Neighbourhood
“Of all the neighborhoods in Northeast L.A.—if not the entire city—none have changed as rapidly as Highland Park. The area started the 20th century as an artsy enclave filled with handsome Craftsman homes and ended it as a community beleaguered with gang activity. Today, lifelong citizens and, yes, gentrifiers have turned Highland Park into a pleasant place where old-school taquerias and hip new bistros coexist.”
