My place is a dreamy 2nd floor apartment of a 2 floor house in Mt Washington—it's decorated with vintage treasures I've collected over time and has a casual and comfortable feel. Tons of light and windows in a relaxing neighborhood close to all that Highland Park, Eagle Rock, Cypress Park, and Glassell Park has on offer! Walking distance to the Heritage Square gold line Metro station as well as easy access to the 110 and the 5.
Super rad neighborhood to go for a walk—there's an awesome lookout point on Avenue 37 which is great any time of day or night. Check out the Self Actualization Center for some LA hippy-dippy realness …
Walking distance to the LA Metro—though I wouldn't recommend trying to see LA without a car.
