‘hoods explored: Lincoln Heights

Lincoln Heights

Lincoln Heights

We love Lincoln Heights…

Like most other areas in Northeast Los Angeles (NELA) – we see why there has been such growth there over the last decade.

Near DTLA & Chinatown, with sweeping views from many of the area’s hills – this community is an example of L.A.’s adherence to mixed residential, commercial & industrial neighborhoods – with a great blend of old homes, new homes, undeveloped land, & community businesses. Stroll down to Mission Street & you’ll find the Forever 21 corporate office- or take a short walk from Lincoln Heights’ main drag on Broadway to Lincoln Park – a fun & relaxing spot with some great outdoor art.

You will find authentic, home-style Mexican food at any of the local Mexican restaurants, or stop by the local favorite King Taco for the best late-night & delicious fare.

On North Broadway, sitting a little bit back from the sidewalk, you’ll see a grand mansion with eye-catching art, trees & decor.

The Horace P. Dibble House on Broadway has a rich history & currently houses a community of artists.

Check out the KCET profile of the house here.

So apparently you can find the best elotes in Los Angeles in Lincoln Heights, if you are willing to wait a little bit. Take a look at this great video about “The Corn Man” – a local businessman & eloterie who has been mastering his craft for almost 30 years!

We dug our time exploring Lincoln Heights & we look forward to watching it grow into one of the premiere NELA destinations.
