Downey is a city in the southeastern portion of Los Angeles County in California. Located just thirteen miles to the southeast of downtown Los Angeles, it is a very close suburb of the big city and boasts a large population of its own, having more than 111,000 people in the city. Downey is perhaps best known as the birthplace of the Apollo space program. Originally inhabited by Native American tribes and then by Spanish explorers, the area was eventually settled in the 1800s and became a railroad area before becoming a farming community. While the space program provided a great deal of employment in the past, today it is primarily a retail city and the local hospital and rehabilitation center are among the largest employers.
