Glassell Park is a hilly neighborhood northeast of DTLA with good highway access and cheaper home prices than some of its more fashionable neighbors. Its twisting roads are mostly home to modest single-family houses and cute bungalows though you'll find some apartments on the main thoroughfares. This area draws home buyers looking for historic character with classic California living. 

There are a number of fast food and casual style restaurants in the neighborhood offering Mexican, Filipino, and Asian fare. You'll also find a few cafes, including the popular Lemon Poppy Kitchen. Nightlife is limited to just a few options, but one of them is the highly rated Verdugo bar: it has a large craft beer menu, an outdoor patio, and often hosts live music. 

On hot summer days the neighborhood Glassell Park Pool fills up with locals.

The schools in the area are not particularly good and a couple have earned poor marks.

Glassell Park is bordered on the north by Glendale, on the east by Eagle Rock, on the south by Mount Washington and Cypress Park, and on the west by Atwater Village and Silver Lake
