Homes for Sale

Central Alameda features a wonderful variety of designs for anyone looking to invest in a new home.

What You'll See

With such a dense population and central location, expect to see lots of traffic clogging up the streets. Even side streets can become noisy, crowded entanglements as drivers try to get to other parts of Los Angeles. You will also see busy Angelenos rushing in and out of local shops and restaurants.

Where to Eat

Long Beach East Avenue runs north to south in Central-Alameda, effectively dividing the neighborhood into two distinct halves. Much of the eastern portion is filled with businesses, leaving the western half to be largely residential. Due to Central-Alameda's relatively small size and central location, it has one of the highest population densities in the entire county. That means apartment complexes are the most common type of residence. While the occasional single-family home can be found, those who are looking to join the majority of residents who rent are most likely going to live in one of the available apartments.

Where to Live

Located south of the Santa Monica freeway and east of the Harbor Freeway, Central-Alameda is a densely populated area near downtown Los Angeles. Historic South-Central lies to its western border, and the Los Angeles River lies to its east. The area has a diverse cultural history that is still present today.

The Perfect Sunday

Head to one of the great local Mexican restaurants and enjoy some traditional Sunday albondigas soup. This favorite dish is generally served just one day a week, so do your best not to miss it. Now that the NFL has returned to Los Angeles, residents can head to the Coliseum to watch the Rams play.

Friday Night Fun

Central-Alameda has some fun local bars that are great for grabbing a no-frills drink or two at the start of the night. But because of Central-Alameda's location near downtown Los Angeles, residents have many options when it comes to weekend fun. L.A. Live is home to state-of-the-art movie theatres boasting massive screens and ice cold beverages paired with Hollywood's latest blockbusters. Downtown is also where several prominent music venues call home, and the Microsoft Theatre often showcases world-class acts. Nearby USC also hosts football games on Fridays so you can watch great college football without traveling too far.
