Normandie Avenue is one of the streets in Los Angels Metro.

In the late 1910s, Japanese-American businessman Takejiro Kusanagi bought two lots of land here and built a rental house there. (1)

According to City of Los Angels 2018, in the late 1930s (1939), there was an Art Deco commercial building housing several Japanese retail businesses at 3551-3563S Normandie Street, owned by Kusanagi. (2)
