Hawthorne is a diverse, middle-class community that is seeing an influx of young professionals and families who are priced out of the more expensive neighborhoods closer to the beaches. Thanks to its proximity to the international airport and its own municipal airport, both Northrup Grumman and SpaceX have offices here.

Most of the property for sale consists of modest, single-story homes. There are plenty of affordable apartment for rent here.

Hawthorne is bordered on the north by Inglewood, on the east by Athens and Gardena, on the south by Lawndale and Alondra Park, and on the west by El Segundo.
