  WHAT’S LIVING IN Lincoln Heights LIKE?

Lincoln Heights is a small neighborhood four miles east of downtown Los Angeles. As the oldest suburb of the city (it was founded in the 1830s), the community is home to grand Victorian-style homes built by its early residents. By the early 20th century it had become the core of Southern California's Italian-American population. It's been gradually gentrifying in recent years but is still an affordable place to live.

You'll find some basic shopping and grocery stores all within walking distance given the neighborhood's size. The landmark Lincoln Park provides a good spot to have a picnic, lounge by its lake, or let the kids run around.

Lincoln Heights is bordered on the north by Cypress Park and Montecito Heights, on the east by El Sereno, on the south by Boyle Heights, and on the west by Chinatown and Elysian Park.
