WHAT PEOPLE LOVE

Highland Park MosaicLike most of Northeast Los Angeles, people love the central location. Everything – Downtown Los Angeles, Old Town Pasadena, Glendale and the Valley is within an easy access radius.

Highland Park has changed dramatically over the last 20 years. Back then the area was working class and heavily Latino, but today it is Hipster Central.

New businesses spring up everyday – hip and interesting bars, eateries, boutiques and services unimagined by this Highland Park Native. In addition, old buildings and businesses are seeing new life. The Highland Park Bowl (Mr. T’s) and the Masonic Building have been renovated and reenergized.

People love the character and texture of the homes and topography. Craftsman, Mexican and Spanish bungalows are nestled in gentle hillsides. On the eastern edge of the neighborhood, in Garvanza, an important center of the Arts and Crafts movement flourished, beginning with the relocation of the Judson Studios from downtown to its current location on Avenue 66, just south of York Boulevard.
