Boyle Heights is a working class neighborhood directly to the east of downtown Los Angeles currently in the throes of gentrification. Initially a Jewish neighborhood with 30 synagogues where Yiddish was commonly spoken, it has evolved into a predominantly Latino community. Their cultural influence is evident in the famous taco trucks and Mexican restaurants here.
The signs of gentrification are clear as development starts on new apartment complexes and art galleries have opened up, often to a hostile reception from long-time residents who fear they will further drive up home prices.
Despite its proximity to downtown LA, you'll still find relatively affordable, modest homes. As mentioned, however, prices are increasing as it becomes for desirable to Angelenos.
Boyle Heights is bordered on the north by Lincoln Heights, on the east by East Los Angeles, on the south by Vernon, and on the west by Downtown Los Angeles.

The original location of a burgeoning taco empire, this cozy spot serves up...well, tacos. But they're really, really good.
One of the few reminders that this was once a Jewish enclave, this still-active temple was built in 1923 and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
This local favorite has been around since the 1960s and serves up delicious, down-home Mexican fare.
