The West Side (W/S) Harvard Park Brims are a long standing and active African American street gang founded in West Los Angeles, California during the late 1960s. This gang has the dubious distinction of being the only Blood territory that is surrounded by Crips on all 4 sides of their turf: Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips in the west, the 67 Neighbor Hood Crips to the south, the Rollin 50s Neighborhood Crips to the north and the 59 Hoover Criminals Gang to the east. Their territory is bounded by Western Avenue in the west towards Hoover Street in the east, between Slauson Avenue in the north to 64th Street in the south. This gang was responsible for pushing the 59 Hoover Criminals Gang off of a portion of their turf. They have been constantly active since 1969, the first active year of the traditional black gangs of Los Angeles, and predates both the Bloods and Crips. They were known as the the L.A. Brims in its earliest conception, originally consisting of the "59 Brims", then "Block Brims" started by Terry Goudeau, then the 62 Brims came out. There is also 61 Brims. The main clique of this gang are the 62 Brims (or Six-Deuce Brims) found on 62nd Street. The 59 Harvard Park Brims was retired since they were constantly locked in battle with the 65 Menlo Crips and 55 Neighbor Hood Crips. However, the Harvard Park Brims have an unofficial truce with their former rivals the 59 Hoover Criminals Gang due to their shared hatred of the Rollin 50s Neighborhood Crips. Other rivals include the Rollin 30s Harlem Crips, Rollin 40s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, Rollin 90s Neighborhood Crips, the West Boulevard Crips, 65 Menlo Crips, the 6 Pacc East Coast Crips, the 46 Neighbor Hood Crips, 48 Neighbor Hood Crips, 67 Neighbor Hood Crips, School Yard Crips, all Hoover Criminals, all Trouble Gangster Crips, all Neighbor Hood Crips and the Hispanic 18th Street Gang. They are cliqued up with the Van Ness Gangster Brims and the Fruit Town Brims and are considered allies of the LA Denver Lane Bloods. Due to their shared hatred for Neighbor Hood Crips, they are also friendly towards the Eight Tray Gangster Crips. Additionally, members have also been traditionally friendly towards the Florencia 13 gang as well. A member of the Harvard Park Brims was convicted for killing LAPD officer Daniel Pratt of the 77th Division [1].
