Angeleno Heights, still not hip or hot

The most recent issue of Angeleno magazine includes a story of  the “hippest hoods” and “hottest new nabes” of Los Angeles. The Victorian-era neighborhood of Angeleno Heights did not make the list. But just wait five years when Angeleno Heights is expected to join West Adams, the Hollywood Media District and the Cahuenga-Vine corridor on the hot hood-nabe list,  real estate agents told the magazine. Said agent Aaron Kirman of  Angeleno Heights’ 2015 prospects:

Angelino heights is one of the best ‘hidden neighborhoods’ in L.A. It is five minutes from the heart of downtown and close to surrounding L.A.suburbs. With its tree-lined walking streets, significant 1920s-Victorian architecture and the hip shops and restaurants in nearby Silver Lake and Echo Park, it will truly be one of the hottest and hippest neighborhoods.

  1. That 5-year projection sure sounds like spoken by a real estate agent. Kind of makes you want to invest your money there now — and make them some good fees.

    I would believe anything, anything at all that a burly, unshaven used car salesman says before I would believe a single syllable spoken by a real estate agent.

  2. 1920s Victorian?

  3. Gee if Angeleno Heights “follows” these other neighborhoods, that may be a historical first…

    West Adams became a historic district in the 1990s, nearly 20 years after the residents of Angeleno Heights created the first Historic Preservation Overlay Zone (HPOZ)…Which has become the model for the others…

    Hollywood Media District…Glendale Blvd., a mere stone’s throw from Angeleno Heights was the original home of some of the most infulential Hollywood studio’s in history (Mack Sennett’s Keystone Studio originally was right near what now is where Glendale Blvd. and the entrance to the 2 freeway meet)…

    and as far as the Cahuenga-Vine Corridor goes, when the residences and businesses are older than the cars driving down Hollywood Blvd., we’ll talk…

    as far as our friend (who hopefully takes the next five years to figure out what “Victorian” is)…I can only say this…most of the owners have been here for multi-generations…and we ain’t sellin’

  4. amen, we aint’t sellin’
