  1. Wow, this one is beautiful inside and out!

  2. 500 thousand for a house in hlp, wow.. Who would pay for that to live in a crime ridden neighborhood.

  3. “Jesus is here” how about you make a comment based on no factual evidence . Oh wait, you just did. Why are you on the Eastsider blog again?

    “The LALife Crime Index for Highland Park is 18. That’s about the same as the LA County average. It measures violent crime reported, so lower is better.”


  4. We love HP! And, this community has so much to offer. Great looking house!
