all Raza knows, the Mayans and Aztecs revered these creatures because of their power and mysteriousness they possessed.

Original Clika: East Side Torrance Peewees, aka Pequenos. From the 1970's thru the late 90's. Still around but have given ground to the younger generations. B’EST has homeboys in their 50's pushing the PWS clika.

2nd Generation Clika: East Side Torrance Diablos. From the late 80's thru the late 90's. Solid B’EST motherfuckers who held down the varrio and stood tall during the 80s and 90s era wars...

3rd Generation Clika: East Side Torrance Lil Raskals. From the late 90's to present times. B’EST newest clika kicking up dust in the varrio and keeping it going strong. The Raskals Clika started after the Homeboy Alejandro" Lil Raskal" Rivera was killed. That was in the late 90's when most everyone from B’EST was away, locked up, in retirement, etc. Lil Raskal was the one recruiting and keeping the varrio going in those days. After he passed, all the little Homies who kicked it with him wanted a clique started after his placaso. They had to earn it and they did.

Some Raza may hear "TORRANCE" and think white people and nice neighborhood. Those same Raza may hear IE or SB and think the same thing. Move my family out there and get away from the "life"..

But BESTrust ~> is down with the business

B'EST don't fuck round !!!

I guess if the varrio was named EAST SIDE HARBOR GATEWAY people would get off the Torrance niceness thing, Que No?

With the times come many changes, and in 2008 la jura got an injunction thrown on little B’EST Varrio.. L.A. City came down hard with the injunction on the Varrio, and ever since they've started building condos and nice apts in and around Plaza Del Amo, so who knows, B’EST might be wiped out by City redevelopment, but never by the enemigas!

B’EST has earned their reputation, and are well known in the Harbor Area, and today the Varrio walks every yard in the pinta.

Txflats, LA Rana, keystone were all Torrance barrio's and yes at one time even LA loma was a Torrance barrio's. At one time LA loma was an east Torrance barrio's, before the city of Carson was formed in 1968. Torrance city limit went all the way to Wilmington ave. At Carson street. Just a little history.
