If New York City’s Brooklyn neighborhoods were bathed in sunshine, they might find their west coast counterpart in Los Angeles’ Highland Park. Not too far from Downtown, this northeast LA neighborhood is on the fast track to mass appeal. Historic homes combine with corridors replete with modern amenities and cozy bookshops tucked-away in secret corners. Despite its analog attitude, Highland Park’s evolution continues as it’s propelled by another moving accouterment—the Metro Rail Gold Line – which easily connects commuters to the rest of the city.
Thrillist picked Highland Park as one of the “12 coolest neighborhoods in America.” One of LA’s oldest hoods, Highland Park defies LA’s general ageism by walking the line between grungy and cool. It helps to have the city’s largest historic district, but a backdrop of colorful murals and graffiti mixed with historic Victorian homes and family-run businesses gives this place a feel of its own. As crime goes down, rent goes up — though it’s still cheaper here than in comparable LA ‘hoods — and you can see the change in the influx of cool bars, record stores, and gastropubs.
