Chicken Boy in Highland Park

Unlock the Hidden Gems of Northeast L.A.

A hilly area situated between Downtown Los Angeles and Pasadena along the Arroyo Seco, Highland Park is one of L.A.’s oldest settled areas. In the early 20th century, Highland Park and Pasadena were known as havens for the artists and intellectuals who led the Arts & Crafts movement. In the 1960s and 70s, it became populated predominantly with Latinos and other ethnic groups.

In the 2000s, Highland Park once again became a mecca for creatives, who were attracted by the historic Craftsman homes and relatively low rents. Trendy shops, galleries, restaurants and bars have opened along Figueroa Street and York Boulevard, with businesses on both streets being the reasons why Highland Park is the hot L.A. neighborhood of the moment. But there are many hidden gems in the area that are off the beaten path and worth checking out, both old and new.
