  WHAT’S LIVING IN Baldwin Hills LIKE?

Baldwin Hills is an affluent hillside neighborhood and is home to the largest middle- and upper middle-class African American community in Los Angeles. Baldwin Hills has a tight-knit community and many of the homeowners have lived there for decades. The local claim to fame is that Baldwin Hills hosted the 1932 Los Angeles Olympics.

There is not much in the way of shopping or dining within Baldwin Hills but you'll find plenty of options in adjacent neighborhoods.

The neighborhood has a mix of grand mansions as well as modest bungalows, and given its hillside perch your home here will likely have great views of the Los Angeles area.

When you want to get outdoors you can head to the nearby Kenneth Hahn State Recreation Area, which has hiking, a Japanese garden, playgrounds, sports fields and courts, and a lake stocked with catfish and trout. Near the park you'll also find an active petroleum field, but the pumps are not noisy.

Baldwin Hills is bordered on the north by Mid-City, on the east by Crenshaw, on the south by View Park-Windsor Hills, and on the west by Culver City.
