Bandini Midgets in Commerce

Many neighborhoods can not maintain themselves with the level of competition. They may get pulled into other neighborhoods or they just fade out. Only discuss those areas from LOS ANGELES that are gone.

The Bandini Midgets were in the area of Bandini Park where I mapped Choppers 12 second turf.

Never heard of them either, Bandini Midgets is a funny name for a gang too, I get this magican midgets type of vibe from the name lol, there used to be a few gangs with wierd/funny names back in the days, hell there was a varrio out in the sfv called Orkas, which is defunct too, and also a varrio called "Penguin City" out in anaheim, california, funny none the less.

They were listed as a gang in the 1982 "Street Gangs of Los Angeles County" book, interesting..

Anaheim Penguin City. I know about them. Their hood is at Little People's Park.
Some of them are still around but they died out a lot.
