Varrio Diamond is one of the oldest Varrios on the West Side, as well as one of the hardest and most respected all around. The greater Varrio was located dead smack in the middle of the other olden neighborhoods like Bunker Hill, Palo Verde/Alpine, Angelino Heights and Belmont Heights. Over to the east was the Varrio Alpine and to the west the Bunker Hill Barrio stretched all the way to meet with the Market Barrio on 3RD and Broadway. Bunker Hill together with the Temple-Beaudry greater area were Varrio Diamond was born, survived until the late 50’s when the area was targeted for urban renewal. The build up of the Civic Center and the subsequent construction of the 110 Freeway, destroyed not only a good chunk of Bunker Hill but a large section of Varrio Diamond as well. Today, the birthground "DIAMOND STREET" proper, is cut off in half by the freeway. The Varrio nevertheless has maintained itself strong ever since on the West Side of the freeway; even with the destruction of part of its neighborhood and the build up of adjacent areas. Some claim Diamond was started in the very early 60s, still others claim the orgins of the Varrio go back to the 1930s. But whether Varrio Diamond is from the 30s, 50s or 60s, the fact remains that Diamond is an original West Side Varrio that is hardcore to the bone and has represented the Chicano style to the fullest!
