  WHAT’S LIVING IN Fairfax LIKE?

Fairfax is a small neighborhood in central Los Angeles. It has been a historically Jewish neighborhood since the mid-1900s when a large number of LA's Jewish population relocated from Boyle Heights in East Los Angeles. Today it's a funky mash-up of Judaica shops, streetwear stores, and popular restaurants. On a walk through the neighborhood you'll pass young creatives, younger skateboarders, and families in Orthodox Jewish attire.

On its side streets are a mix of single-family homes in a variety of styles, duplexes, and small apartment buildings. 

Fairfax is bordered on the west by Beverly Grove, on the north by West Hollywood, on the east by Hollywood and Hancock Park, and on the south by Mid-Wilshire.
