Did you know that West Los Angeles is home to nine consulates? We didn't, but thanks to the latest newsletter from the community's Neighborhood Council, we do now. They say eight national consulates are on the south side of Wilshire Boulevard, between the 405 Freeway and the Santa Monica border:

  • Great Britain
  • Italy
  • The Netherlands
  • Greece
  • Bulgaria
  • Romania
  • Switzerland
  • Croatia

A ninth consulate -- the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia -- is found on Sawtelle. And Austria has a consulate on the north side of Wilshire, but that's within the Brentwood Community Council's territory.
