Normandie Avenue

Normandie Avenue is one of Los Angeles County's longest north-south streets. With a stretch of about 22.5 miles (36.1 km), it lies between Vermont Avenue and Western Avenue, starting off north of Franklin Avenue. At Wilshire Boulevard, the Metro Purple Line intersects at an underground subway station. Near that intersection, Robert F. Kennedy, President John F. Kennedy's brother, was shot in 1968. Through traffic on Normandie is directed onto Irolo Street between Wilshire Boulevard and just north of Olympic Boulevard. In this section, Normandie exists as a small residential street between 7th Street and the intersection of Normandie and Irolo streets, just south of San Marino Street. The avenue merges with Vermont Avenue south of Pacific Coast Highway in Harbor City.

The intersection of Florence and Normandie is famous as the starting point of the 1992 Los Angeles Riots.
