Highland Park

Sun-soaked, super fun, and somewhat gritty, Highland Park’s au naturale attitude attracts young and old alike. 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 easily connects commuters to the rest of the city.
