  1. There are still some great buys here relative to any other neighborhood in LA proper.

  2. Yeah. I hear the folks of Boyle Heights are super welcoming to newcomers; especially artists .

    • Ha. Just don’t start an artisanal cheese shop and people will be friendly, don’t worry. 95% of BH residents are mellow, cool, hardworking folks who don’t mind someone new to talk to.

    • Boyle Heights has NEVER been for the frightened or feeble-hearted. Just like the rest of L.A.. wasn’t for immigrants like my parents for the majority of the 20th century but they persevered anyway. In fact, immigrants remind me more of real Americans than the balding alternative. I hope I never lose the fearlessness I inherited from my parents. After all, it’s what compelled me to buy in N.EL.A. in the mid-90s when the rest were running for the hills, deserts, and distant burbs. Good riddanc!. L.A. has never been cleaner or safer. I guess we now know what the problem was all along. Not enough fearless immigrants with old-fashioned American(?) values and entrepreneurship..

      Viva Boyle Heights!

      • Fearlessness? That’s probably all that you could afford back in the 90s. LA has never been cleaner or safer.? LOL.

        • That is correct and now you couldn’t even afford to rent from me. How Sweeeeet it is.

        • “LA has never been cleaner or safer.? LOL” If it wasn’t, the gentry would’ve never dared invest in our communities otherwise, i.e., safety, appeal, and potential precedes investment NOT the other way around.

      • Give me a break. Boyle Heights is just an inner-city ghetto. Although I will be the first to admit that it’s a great investment opportunity for a first-time home buyer or landlord.

        I’m still confused how we have normalized the idea that it’s perfectly acceptable that our neighborhoods are not for the “freightened and feeble hearted.” When, as a society did it become ok to have streets littered with trash and graffiti and weekly murders? Why is this defended as part of the “charm” or “edginess” of a neighborhood? I can’t imagine that it is psychologically beneficial to live in a neighborhood where you feel uncomfortable keeping your front door locked even when you are home. In this day and age, when we as a society are supposedly more enlightened, shouldn’t we be striving for better rather than bragging about the disfunction of our neighborhood?

        • Jawbone,
          If you haven’t picked up on the narrative of ‘procipio” it is clear that trash, graffiti and murders is a small price to pay to keep whitey out.

          Week and feeble = white, outsider.

  3. TheEntireCountryisGentrifying

    No thanks. Not welcoming at all! I’ll look for value and acceptance in any of the “Parks” Echo Park, Highland Park or Glassell Park. I wouldn’t want protesters kicking out businesses where I live.

    • Another less unwelcome outsider . . . It’s Working!

      • Racism is? Call it what it is.

        • I agree. There is a built-in aversion to the race(?) of frightened and feeble-hearted gentrifiers. Of course, unlike an actual race, cross-over is an option. All that’s needed is to grow a pair and a heart. Otherwise, the “race” of nutless and heartless will never make it in Boyle Heights.

          • Most of your posts are filled with macho-man bravado, boasts about your status as a rental-property owner, and slams on yellow-bellied Anglos. I’m guessing that you’re in your late 40s or early 50s; why do you still have so much to prove?

      • Is this the real you: The person with the mask spitting at people outside the BH art gallery? Or the Boyle Heights business owner quoted in LA Magazine who approved of gentrification, if it was done by “brown” people. Or perhaps you scrawled an obscene reference to “white art” on the an art gallery?

  4. Boyle Heights is the most welcoming place I’ve ever lived, I couldn’t be happier. The neighborhood and community are wonderful. I feel safe and secure, everyone looks out for each other…
    I mean… Balding Eagle and TheEntireCountryisGentrifying, Boyle Heights is awful – you’d hate it. Absolutely right – stay on those hills, behind those big fences, you’ll be much better off. Echo Park (you like Parks right?) has a Guisado’s. Absolutely no need for you to come here whatsoever.

  5. a penny a day makes sense

    It’s slowly improving! There’s great people in Boyle Heights. We just need to lose the ones who have 10 ppl in a small house with 10 cars and chickens. As a 5-10 year investment, the opportunity is there. It’s proximity to downtown speaks for itself.

  6. Concrete jungle with no character at all in my opinion, and the name brings to mind the mental image of a puss filled “boil”, not exactly the most luxurious place that would be an easy sell. Still, there’s literally no where else you can buy a house for under half a million in the immediate area, and the less financially successful gentrifiers will still probably make a go at it if they can’t afford Echo Park (Which many can’t these days).

  7. Silver lake and echo park seemed more welcoming to me prior to gentrification. Experienced a few aristocratic stares and cold service here and there. Wonder what it was? My working class attire? My LA dodger hat? I was respectful. Didnt cut a fart. Then i buy something and they act like they did Me a favor…..wow

  8. Anti-Gentrification homies just need to start posting the statistics about freeway pollution in Boyle Heights. Who wants their kid to have Asthma?
