Highland Park is a rapidly gentrifying middle class neighborhood northeast of downtown Los Angeles. Boutiques and cocktail lounges have replaced the high crime that previously plagued this area.

It's known for having a close-knit community feel and many local institutions have remained despite the gentrification of the last few years. The main thoroughfare through town, North Figueroa, has the feel of an old-fashioned main street on some blocks.

The neighborhood's ten parks make it easy to stay active and meet your neighbors.

This is still one of LA's more affordable areas and housing stock consists mostly of modest homes and apartments.

Highland Park is bordered on the north by Eagle Rock, on the east by South Pasadena, on the south by Montecito Heights, and on the west by Mount Washington.
